The film opens up with a character named Alan. He is a bit of a retard and the film uses this as not a plot for sympathy but a tool to make you hate this character, at least I did. Alan is a sniveling little shit full of inane Pre-school insults. His constant bullying has acquired him to be bullied thus sparking a voracious food chain of Big-medium-small. The arsenal of dialogue Alan carries is retarded, plain and simple. I'd hate to use such a generic description, but I do mean "retarded" in the most offensive way possible. After Alan more-or-less calls people doo-doo heads, the killings begin.
Several of the cast members are rejoining the story from the previous films after a long hiatus. Hibernation is a deadly force to reckon with. This sequel appears to disregard the two middle films and just initiates what Hiltzik believes are clever kills. Clever being filling someones stomach with gasoline and lighting them on fire. Or giving someone a deep-fryer swirlie. The lot of these kills can be found in any Friday the 13th continuation. Completely devoid of imagination.
As opposed to a Listening copy. Smart move, Mr. Hiltzik
During research of the film, I discovered an iMDB thread of a certain poster claiming this to be the best movie ever; a "masterpiece". With a bit of free time, I viewed the profile and found this to be said users only post to the defunct account. This is a similar tactic used by independent horror film directors to promote their film by creating a counterfeit opinion. Return to Sleepaway Camp is a travesty of horror. It struggles to capture that 80s pathos. The only thing Hiltzik managed to create with this unnecessary sequel was a visual surgery on the senses. Robert Hiltzik, I have a message for you. "Your ass stinks."
