I stopped involving the cast and crew of Sleepaway Camp on my site, focusing only on the movie itself. However, this photo spoke to me in ways I could never imagine. I am reminded of so much and have started to mourn the absolute loss of possibility to what would be considered the real return to Sleepaway Camp for me, personally and as a fan.
This photo not only represents the obvious but so much more that I can’t even express here. Nevertheless, for the average fan, this is indeed a wonderful photo. Joined by some wonderful quotes by another Sleepaway Camp aficionado like myself.
Sleepaway Camp is really a state of mind, an attitude. It’s in you or it’s not. You are not defined by the physical – is what Angela taught us.
You know, fuck new SC sequels. I have honestly given up caring. Not out of spite, but rather the empowerment that comes when you realize any sequel made outside of the 80’s/early 90’s will not truly be Sleepaway Camp no matter who directs it or is in it. If SC were god, apply the understanding that god is everywhere. I’ve found Sleepaway Camp more present in other 80s movies than in the 2003 film called RTSC. Sleepaway Camp is all around us, and its fun and complexity only stops when we stop looking.
