Back in the heyday of horror franchises, one little slasher classic changed the gore-game entirely - 1988's body count bonanza SLEEPAWAY CAMP II: UNHAPPY CAMPERS.
Long before Wes Craven's masterful SCREAM (1996) turned the slice and dice trend on its head with its sense of pastiche and postmodern references, SLEEPAWAY CAMP II was nodding its noggin towards everything from A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET to THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE with genre in-jokes galore. In this suitably satirical sequel to 1983's gender-bending original flick, the great Pamela Springsteen (sister of Bruce!) headlines as the puritanical Angela Johnson, returning to murderous form as a summer camp counselor who can't wait to drill, drown and destroy an entire backwoods full of frisky teenagers and stuffy colleagues. With some winning eighties mullets, a likeable final girl in the beautiful Renée Estevez (INTRUDER) and guts-to-the-ground gruesome special effects, SLEEPAWAY CAMP II is one of the finest fear follow-ups of all time! Finally released in all of its HD horror, 88 Films is proud to present one of the defining VHS hits of its era.
