SLEEPAWAY CAMP II: UNHAPPY CAMPERS (1988)

Fucking lame.

After the simple brilliance of the first film, the SLEEPAWAY CAMP series takes a dookie all over itself with this pathetically unfunny comedy sequel.  It was so unfunny, in fact, that it took me nearly an hour to even realize that it was a comedy!

Taking place a few years after the original massacre, Angela is now fully transferred over to being a woman (thanks to a sex change operation).  Also, two years of shock therapy have left her fully cured.  Could have fooled me though, because she's taking her job as a camp counselor waaaay too seriously.  (Just a side track here for a moment, but wouldn't her parole officer or doctors or whatever probably have a issue with her getting a job as a camp counselor...seeing as she just recently killed around thirty people at another summer camp?)  It seems Angela has a severe problem with people she perceives as sinful.  Smoke weed...that's a murderin'.  Premarital sex...that's a murderin'.  Ask questions about all the other campers that have been gettin' murderin'ed...that's a murderin'.

That sounds promising, but trust me, it's not.  Crap special effects, annoying acting by the annoying main character, weak topless scenes, illogical story, stupid ending, goofy kills.  The only thing I found interesting was the hijinks of the campers, but unfortunately goddamn Angela kept killing everybody right as things were getting fun!

Skip it with a vengeance and never look back.  Watch THE BURNING again instead.
