In the cannon of great 80s horror films, Sleepaway Camp, is often left at the wayside. This is a damn shame, because whilst it may not be the first film that comes to mind when thinking of the genre, it is certainly one of the most memorable to those that have seen it.
Featuring one of the biggest shock endings in a horror film, much in line with Jason’s mother actually being the killer in the original Friday The 13th, Sleepaway Camp managed to slip under the radar of many horror fans; yet has still managed to spawn several sequels and gain a huge cult following.
This may be the reason behind the talks of a remake. New Line and Fox executive Jeff Katz, who was also behind Freddy Vs Jason, is apparently looking to acquire the rights from original writer and director Robert Hiltzik, producer Michele Tatosian and main star, Felissa Rose, who star as Angela.
I am a huge fan of the original, so I wonder how well this one will turn out if the project ever gets off the ground and whether they will keep the original ending this time around
