Sleepaway Camp may be the next horror series to get rebooted

Oct. 31, 2013by: Alex Maidy

If you are looking for a nice alternative to slasher films like FRIDAY THE 13TH or HALLOWEEN, check out SLEEPAWAY CAMP. The movie follows the same beats as those other franchises, but also has one of the most shocking twist endings from any movie ever made.

After four lackluster sequels, SLEEPAWAY CAMP may be getting a new life thanks to Jeff Katz who has optioned the rights to the film and intends to film a contemporary take on the story. The original film followed a girl named Angela (Felissa Rose) as she heads to camp for the first time. While there she encounters horny teens and bullies who begin to be terrorized by a killer in the woods.

While that may not sound all that unique, SLEEPAWAY CAMP was a fun horror movie that would have been forgettable if not for that twist ending. While the twist may not work if repeated in the new version, it certainly will spook new fans. There is no distributor or any other news lined up for the new SLEEPAWAY CAMP take aside from Katz producing alongside the first film's writer/director Robert Hiltzik.

And, in honor of Halloween, you can watch the entire SLEEPAWAY CAMP film in the embed below.

Nice. But isn't Sleepaway Camp 2 considered a cult classic? I always hear about it over part one.

SC2 is a really fun campy movie. It is very self aware and knows it is kind of making fun of itself and other movies. There is a scene that involves the killer wearing a hockey mask and Freddy Kruger gloves.

It isn't horrible, as long as you are expecting a so bad its good kind of movie.

Great movie

Oh god, remember the curling iron scene? Great kill. I'm game for a remake.

I think the creepiest thing about that screenshot at the top...

is that she isn't screaming. This movie was corny as shit with horrible acting and I loved every minute of it.

The original was awful. No need for a remake.

But how can you top that Twist ending? Old and new audiences will see it miles and miles away.

Honestly

I have never watched this, but I might as well since it's a click away.

I'm gonna guess the twist is she's the killer, or a dude since it mentions dick in one of the comments below.

I don't know

I'm neutral for now because parts 2 and 3 are on Netflix right now and I enjoyed the hell out of them. I'd rather see a true follow-up to part 3 but it automatically wouldn't have that certain 80's charm. I love Pamela Springsteen in 2 and 3 so it wouldn't feel the same without her.

Another classic about to be ruined.

The original is so well known, they would need to change the twist ending. Or they will do what I think they will do and focus the first half on Peter, seeing his dad in bed with another guy, his dad and sister getting killed and ending his screen time with him being forced to live in a pink room. Then we open on the camp, we meet Angela and all PG-13 rated hell breaks loose. The twist being he was forced to get a sex change and is really a girl...

I just don't know how they can pull this

I just don't know how they can pull this off. Odds are it will suck, be pg-13, have a horrible ending that comes nowhere near as good as the original and be filled with horrible actors playing emo and hipster douchbag characters.
