HAPPY HALLOWEEN CAMPERS!!! WOW, sorry for the delay in updates! The reason for that is a good one though, "Angela" herself, Felissa Rose and I have ben working on "GHOULISH" a brand new feature length movie that's gonna shock your camp socks off! Written and Directed by Jeff Hayes and starring Felissa Rose in a lead role as Dr. Ortiz, an empathetic court appointed psychiatrist.
Also in a cool camp coincidence, SLEEPAWAY CAMP III: TEENAGE WASTELAND's Daryl "Riff" Wilcher has a role in this gruesome new movie as the pimp owner of a home escort business. The flick is about a necrophile suffering with violent fantasies of attacking women so he can have their corpses and own their skeletons! His fantasies are on the verge of becoming reality. Can Dr. Ortiz help to stop this before it's too late?
Hayes states, "As I was writing the psychiatrist character, Felissa continually popped into my mind. I kept thinking of her empathetic portrayal of Angela in "Sleepaway Camp" and knew she could play this character inside and out! Then when we shot it and we brought it to life, I was very pleased to see Felissa do exactly what I knew she could do. Her performance is top notch perfect!" The extended Trailer for the movie can be viewed below...
And there will be more details to come on it's Blu Ray release over the next couple of months. Please visit the official GHOULISH website for Updates and info on how to order a copy for yourself and all your skeletal friends!

To further celebrate the releases, we are gonna take you behind the scenes of the Blu Ray bonus features in Atlanta! Co-producer/webmaster Jeff Hayes has assembled a fun group of his Camp New Horizons buddies and even a "sh*t sister" from Camp Rolling Hills to recollect their camp memories for you. As a nice companion to the new documentaries on the new discs, here on the website you can catch up with crazy campers like "Riff" and snotty bigots like "Cindy"... or catch up with "Tony" (who's still dealing with some major PTSD from his nightmare at Camp New Horizions in 1989)! And that's not all. Head on over HERE to join us behind the scenes and catch additional interview footage and lots more.

We hope you have taken notice of the new website design, compliments of Tania Prince, who has made the website mobile-friendly so that you can now enjoy it to the max on your smartphones!
Finally, as an additional note, many of you have asked why Pam Springsteen was not involved on the new Blu-rays. The answer is this: We tried very hard to get her to come onboard and do an interview and commentary for all the fans, but, unfortunately, she didn't want to do it. It's saddening because all the fans wanted her on there more than anything. I'm sure she has her reasons. Some have said that perhaps she had some unresolved bad blood with specific crew from the movies and didn't want to be involved because of that. But instead of dwelling on the negative, let's enjoy everything that did happen because SLEEPAWAY CAMP II and III are being re-released on Blu-ray with fun new features!!!
