Monstervision's Joe Bob Briggs Looks At

Sleepaway Camp 2: Unhappy Campers (1988)

(From Joe Bob's Ultimate B Movie Guide)

We return to the ghosts of Camp Arawak for the continuing story of Angela, who killed 30 happy campers in part one but has done her two years in the psycho ward, had a lobotomy and a sex-change operation, and is now back in action working with impressionable young children at Camp Rolling Hills. Her goal in life is to make sure they don't say filthy words or rip off their blouses except when it's necessary to the plot. When they don't comply, she's forced to crush their skulls with an oak branch and drag their bodies into an abandoned cabin so they can have "Happy Camper" singalongs. We're talking some serious Beanie Weenie Fu.
