Hmmm...you know what would make an amazing thing they could have add to any horror flick: kill people at random...innocent and guilty alike, which would give Angela much more of a serious psychological issue about her or his sexual identity, so it would make sense Angela would kill the Pedophile Chef and even Paul and Judy at once when she found them together, so that she would add more to her random killing spree. So that way no one would know who's next. Hell even kill Johnny Bench-press over there so she would seem more of a monster. But one could sympathize with. Kinda like Buffalo Bill but instead of skinning fat chicks, Angela is insecure about herself or himself.
This is no joke: as a person with a weight problem, whenever I need something to suppress my appetite, I remember the sound effect made when the guys face hits the other guys ass in this film. Beat that, Weight Watchers!
Also, I notice that your copy of this film was taken from what seems to be a 35 mm print (note the cue dot on the upper right hand corner of the screen as the pedo-cook is writhing in pain).
"The Burning" is so much better than this.
Did you know there's a spin-off film called Judy where it turns out the mean girl who got a curling iron shoved up her snatch survived her injuries and went on to be a killer herself?
Well, he probably did since he referenced it in the ending summary.
You can tell this review came out before Scream Factory graced us with their excellent Collector's Edition Blu-ray. Regardless of the video quality this was still one of Brad's best reviews as the Cinema Snob, and probably the only good Sleepaway Camp reviews I've seen. Then again reviewers like Good Bad Flicks and Shitcase Cinema are too retarded to know how to do reviews.
Oh, hey now, what's wrong with good bad flicks? Sure he likes Super Mario Bros. the Movie and probably has polio because of it, but he sticks up for the underdog! He's like Hoffa but not dead (though we're not technically sure of where his body is...)
James Rolfe recently reviewed this movie one this year's Cinemassacre's Monster Madness.
Who cares if James Rolfe reviewed it. Besides his review was shit. It didn't go into detail about the movie, Snob at least went into detail. Leave James out of Brad's videos, you fanboy.
I'm just going to say it: "Shut up Meg!"
Personally this is my personal favourite Cinema Snob episode you ever made, Brad. I'm really happy you went ahead and reviewed all of the sequels afterwards.
Well that ending twist is...interesting. I would say they should've known better, but it was the '80s, LGBT people (especially transgender people) weren't exactly regarded well.
And here I thought a mainstream(-ish) horror movie couldn't fuck up a trans woman character more than Silence of the Lambs did.
Well, the character isn't the average trans person. As I recall, it wasn't the boy's choice to be Angela that was forced on him by the mother which would warp anyone's mind. The killings are all just fallout from that.
What happened to the link? Only one I can find now is the shortened, League of Super Critics version. :-\
One of my favourite Snob episodes, partly because of my own nostalgia. In high school, a whole group of us crowded around for our traditional post-homecoming-dance-horror-movie-athon and ended up putting this on. Brad's jawdrop at the end when the twist is revealed is basically the exact face we all made.
Some of the older archived videos of 2009 were brought over from the youtube account before thecinemasnob.com was created, so please forgive the lesser video quality of such as some did not transfer well.
