Film: Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers

Uncle John: Whatever happened to the good kids in the world?
Angela: Oh, don't talk like that, Uncle John. There's lots of good kids. We just have to weed out the bad.

Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers is a 1988 Slasher Movie.

Now fully grown up, Angela has been recently released from the mental institute and is now working as a camp counselor at Camp Rolling Hills. Unfortunately for the campers and other counselors, she is still a complete nutbag (with added bonus of high moral standards) and kills anyone who she deems "a naughty camper".

This film, and its back-to-back shot continuation Teenage Wasteland, venture into more comedic side of things and has more winking approach on its subject, since it would be hard to get much darker than the original.

This film has the examples of:

  • '80s Hair: TC and Rob have mullets.
  • Alpha Bitch: Ally
  • Affably Evil: Angela rarely stops being friendly. It's when she stops being friendly that you need to be really scared.
  • Answer Cut: Ally, complaining about Angela's orders of covering her breasts, says "who's gonna see me anyway?" Cut to two boys with a camera behind the window of the girl's cabin.
  • Asshole Victim: Most of the victims are drug users, peeping toms, or jerks.
  • Ax-Crazy: Angela, as it doesn't take much to send her spiraling into spree killing.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Angela kills everyone (though Molly's fate is mystery).
  • Berserk Button: Angela, as a psychopathic killer has quite a few-'fornicating', illegal drugs, bringing up the fact that she used to be a guy, alcohol, and doing anything mean to Molly. She'd get more in the next movie too.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Angela kills Phoebe, a naughty camper, by hitting her head with a tree log in the opening.
  • Chainsaw Good: Angela confronts Judd, who was planning to scare her dressed as Jason Voorhees, by being dressed as Leatherface and kills him with a chainsaw.
  • Covers Always Lie: The American poster for the film features a girl posing as Angela who isn't Pamela Springsteen.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Four words: DROWNED IN AN OUTHOUSE.
  • Eye Scream: Charlie's and Emilio's bodies are found eyeless.
  • Fainting: Molly faints after she witnesses Angela decapitating her Love Interest Sean.
  • Final Girl: Molly, although the ending leaves her fate ambiguous. The third film reveals that she didn't survive.
  • Ghost Story: At the beginning of movie, the campers tell the story of the massacre at Camp Arrowak from the first film.
  • Genki Girl: Angela has become a very energetic and happy serial spree killer.
  • Haven't You Seen X Before?
    Ally: What are you staring at? Haven't you ever seen a pair of boobs before?
  • Kill 'em All: Angela resorts to killing everyone in Camp Rolling Hills when she thinks that she has killed Molly.
  • Kill It with Fire: Angela barbecues the Schote sisters alive one by one for being pot smokers.
    Angela: Say no to drugs.
  • Knight Templar Big Sister: While she might not really be her sister, Angela acts as this for Molly until the end.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Ally, who is constantly showing off her boobs.
  • Mummies at the Dinner Table: Angela keeps the bodies of her victims in an abandoned cabin, and, seemingly in her less lucid moments, treats them like they're still alive.
  • Nightmare Dreams: Angela has nightmares from the things she caused, indicating some level of guilt. It's also an excuse to resort to Stock Footage.
  • Nice Guy: Sean.
  • Numbered Sequels: With a subtitle.
  • Off with His Head!: After hearing from the bound Sean just how much he knows about her, Angela cuts his head off. She then places his head inside a broken television set ("look who's on TV!").
  • Panty Thief: The boys arrange a pantry raid on the girls' cabin, and they answer with a counter raid to get them back. Angela crashes both instances.
  • Reality Is Unrealistic: When Ally sees blood-covered Angela, she comments that it's cute, but it looks like ketchup.
  • Really Gets Around: Ally.
  • Rule of Pool: Ally tells Rob that if he throws her into the pool, she'll kill him. He puts this threat to the test immediately.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Sincerity Mode: The counselor have set up a run where blindfolded campers have to stick their hands into various pots, which supposedly have gross things in them. Angela of course has the genuine article inside hers.
    Diane: Angela, what's really in there?
    Angela: Dead teenager's brains.
  • Slashed Throat: Angela kills Anthony, who was planning to scare her dressed as Freddy Krueger, by slashing his throat with his own bladed glove.
  • Sliding Scale of Comedy and Horror
  • The Stoner: The Schote sisters, aka "the shit sisters", who are stoned all the time.
  • Straight Edge Evil: Angela does not smoke, drink, or use illegal drugs and if she catches you doing any of those things, look out!
  • This Is a Drill: Angela drives the naughty Mare to the edge of the camp, and kills her with a drill when she refuses to apologize for her bad behaviour. And it goes through the head.
  • Token Minority: Both boy and girl groups include one African-American member.
  • Tongue Trauma: After killing Phoebe by hitting her in the head with a tree log, Angle cuts off her tongue for "having a filthy mouth".
  • Transsexual: Angela has apparently had herself surgically changed into a woman since the events of the first film, where she was merely a Villainous Crossdresser forced to feign femininity by her crazy aunt.
  • Urban Legends: The campers are telling these in the opening.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Angela seems to operate, or rather, think, like this, since most of the people she kills are people she believes to be bad campers.
