SPOILER ALERT

 

 

 

 

 

I'm thinking the Stallone movie is Cobra. And yay if it is because it sits on my shelf.

@Lutheshow. A one word Stallone movie? Gotta be "Cobra". I think they were right in the "Judge Dredd" episode, Stallone flicks are the untapped vein of bad movies

Didn't they mention "Cobra" quite a while ago?

 

Anyway, "Sleepaway Camp" is such a bizarre film. While it has overtly gay elements, it's also one of the most UNironically homoerotic films I've ever seen. It's like Top Gun without the planes. It's like "Nightmare on Elm Street 2", minus the unironic homoeroticism.

It will be Cobra since that was one of the Bumbershoot shows along with Road House and Super Mario Bros.

 

I love this movie series and have just recently watched all of them for Halloween. The twist is incredible in this movie and is so out of left field. Why would the aunt be allowed to do such a stupid thing? Plus, the gay dads seemed out of place and like they were just thrown in as well as what seemed to be an incest angle between Angela and Peter after they watched their dads screwing. And nothing sets the mood for a horror movie more than the fat cook trying to molest a quiet girl in the pantry.

 

The sequels should also be talked about on this podcast because they are just as insane for so many reasons. Bruce Springsteen's sister is batshit crazy and the kill scenes are out of this world bonkers.

Sleepaway Camp is BONKERS! I'm not sure I've ever seen a movie struggle so much to find a tone. At first I was starting to think it was actually a satire of bad scary movies but...nope. Nope, it definitely wants to be taken seriously.

 

And am I the only one that thinks that "big boobs" Judie looks EXACTLY like the main character's sister? And "M-E-G" Meg looks exactly like both of THEM? What the heck is happening in this movie? And I'm only half an hour in! Ahhh!

The movie to me comes off as an unintentional spoof of camp slasher movies of the 80s where all the kids are horny or high and the counselors are all dicks or stupid. Yet it takes a real quick turn into disturbing when the more serious deaths occur. The sequels really play on the spoof factor by even having kids dress up as Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees, while Angela kills them while dressed up as Leatherface. Even in the sequels the minor characters all start blending together until they get killed in horrifying fashion.

Yeah, what's insane about it is that the slasher part of it STARTS OUT with an attempted rape! That's where it starts! So there's no way to escalate things after that; the rest of the deaths occur to people that are just sort of mildly mean. It should have built up to the rape, not kick things off with it!

 

I also genuinely feel like this film was made by pedophiles. This isn't a movie with co-ed, freshmen in college teenagers. These are like, freshmen in high school teenagers; the oldest teen in this movie cannot be older than 17, which means that none of the characters would be legally allowed to watch this movie without a parent. And yet all these kids are wearing impossibly short shorts, feeling each other up constantly and cursing like sailors and banging disgustingly old people. I feel like this should have been a cautionary movie for teens, but since teens aren't even technically allowed to see it, it's basically just kiddie porn.

I just started watching this on You Tube. I'm only ten minutes in and I had to stop and get my bearings. My mind is totally blown! What the hell is the deal with that Mom?!?

This movie....

 

Anyways, even if you are scared of scary movies, this movie is so poorly shot that even the deaths that have cool concepts behind them are so poorly executed that they wouldn't scare a 5th grader. The closer you look at it, the less scary it is.

 

Also, this could make the most epic Halloween costume EVER if you incorporate the twist ending into it

Shyeah! Between the short-shorts and half shirts, no teenager's body in this movie is ever more than 8% covered by clothes.

The most mind blowing thing about the mom is that the fact that she talks in weird Lemony Snicket dialogue is never explained at all. Also, that she exists.

Am I insane or did that old guy have literally no reason to suspect that the brother was the killer?

As far as other stuff in the mini episode is concerned, I've always made the argument that you could take any song from the Rocky IV soundtrack, and replace the national anthem with it. It's the least we could do for that film, what with it single-handedly ending the Cold War and all. Please rise for Robert Tepper's "No Easy Way Out"...

I think Uma Thurman modeled her poison Ivy in Batman and Robin off the Mom in this movie.

 

I dont get the contrast in camper ages. some campers look like their 30 while some look like their 10. Maybe it fits in the pedophile motif of this movie.

 

Also how was kids giggling while looking at their gay dad screw recieved in the 80s?

 

Also WTF was up with that rooftop waterballon fight?

Half shirts, rooftop balloon fights, every frame of the mother... I expect these will all be covered on the podcast.

 

I just hope they remember to notice the ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS fake mustache that the cop at the end has on. Clearly he had one earlier in the shoot and shaved it or something before retakes (retakes? ha!) because it's basically a shiny piece of tape with a whisp of short and curlies on it when he walks out of the cabin after finding Meg.

 

Sub-topic: Why would Meg want Cigary McPummel-a-Child to slip her the curling iron anyway?
