Sleepaway Camp Explained

As movies that are famous for being terrible go, the 1983 slasher Sleepaway Camp is in rare company so you it’s only natural that hilarity would ensue when a group of funny people get together to talk about and try to make sense of it.

That’s more or less what happened when the How Did This Get Made podcast tackled the subject back in October 2012. Podcast hosts Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael and Jason Mantzoukas are joined by guest Zack Pearlman in the episode as they struggle mightily even trying to get beyond the cold opening in their breakdown of the film.

You can listen to the entire episode to see what I mean, but you can also check out this four-minute animated clip of a four-minute segment of the episode.
