Sleepaway Camp (1983)

Got another review for ya today. From 1983, here's Sleepaway Camp.

There's really not a whole lot I can say about this movie. By and large it's just your typical 1980s slasher flick; just another ripoff in the sea of ripoffs that emerged in the wake of the original Friday the 13th. What separates this flick from its ilk, however, is its truly odd shock ending. I won't go into details here so as to avoid spoiling it, suffice it to say that it had even me, the stereotypical jaded horror geek, a little bit creeped out. It's worth sitting through the whole movie at least once to see it. The payoff really is worth it.

The film's famous ending was parodied on an episode of Cartoon Network's Robot Chicken.
