…you won't be coming home!
Slightly disturbed and painfully shy Angela Baker is sent away to summer camp with her cousin. Not long after Angela's arrival, things start to go horribly wrong for anyone with sinister or less than honorable intentions.

This starts out as a Friday the 13th knockoff, and not a very good one at that. The murders are unoriginal and little boring. The movie plods along, and right when you're thinking, "Well this was a waste of time", it springs it's ending on you, an ending that I didn't see coming and makes the viewer reexamine everything up to this point. It's fantastic, and turns what would have been a run-of-the-mill slasher film into something demented and special.
