    Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers

    Even though the identity of the killer is known right away, they still make this a pretty decent summer camp slasher. Perhaps even more than decent since it features Pamela Springsteen.

It's not only that the "hero" Gary Cooper pleads with the citizens of Hadleyville for "brave" deputies to ostensibly eliminate a potential threat, an ex-convict who the film implies was released from a date with the gallows by "northern" politicians along with three gunmen which include the likes of Lee Van Cleef himself but also Robert J Wilke, but the citizens, in church on Sunday…
