Sleepaway Camp is one of the more unique entries into the slasher genre in the early 1980’s. A fairly standard whodunit has one of the craziest endings in 80’s horror and some very surreal dreamlike sequences that are reminiscent Italian giallo. DON’T SPOIL THE GODDAMN ENDING or Martin will find you and… give you a stern talking to in his most high-pitched and whiny English voice possible.

The crew takes a look at the film from a modern perspective and how it deals with gender and sex in some ways that just don’t really work that well in 2017. This is where having a non-gender binary host who can bring a fresh perspective on Sleepaway Camp in a way that just wasn’t possible back when it came out. Sleepaway Camp is pretty remarkable even now and we hope you enjoy this really interesting look at this minor classic.
