Sleepaway Camp IV DVD Coming Soon

Exactly one year ago today Fangoria published an article unleashing all the details of The Survivor Project, which I was quoted in. At that the stage the film had just finished editing. So what the heck has been happening with it this past year? Puting together the DVD itself, that’s what! Not having the aid of a company to do all that stuff, it has taken more than a little time… but now that is basically done.

At one point the special features list kept swelling and pushing the completion further into the future, not to mention would have necessitated compression of the movie data to fit everything in. For that reason and another – to let the completed movie stand on its own two feet – it was decided to strip back the bells and whistles. Anything intended for the DVD will end up (or already is) on the website. We could spend forever making it bigger and better but when it comes down to it, it has taken almost 20 years of work to get to this momentous point of release.

Many details of the release and format are being kept under wraps until everything is ready but I can give you an idea of what extras to expect: uncut 1992 production footage, John Altyn music videos, trailer, and a still gallery featuring things like archival publicity materials, on-set photos, and then & now location photos. The release date for Sleepaway Camp IV: The Survivor has always been “when it’s done” and that has not changed. So all I can say is keep your eyes peeled here!

  1. i dont understand. i thought this movie was done and released in my sleepaway box set a million years ago. has someting been changed or altered to it? all l remember is that it stunk, and there was nothing to it. lt was like a 15 minute film, right?

    1. For me this is a relatively easy quoitsen, but has a pretty complex answer. The specialty I have actually looked forward to working with is OB/GYN. I find that the ability of a woman’s body to produce a child, endure the amount of abuse it takes during a pregnancy, and the amount of pain endured during delivery is amazing. The joy of being able to be present as life enters the world is truly one of the greatest moments in life. To me that would be the best possible option. I also would love working in the operating room with a surgeon. I have experienced the OR quite a few times, and have been on both sides of the table. I have to say I would love to work with any surgeon in the OR except for Orthopedics. The reason behind that is the surgery’s are pretty brutal when it comes to the skeletal system. Having been in the OR with an Orthopedic surgeon and seeing the use of the saws, hammers and other heavy equipment in order to perform the surgery just sends chills up my spine. I know that type of surgery is not for me. I think my favorite surgeries have to be that of the abdominal cavity. The specialties that I would least like to work for are few, and for simple reasons. Pediatrics is not a specialty for me since I have four children of my own. My Aunt is a neonatal nurse practitioner and I followed her in high school and saw the good, the bad, and the ugly so I can honestly say I could not emotionally handle that type of position. Podiatry is also an area I could not see myself working. The reason behind this is pretty silly, but here goes, I very much dislike other peoples feet especially if they are not well kept. I know in the medical field you will encounter feet on a daily basis, but I could not mainly work with feet on an everyday basis. My last specialty is Orthopedics for the reasons I noted above about the barbaric nature of the surgeries and treatments for the musculoskeletal system. Its just not for me.

  2. neither of the angelas had boobs though right. l liked when the chinese chick said, “do you need a can opener to open that bra or girdle or whatever it was that looked ridiculous…

  3. The bonus disc in the Sleepaway Camp boxset only contained a few minutes of random footage. It wasn’t the whole movie. The webmaster here ^ found the rest of the movie and edited it together and such. Read the stuff he’s been writing about it. It sounds cool!

  4. Look I’ve been a fan of this series since its realise in the late 80s(sleepawaycamp 2). I remember being so happy to learn of part three renting VHS, and loved it, so when the box set with part 4 came out I was just as excited….. to my dismay no pam springsteen… shit no movie at all… so i forget… then we get the return to sleepaway camp.. and heard CKY would do the soundtrack, i was happy till i saw it… terrible, so i always check back to your site(thanks and I do love Sleepawaycampfilms.com). But I think the real fans want springsteen back and hope than the guy that did part 2 and 3 finishes his legacy and gives us another movie gem….

    1. HA, I love the little line at the end. I think it would be in bad taste to say to annyoe on gods green earth that they like the Hoff. Fabulous review. Don’t you just hate it when for whatever reason you just dont gel with the main character of a story. Drives me insane, because I have no real desire to follow them on their journey, and its so much worse when the character doesnt seem to care much too. I love how well you write reviews that could come across as very unsavoury but you always manage to convey them in a way that still sheds light on the story. Kudos

  5. I’ve been told the footage for THE SURVIVOR is either just random footage or a complete short. I read this film was being thrown together as a clip film, similar to PUPPET MASTEr: THE LEGACY, which I have to admit makes me curious. But when or if the DVD comes out I wonder if it’s an online only thing, or if for example Wal-mart will carry it.

    1. that he would need to take some x-rays. The x-ray room was fascinating to me. The room was dim and the x-ray eepmuiqnt really had me curious. Right then, I thought this is what I wanted to do when I grow up. So here I am now pursuing the career that intrigued me in my youth.The physician that I would not want to work for would be a surgeon. It seems to me that this would be a more intense and serious workplace. I’m not saying that being a Radiologist isn’t a serious job, but a Surgeon has a more complicated position depending on the situation. The people that you would have to deal with, I would imagine would not always be in good spirits especially if the surgery is high risk or life threatening. It would be hard for me to see and interact with patients day to day and then to know that they did not make it through a surgery or the outcome did not turn out the way they had hoped. This would weigh heavy on my mind and.

  6. I see a lot of interesting posts on your website. You have

    1. Since there is so many fields of slcieapties that I have a choice of, I still really can’t choose one. So I am going base on my personal experiences. My original goal back in high school and maybe even before that, was to work in a Neonatal ICU! I had a brother that passed before he had his first birthday from heart complications, and that year I spent a lot of time at hospitals with my parents. My goal the first couple of years was to work with babies just like him. That was until I had my own children, I would of still loved to have worked in that career field but the heart ache I would most likely endure when one of those babies did not make it home. I could not have handled!On to more positive experiences, I have worked with the elderly and Geriatrics interests me very much. Being surrounded with people that have lived a fulfilled life is so much more rewarding. Even though at times it is the ending stages of their lives, and it is sad when someone does pass. It’s less of a heartache to know that most of the time they are ready to move on. They are still very dependent on you and when you are able to help them with their needs that’s the most rewarding of all, plus you form a special relationship with the patients and their families.
