    I guess I'm in the minority here, but I like the sequels just about as much as the original.

    Easy buys for me.

    Happy Campers was the first of the Sleepaway Camp movies I saw (released as Nightmare Vacation in the UK and cut to bits). I only saw the first movie when released into DVD and the third when I brought the Red Cross set.

    The first sequel has always been a favourite of mine, and the third isn't THAT bad, even though we have to put up with Springsteen in that horrible wig the whole time.

    This is great news. The AB transfers were pretty horrible.

    I'm excited about this. I own the Red Cross DVD edition before it was pulled off the shelves years ago. Can't wait until they come out on Blu-Ray.

    You're not in the minority. The grumpy Guses are quicker on this post button this time. Considering all the campy crap that gets loved up on this board there can't be too much hate for the SC sequels. They're good fun.

    Me too. It's actually one the first slashers I saw. It's one the few horror flicks that I saw back in the VHS days. I didn't see the original until I bought the Survival kit (one my earliest DVD purchases).

    Other than the first film which I watched on blu recently it's just been too long since I saw the sequels. I really don't remember much about either one.

    As I already stated, I love the sequels. LOVE them!

    Even though the sequels are tonally different from the first film, the thing they do carry over is the quotability. In fact, I think the sequels are probably even more quotable than the first film. They're brimming with fun macabre (and surprisingly clever) humor.

    I tend to watch movies like these (plus Chopping Mall, the Slumber Party Massacre movies, etc) over and over and over due to the brief 70 / 80 minute running times. In way, they're kind of my "chicken soup" movies: if I'm feeling sick or having a bad day, they never fail to put a smile on my face. They're just fun.

    All I remember about the third one was feeling bad for Michael J. Pollard :p

    I never said I hated them, I just don't understand those who love them. Especially if you saw the original first and liked it.
