#30 - "Sleepaway Camp" (1983) with Charlie Cotter

#30 -

For about 95% of its runtime, this 80’s slasher flick operates as an oddly bloodless, weirdly sexless, and overall kind of annoying ripoff of "Friday the 13th". Writer and director Robert Hiltzik mines little tension from his story of a youth summer camp besieged by a killer dumping boiling water on pervy camp cooks and stabbing counselors in the shower, "Psycho"-style. It's all very rote and by-the-bloody-books until the film's final minutes, when a last-second twist and some wonky special effects combine into one of the most disturbing images in horror movie history. So grab an extra flashlight and watch out of night snakes as Tim Williams and guest co-host, Charlie Cotter, go to Camp Arawak to discuss all things “Sleepaway Camp” from 1983 on this episode of the 80’s Flick Flashback.
