After a horrible boating accident kills her family, Angela, a shy and sullen young girl, moves in with her eccentric aunt Martha, alongside her protective cousin Ricky.

"This film just screams 80s goodness! In my humble opinion, Angela from the Sleep Away Camp series is one of the best and most shocking slashers ever made. We all have our own camp memories. What better way to spend a campfire night at than at Sleep Away Camp." James Cullen Bressack
"There are great films and then there are magical films, glorious oddities that pop up sui generis out of nowhere. Sleepaway Camp falls squarely into the latter category." Scott Tobias
