ABOUT THE FILM
Sleepaway Camp is a 1983 slasher horror film written and directed by Robert Hiltzik. Angela is a shy girl who is sent to summer camp with her cousin. Dealing with awful pre-teens set wild in the woods is bad enough. But soon, mysterious and deadly accidents begin picking off campers one by one! This now cult classic, low-budget slasher featuring very-real Jersey teen kids running around upstate New York woods is best experienced with no preparation. Just let it wash over you and we'll discuss after!
ABOUT THE SERIES, IT CAME FROM THE CLOSET
Hosted by OMEN and inspired by the collection of essays, It Came From the Closet: Queer Reflections on Horror , the series focuses on horror movies through a queer lens. From October until March 2024, we'll be screening and discussing a new film and companion essay on the 13th of every month. More about the series here.
