I Recently Purchased Return To Sleepaway Camp on DVD and the friend I was with said she'd never heard of it... and you all know what that means: Franchise Movie Night! Yes, we sat through all 3 previous films before getting into the "Return" and let me tell you - it was definately worth the wait! Well, here's my review of the entire franchise if you, like her, haven't ever heard of it...

In the essence of Friday the 13th - it feels alot like it in fact. The story begins when a shy girl is ruthlessly picked on by the other campers at Camp Arawak. This infuriates her cousin, Ricky. And soon a string of bizarre "accidents" begin to happen to those who picked on her. The ending is one of the most chilling and freaky sequence of images that is sure to make you rest uneasy for nights to come. This one should not be missed.

Everyone's favorite transsexual psychopath is back! But this time she's a camp counselor at Camp Rolling Hills. And she's more vicous than ever in her attempt to take out the trash. (The campers that she sees aren't up to her standards of camping etiquite) This one's got a few more laughs than the original and doesn't try to scare you as much as it tries to gross you out. 2 Words: Out House! =shudders= It's a great popcorn flick and I respect it for following the story of the original and making its killer an icon. You should catch this one if you haven't seen it yet.

Angela's back at a new camp, this time as a misfit camper with punishment in mind for those who refuse to enjoy their time at Camp Neww Horizons. This one has some brutal death scenes and a pretty desent storyline. It stands on its own as a really good sequel to the original masterpiece. I can't call it scary though. I still recommend it if you haven't seen it. And if you haven't seen any of them, I would tell you to go out and buy the DVD Box Set of the first three films. It comes with a Bonus Disc of Production Footage from the unfinished "Sleepaway Camp IV: The Survivor". (The sequel that was never made).

This one was worth the wait! It feels alot like the original Sleepaway Camp in its attempt to get under your skin with its disturbing death scenes and make you feel uneasy throughout the duration of the film. It's the first entry that doesn't focus on Angela. Although, I didn't like that fact: I did like it's twisted ending!
