Part of Camp Belcourt

“Dear Mom and Dad, I’ve been at Sleepaway Camp for almost three weeks now and I’m getting very scared…”

At Camp Arawak, the kids will learn all about community, swimming, sports, arts and crafts, cooking, the social order. And murder. They’ll be stronger, wiser, and all the more ready to face an uncertain and deeply cruel world — if they survive. Unleashed into a marketplace that understood summer camp massacre cinema as its own proven subgenre, SLEEPAWAY CAMP pushed things further than any film of its ilk before or since, leading to one of the most unforgettable endings in horror. So pack a swimsuit, bring walking shoes, and say your prayers…

“SLEEPAWAY CAMP keeps defying every possible expectation of how a slasher movie is supposed to behave.” —Scott Tobias, The Dissolve 

“You may argue whether it’s ‘good’, but damn it if SLEEPAWAY CAMP isn’t a super fun, crazy and, most importantly, an incredibly memorable movie. It’s stood the test of time in a surprising and amusing way, and has earned its cult movie credentials.” —Eric Goldman, IGN
