THE BURNING, 1981, Park Circus/Miramax, 91 min. Dir. Tony Maylam. When a prank played on a summer camp groundskeeper turns into a fiery accident, the campfire legend of Cropsy is born - but this is no tall tale to accompany smores. A disfigured and charred Cropsy savages canoes full of hapless campers with a pair of shears as flesh is sliced, fingers are chopped and the creek bank is stained blood-red. Featuring grotesque special effects by legend Tom Savini, a rocking synth score by Rick Wakeman of Yes fame, a pre-Seinfeld Jason Alexander and a young Holly Hunter. SLEEPAWAY CAMP, 1983, ???, 84 min. Dir. Robert Hiltzik. Carrying the baggage of a childhood tragedy, shy Angela Baker is sent to summer camp with her cousin. But when a series of bizarre and grisly accidents befalls various campers and staff, it becomes apparent that theres a murderer lurking among the cabins. Hormones rage and the body count rises, all of which coalesces into one of the most jaw-dropping shock endings of all time. Print provided by the American Genre Film Archive. TWISTED NIGHTMARE, 1987, 95 min. Dir. Paul Hunt. A group of teenagers hits the summertime jackpot as they win a trip to their childhood camp. But reliving their youth isn’t on the agenda as a killer stalks and murders them one by one. Now the survivors have to figure out who or what is after them before they end up trading in their sleeping bags for body bags. Print provided by Ant Timpson and the American Genre Film Archive.
