The 1983 classic slasher film Sleepaway Camp is set to get a franchise reboot. The first film was great, and if you haven't seen it yet, I suggest you give it a go. It has a pretty great ending as far as slasher films go. Unfortunately, over the years there have been a few terrible sequels that you don't need to see.
The reboot is being developed by Fox and New Line executive Jeff Katz, and he's looking to bring the franchise to a new generation of slasher film fans. I'm personally not a big fan of the slasher horror genre as a don't really find it that scary. I like horror movies that mess with your head.
According to Deadline, Katz optioned remake rights from the original movie’s rights holders, which include writer and director Robert Hiltzik, producer Michele Tatosian, and actress Felissa Rose, who starred in the 1983 pic as Angela, "the bullied teen protagonist whose summer turns into a bloodbath when a killer begins offing campers."
The report goes on to say that the movie will be have a "modern setting with a new film series that echoes its legacy and the psychosexual elements that made the first pic such a memorable cult favorite."
I have no idea what to expect from this reboot, but I'll be very surprised if it actually ends up being a decent movie.
