Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers (1988) / Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland (1989)
She's Back To Slash Last Year's Record!
Welcome back for the second episode of The Liberal Dead's Sleepaway Camp Retrospective Podcast Series! In this episode, Jeff (@Jeff_FOTD) and James (@DrJimmyTerror) check into Camp Rolling Hills and Camp New Horizons to visit Angela and discuss Director Michael A. Simpson's cult classics, Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers and Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland!
Why are we covering two movies in the same podcast? Are these films worthy follow-ups to the original? Does Michael A. Simpson really deserve all the credit for creating the first self-aware Horror-Comedy? How deep is James' obsession with Valerie Hartman and her lady parts? Will Chris from Exorcast finally stop sending death threats to us now that this episode has been released? More importantly, does James sing the "Happy Camper" song for us?
Find the answers to these burning questions here - along with talk of the film's history and origins, its critical reception, and its place in pop culture and the franchise. As always, the guys give you their unfiltered opinions... Oh, and expect some reflection on the series as a whole in there, too...If you are looking to watch the film, or any of the others in the series, you can help support the show by Purchasing or Renting it from Amazon.
