SLEEPAWAY CAMP (1983)
While SLEEPAWAY CAMP is a fairly standard slasher-flick on the surface it does have some great goofy characters(Angela's mom being the goofiest, who seems like she just escaped from a John Waters film, but also pretty much all the adults at the camp who overact like maniacs!), original kills(beehive in the shitter, curling-iron in the vagina, pervy gross pedophile boiled in water etc.) and of course the super memorable ending which they spoofed on that ROBOT CHICKEN show. This all goes to make this one of the grimy, sleazy classics of this low-brow horror sub-genre as far as I'm concerned. It spawned 5 sequels of varying entertainment value(part IV, consisting mainly of a bunch of footage from previous films, being the worst) and there's supposed to be a remake in the planning stages which, based on almost every other remake in the last 20 years, I'm sure will suck. Stick with the original for a stupid bloody good time!
