Like I said on the original board, this "movie" does not need to exist. It really didn't need to be made IMO. It was derivitive of so many other much better horror movies, and the CG effects for the deaths were so obvious it wasn't funny at all. And this must have been made and then sat on the shelf for however many years, as the late Isaac Hayes was involved and then this became referred to as his final film. What a shame that is, huh? Anyway, your review of this is what made it at least bearable for me, and making the characters self-aware, especially at the end, was really unneccesary. Uccchh!
This film needed more "rinky-dinky doo-dah."
IMHO, I actually liked this movie the best out of all the "Sleepaway Camp" sequels. :-) I thought it was really cool that they brought a lot of the cast members back, not to mention I thought that Angela's anti-bullying crusade was a really nice plot twist / character development. Plus, Angela did a pretty good job disguising herself as the sheriff! :-)
Oh, & Isaac Hayes! :D Who could forget him? ^_^ I only wish he got more dialogue in this movie...
It would have been a better twist if the "red herring" was the actual killer.
I wonder if he will watch and commentate on Sleepaway Camp berserk.
I wasn't wearing my best disguise in this movie.
Hey, you fooled me. With that disguise, I thought you were a shorter version of Ed Glaser.
"The Burning" is sooooooooooooooooooo much better than this!
"Excuse me, his name is Blow Job."
"That nickname doesn't make any sense. His initials aren't BJ."
Love that joke.
And with this script, so has the phrase "Your ass stinks" lost all its meaning.
Yeah, that line is no "What a shitload of fuck."
To be fair, Alan was your run-of-the-mill dickhead bully. Yeah, he sucks, but he's ultimately harmless, easily beaten by the slightest embarrassment. I bet those little kids he threatens could have made him back off with one solid punch to the nose. The other bullies were worse. A kid who skins frogs? I'm not too upset that he dies, clearly he's going to be a serial killer. Angela's crusade is insane, but hell, it might work; be a bullying asshole at camp, and a vengeful psychobitch with a double-digit body count might rip your face off.
After rewatching the entire film, it's too bad ALL of the characters weren't killed off in horrible ways - though given how terribly CGI'd the "Weed" character was finished off, I'm not sure that would even be entertaining, or satisfying. Sure, Alan is a sack of crap (Brad isn't exaggerating when he says this is the most unlikeable lead since "Triumph of the Will"), and it seems as though the writer couldn't decide whether Alan should just be mentally disturbed, or a through-and-through asshole. So we're stuck with him being a pathetic loser of a bully.
But almost NONE of the campers have any redeeming qualities whatsoever, with the possible exceptions of Petey, and the girl with the glasses and braids. Almost every kid at this camp is an asshole, and almost every adult at this camp is a moron. The writing and acting surely didn't help me to sympathize with ANY of the characters in this sad, final installment of the Sleepaway Camp series.
