I, for one and possibly the only one, would have rather seen Felissa Rose play Angela for the sequels more than anybody else. In fact, the first time I saw Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers I was like, “Who the fuck is that playing Angela? That’s not Angela. This movie fucking sucks.” Felissa Rose was one of the aspects of Sleepaway Camp I loved so dearly. So naturally when I rented the sequel I was looking forward to seeing Felissa play Angela, all grown up. But no. Instead I was treated to a third rate actress who didn’t know Angela from Adam and was hideously unattractive to boot. Don’t tell me I am wrong. Because I am completely right.
As far as I’m concerned, the character of Angela belongs to Felissa and only Felissa. I don’t care what her audition was like. I don’t care how she played their version of Angela. The part should have been offered to her without question, without hesitation, and without a fucking audition.
This is how the sequels should have looked. Familiar, uncompromised, and 100% accurate.
