Sleepaway Camp (1983)

A five-year-old watches her father and brother get killed in a boating accident (or does she?). Eight years later she is sent away to a summer camp with a suddenly high fatality rate.

The plot borrows elements of Friday the 13th, but this slasher pic is superior in every way. There isn't really any suspense, but the story is fun and compelling, the visuals have a sense of style, the killings are creative, and the movie ends with a properly shocking image.

Karen Fields and Desiree Gould go over the top in their roles as, respectively, a slut and a nutty aunt, but aside from them, the acting isn't bad at all.

The high camp factor is icing on the cake.
