Plot Summary:
"Angela is back, in the form of an angry inner-city camper on the hunt for blood. Camp New Horizons, on the recycled grounds of the former murders, intends to pair high class teens with underclass counterparts. Angela, however, has a different plan. Will it be door number one, number two, or number three?"

The second film in this franchise had actually been really enjoyable. So enjoyable that the film makers decided to stay on and make a third film back to back (much like the Scary Movie crew decided to do recently). Unfortunately, third time around it's dumb unfunny trash!!

Starting quite well with Angela splattering a young girl across a street with an HGV, Angela steals the girl's identity (it's lucky that she was so easily able to find a wig that exactly matches the deceased girl's hair!!) and returns to camp to start anew. Unfortunately, the kids are badly behaved!!

The jokes were awful here, especially the scene where Angela and two guys are fishing and she reels in a hockey mask. 'What day is it?' Angela asks, 'Saturday' says camper number 1, 'Yeah, the 14th' replies camper number 2. You will notice that I don't know the characters names, that's because they are thinly written imitations of stereotypes.

The deaths which were so inventive in the second film, were also poorly thought out here, as Angela mainly whacks people with a tree branch.

I expected much more from this because I know that director Michael Simpson and Pamela Springsteen are capable of much more than they were able to demonstrate here!!

OVERALL SUMMARY
The highlight of this film was the flashback to Angela singing The Happy Camper song!! She should do a duet with Bruce.
