Today we take a look at a cult genre fave in Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers.  The tone of this sequel is far different from that of its predecessor, but that is surely not a bad thing here.  SCII is to not disappoint.

It's been a few years since the events of the first movie and another summer camp nearby is in the midst of their season.  One night, gathered around the campfire, the campers tell ghost stories/urban legends to try to scare one another -- when one of them tells the story of Angela Baker and Camp Arawak.  Turns out the real Angela is a lot closer than any of them suspect.

My thoughts:
To start, I seen the Sleepaway Camp movies in chronological order, so when I got to part two, I was a little shocked at the complete change in tone and feel.  But that didn't discourage me.  I thoroughly enjoyed Unhappy Campers.  In fact, it may even be my favorite in the franchise.  Angela Baker is not one to be taken for granted.
