Camp Manabe has the kinds of obnoxious kids and underpaid staff ripe for a horror film setting, in "RETURN TO SLEEPAWAY CAMP." While the original "SLEEPAWAY CAMP" wasn't a gem, it had some fun "B" movie things going for it, and it was semi-new for its time. Unfortunately, the producers of the film spent no seeable effort in making "RETURN TO SLEEPAWAY CAMP" even decent. While they spent some money getting Vincent Pastore(Sopranos) and Isaac Hayes to appear, the money could've been better spent on an even slightly better script, or better amateur actors. There are no characters to be found that make a viewer care about their outcome. NOT ONE!!!
When a script and actors are bad, all the other elements of the film stand out more, and the cinematography, sets, and everything else make low budget "B" movies of the '80s appear better. "RETURN TO SLEEPAWAY CAMP" is something to intentionally pass over.
MAGNOLIA FILMS has provided the correct 1.85:1 aspect ratio for this release. Colors tend to vary in scene to scene, sometimes more drab than in other scenes, but never vivid. Grain is present in most scenes, but that's in style for the kind of "B" movie atmosphere the film is supposedly shooting for.
MAGNOLIA has provided a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. It has a few surround effects, but most of the mix is low-key and even shrill at times. Dialogue is always intelligible.
A few extras, including brief(but dull)interviews, a photo gallery and song, are included.
