Sleepaway Camp: The Musical

We just learned a musical cabaret version of Sleepaway Camp (1983) has been playing the past few nights in Sacramento, CA! Not much is known besides this nice article from Sacramento Press. The final show plays tonight (tickets). Hopefully more shows are on the way!

Judy Trailer

Here’s the trailer to Jeff’s spinoff short, Judy starring Karen Fields and based off her character from Sleepaway Camp (1983). It looks like the curling iron is fired up and ready to go!

We recently learned of the 5th film hitting DVD in Germany, where it has been given […]

Survivor Trailer Debuts!

Survival Kit Out Of Print?

Some online retailers like Amazon are now listing the Sleepaway Camp Survival Kit as out of print or discontinued by the manufacturer. This couldn’t be further from the truth – Anchor Bay Entertainment confirmed to us that “some stores no longer carry it as space is limited but the set is still very much available.” […]
