Sleepaway Camp(Review)[Twisted Throwback Thursday]

Sleepaway Camp is celebrating its 37th year, which makes me feel old as heck, so I found it fitting to review this gem of a horror movie. The most talked about slasher film, mainly due to the shock ending. But there are other memorable bits such as the perverted cook, the line of "Eat shit and live!", and the kill involving a creative use of a curling iron.

The movie which was about murders taking place at a kids camp was responsible for starting the career of actress Felissa Rose, who starred as the main character Angela. It also spawned a franchise of 3 other films, with rumors of a possible remake on the way. The first film in the series was pretty entertaining, and if you are watching it for the first time, you almost will dismiss it as any other slasher film. But that the ending comes that gives this movie the edge above the rest.

So if you haven't seen this film yet or been on the fence about it, I highly recommend watching it. It is currently on Shudder and was also featured on The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs.

Till next time, stay safe and stay scared!! -Tha Thrilla-
