Default Sleepaway Camp Series

Just ordered RETURN TO SLEEPAWAY CAMP.
I'll be honest,when I first bought the ABUS disc of the original,I never held much hope.Another Friday The 13th clone I thought.To my pleasant surprise,it was one of the better slasher of the neverending '80's 'slice and dice' production machine.For those that have never seen it (Is there anyone on here? ) ,then you are in for a shock....
For those that have seen all of them,what's your fave?
What's your favourite death scene?
The SLEEPAWAY CAMP discussion starts here......

These are definetly a great slasher series Reaps! Much MUCH better than I thought - although I haven't actually seen the 4th one yet (I've got the trilogy lol) - I'll have to get it, if it's as good as the others.

The first went down in horror history with it's 'nasty surprise' at the climax....any other fans of this series?

I have now seen the sequels since posting the above, and can honestly say that Return to Sleepaway Camp is one of the worst films I've ever seen!

However, I did enjoy the first two sequels. Both were lots of fun, and the franchise itself brings something different and fresh to the often unoriginal slasher genre.

loved the first one, one of the most eff'd up ending reveal's ever, thought the second was pants, not watched the 3rd one yet and heard very bad things about the 4th.

I've only seen the first one myself.

Kinda guessed how it was going to end storywise, but I didn't expect that 'reveal'.
