Return To Sleepaway Camp (2008)
There's a reason they don't show you more than two seconds at a time in the trailer.
I'm generally a huge fan of terrible horror movies, but this was just a disappointment. Sleepaway Camp 1-3 are all such great movies. They each have a different feeling to them, but all have creative death scenes, clever dialogue, and are generally engaging. Return to Sleepaway Camp has none of those things. It's fun to see a couple of cameos by actors from the original (bleach blonde Ricky!), but overall there's too much poorly-done setup and not enough payoff. I'm only willing to sit through something this bad if it makes up the difference in splatter, and this doesn't. Best just to skip it and re-watch one of the earlier movies instead.
