RETURN TO SLEEPAWAY CAMP (2008)
The original SLEEPAWAY CAMP is one of the nuttier, goofier of the 1980's slasher flicks that I am a big fan of. This one is a sorta decent sequel(part 5). Thanks to Wes Craven and that shit-hole smart-ass SCREAM movie in the 1990's they stopped making slasher movies that were any good. Of course whether any slasher movies are all that good is debatable. I find the golden age ones are enjoyable enough though. This being a modern-day version my expectations are pretty low. There's only a couple of newer slashers that I think are any good at all. LAID TO REST is a pretty decent one from what I remember and that's all that immediately comes to mind. Most of the kills in this are ridiculous and the cast is intentionally annoying. You wait for what feels like an eternity for the fat annoying kid to get killed. Best viewed with helpful alcohol. Isaac Hayes is in it for a bit and then disappears in what is sadly his last movie appearance. If you have a choice go with the 1983 recipe.
