Sleepaway Camp II (1988)

(AKA Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers)

"Camp Rolling Hills will never be the same. Not with their newest camp counselor Angela Johnson arriving. While there once was nothing but the best summer camp ever, it's now only a killing field to her. No matter what anyone does, Angela will have a problem with it. And when this woman has a problem with someone, she's not one to try and resolve it through conversation. No, she'd rather find inventive ways to make all the campers hearts stop beating using anything necessary to accomplish her goal. As the number of campers becomes noticably slimmer, it's up to one courageous girl to try and get out of Camp Rolling Hills alive."

Having just watched the third installment a couple of days ago, I actually found this one to be less than satisfying. It's a lot poorer in every way, the death scenes aren't all that inspirational, and although Valerie Hartman provides lots of booby footage, I just didn't get into it.

When Angela drowns the girl in the outside toilet, I was almost amused for a second, but nothing in this film is all that memorable. It seems it was made with hardly any budget at all so don't expect to see any cutting edge gore in this one.

I'll give it 1 out 10 just because it tried to be funny.
