Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage WastelandAngela is back and this time she’s at the camp Camp New Horizons, which is Camp Rolling Hills with a new name.  It has been a year since Angela slaughtered all those campers and now the camp has been reopened and this time it’s a camp for troubled teens.  They have set up this camp and they call it “An Experiment in Sharing.”  With this camp getting started one of the camp counselors is Barney Whitmore, who’s son was one of the ones killed last year.  Now with all the campers getting ready for their camping trip Angela decides to get back into what she does best.

The movie opens with us being introduced to a girl named Maria.  She’s getting ready to catch the bus to go to camp.  As she’s walking to the bus stop, she gets run over by a garbage truck.  After she’s run over, the driver steps out and it’s none other than Angela herself.  After Angela kills her she catches the bus and pretends to be Maria.  When they arrive at camp there are some reporters there who want to get a glimpse at this years campers.  As they mention the murders of last year the counselor gets angry because she says that it’s bad publicity.  Well, soon the reporter asks Angela for some cocaine and Angela decides to make some for her, only that it would kill her as soon as she takes it.  Soon the campers split off into three groups and as they go camping, Angela kills off her group, then moves around killing off each camper.

Angela is back to being a camper in this one, much like she was in the original.  Only this time she has a different attitude.  In the original she was shy and quiet, in the sequel she was very outgoing.  In this one she portrays herself as being someone who is very angry and hateful.  This doesn’t really seem like a summer camp like in the first two, well they are only supposed to be there for a few days though.  But it’s just them going into the woods and setting up tents.  The acting was a bit better in this one than in the second, but the second was cheesy and that made it enjoyable.  This one seemed to try and make itself more like the original, but I just don’t think it worked.  The characters in this one aren’t really developed and there is no suspense.  It’s just Angela killing them in many ways.  Even when she kills someone it seems like it’s missing something.  There were scenes, especially at the end, where it would be too dark and we couldn’t see what people were screaming about.  Anyway, if you’re a fan of the Sleepaway Camp films, you might want to check this one out.  I would say that it’s worth a rental, even though it’s nothing special.  I just enjoyed the first two more.  I give this one a 4 out of 10.
