Written and directed by Robert Hiltzik and starring Felissa Rose, Jonathan Tiersten and Desiree Gould, SLEEPAWAY CAMP takes place at Camp Arawak. A mysterious slasher is stalking the teenage campers, who die in horribly inventive ways (courtesy of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE makeup FX artist Ed French). Kent Byron Armstrong, in his book SLASHER FILMS: AN INTERNATIONAL FILMOGRAPHY, called SLEEPAWAY CAMP “a good slasher, with a charming assortment of characters and innovative murder sequences.” In the seminal slasher history GOING TO PIECES, author Adam Rockoff praised SLEEPAWAY CAMP’s “realistic depiction of teenagers, hilarious over-the-top performances and legendary ending.”
