    It's no fault with Amazon UK. The USPS just often sucks with accepting overseas shipments and then actually getting them processed into the mail stream. I even had a package (registered, with tracking) from Russia earlier this year that took nearly 3 months to arrive.

    Wow, had no idea that young Peter (or young Angela, however you want to look at it) was played by the older brother of "The Situation" from MTV's Jersey Shore.

    I just got my copy and was surprised how bright that scene initially is. It's funny because it then switches to the intended darkened look. I wish Scream would have fixed that. You know Synapse would have. :D

    Just watched the blu ray. It looks great! My only gripes are, yes, that way-too-bright shot in the doorway (sort of annoying...) and that the framing of the DVD is more to my liking (this appeared to have more head room).

    But it's so great to have this in such good quality now. And uncut.

    Finally got my Amazon order for SLEEPAWAY CAMP. Haven't had a chance to watch the film yet, but watched the doc last night. It was nice to see a bunch of people back, like Aunt Martha and Judy, and Felissa predictably carries the show and does it with infectious energy. I was a little underwhelmed by the interview quality and construction of the entire doc in general - it was obviously piecemeal from what looks like some Code Red interviews and then some newly shot for this release (Felissa, Jonathan Tiersten). The effects guy, Ed French, was great though, some nice stories and I always thought his work was never really appreciated the way many of his contemporaries' work was from the time. French has done a tone of flicks, I've pretty much never read about him on the internet though in all my years searching horror. Check it. I would have liked to have seen more coverage about SLEEPAWAY's legacy and what makes it such a enduring cult film to this day. They really gloss over the most interesting parts of the film's history in this. A big step down compared to the usual Red Shirt Pictures treatment we've come to expect from SCREAM. Still, very happy to have this finally uncut on a beautifully put together Blu-ray package.

    Shame the camp got leveled years ago. Would be amazing to visit today or to at least see some kind of retrospective about it, or a Horror's Hallowed Grounds or something.

    YO, ANGELA, WHY YOU SO FUCKED UP!?

    WTF! I had Sleepaway Camp on backorder at Blowitoutahere.com and now it's not even listed on their website. Now it'll probably get canceled:mad: Even Deepdiscount says it's unvailable to order so I guess i'm screwed and I'm not paying Amazon's prices.:fuck:

    Sleepaway Camp must have sold really well if it's sold out everywhere. Turned out to be a good bet for Shout Factory.

    I assume you've entered the coordinates 43.210190, -73.458560 into Google maps?

    I did a blog post about that a long time ago.

    Also did one for the sequels.

    Thanks for the links and info, guys. Cool to see what's left from above. Do you know where the ball diamond from the film was? I can't really see any base markings or anything anymore...I'm guessing it's on the east side of that road where there's a bit of a pie shaped cutout in the trees and where a white block (possible bleachers) resides today?

    Yeah, that seems like a pretty glaring mistake. The initial shot is significantly brighter than the following shot, and worse, you can REALLY tell it's Ricky in that first shot. I normally don't get too bent out of shape about exposure in a transfer as long as it is close, but in a case like this, where it's a whodunnit, that's a pretty major continuity detail that is destroyed.

    That's some PREDATOR-esque DNR, Scream Factory. Ugly color doesn't help the cause, either.
