      KerryWhite's S Rating: 6/10. 62/100 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/29/23 Full Review Lenin P Another decent addition to the franchise, just not as good as the first two. Angela is back, yet again. The way she made it to the camp, was rather unique. No story whatsoever this time around. But we aren't watching this for the plot. All of the actors played roles that were so stereotypical at time. None of them were were really likable either, so I'm glad they died. One of them used especially strong language in one scene. I'm not a politically correct kind of person and even this made me raise my eyebrows. She called one black dude the n word multiple times. I was like whoa. I noticed that even Angela seemed kind of low energy in this version. From what I know, I've read that part 2 and 3 were shot back to back. Maybe she was just worn out from all the shooting? Despite the lack of energy, story, and likability of any of the characters, this movie still had some awesome kills. I have five kills that stood out to me. Yes, you read right five. I liked it when she put a firecracker on a a guys face, and it blew up. They made it seem so graphic afterwards, even though I doubt it can cause all that damage. I liked it when she decapitated the girls head with an Ax. A decapitation using any instrument is always good. I loved the one where she blindfolded a girl, and took her to a flag pole. She hoisted her up by her jeans and then just dropped her. It was awesome. My favorite kill in the movie was when she tied a guy up to a tree. Using her Jeep and rope, she ripped the guys arms off. It was sick. This next kill I like because it was cleverly executed. She threw a cassette tape into the tent of the black guy obsessed with rap. On the tape, Angela was rapping about how she was about to kill him. She then proceeded to trap him inside the tent, and then spiked his head in. Everything this movie lacks can be overlooked. With all those fun kills, I don't mind sacrificing a well thought out story. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who saw the first two movies for sure. This gets a LennyReviewz Score of: 7/10 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Liam D An insignificantly worst sequel with bland writing, wooden acting, boring kills, forgettable characters and Angela at her most annoying Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/06/22 Full Review ryker d Not perfect but that's how every movie is no movie is truly perfect I like it for everything that it's not it's not very good it's not very interesting and when you try and compare it to the original it looks bad every time but so what if you watch the movie then you can understand why people love it it's pretty cheesy and reeks of 90s slashers but who cares if you love the movie then that's good if you hate the movie then that's also good we all have our own opinion and this is just mine Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review R P Still again, I had fun with this movie even though it wasn't the best in this series. The humor coming from Angela kind of makes the series. I also found that it was interesting that the previous movie and Sleepaway Camp 3 Teenage Wasteland both have siblings of well known actors in them.

      Nick Schager Lessons of Darkness Both aimless and, more problematically, humorless. Rated: C- Jul 21, 2005 Full Review Cody Leach Cody Leach (YouTube) Sleepaway Camp 3 feels like the crew begrudgingly stuck around from the 2nd film for an overtime shift. The results are tired, uninspired, and lazy. Not even Springsteen's charm can save this one. Rated: 1.5/5 Aug 27, 2022 Full Review David Keyes Cinemaphile.org If it's laughs you are after, however unintentional, this movie provides all the precious morsels. Starting with the idea that anyone felt the need to make it. Rated: 1/4 Feb 20, 2019 Full Review Heather Wixson Daily Dead Sleepaway Camp III is a fantastic follow-up to the previous sequel, and even if all the jokes don't necessarily stick the landing in the end, Pamela Springsteen is once again a superstar in this underappreciated sequel. Rated: 3/5 Jan 6, 2016 Full Review Anton Bitel Projected Figures Time for the tentpoles to come down (even if there are another two sequels). Jun 18, 2013 Full Review Tim Brayton Antagony & Ecstasy The direct-to-video sequel to a direct-to-video sequel; ah, the '80s! Rated: 3/10 Sep 9, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews
