Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland Blu-ray Review
“Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland” is more of the same.
Taking place one year after “Sleepaway Camp 2: Unhappy Campers,” “Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland” finds Angela disguising herself as a camper (Maria) attending Camp New Horizons (formerly Camp Rolling Hills). Camp New Horizons isn’t your average camp, however, as it’s some experiment that mixes high class and lower class kids. It really doesn’t matter who attends the camp though as we all know Angela will be killing everyone in sight.
Running a short 76 minutes (without credits), the third installment of the “Sleepaway Camp” franchise is a cheaply made outing that mostly takes place in the woods. Plot wise, there’s very little going on here as the entire film is mostly an excuse for Angela to kill bad campers once again.
As with ‘Unhappy Campers,’ the highlight is actress Pamela Springsteen (Angela). Whether she’s rapping or creatively (and gruesomely) killing someone with a lawnmower, Springsteen seems to relish playing this horror villainess.
Presentation: 1.78:1 1080p. How does it look? For some reason, it’s in worse shape than part 2. Still, it’s an ok transfer.
Audio Track: 2.0 DTS-HD MA Mono. How does it sound? It does the job but don’t expect a great track.
