Sleepaway Camp comes to high definition

Scream Factory has unveiled details about bringing Robert Hiltzik’s 1983 cult slasher flick Sleepaway Camp to Blu-Ray Disc in May.
After a terrible boating accident killed her family, shy Angela Baker (Felissa Rose) went to live with her eccentric Aunt Martha and her cousin Ricky.
  This summer, Martha decides to send them both to Camp Arawak, a place to enjoy the great outdoors. Shortly after their arrival, a series of bizarre and violent “accidents” begin to claim the lives of various campers. Has a dark secret returned from the camp’s past…or will an unspeakable horror end the Summer season for all?
  From its grisly makeup effects to the truly shocking, and unforgettable, climax, “Sleepaway Camp” is no ordinary slasher film…it’s a cult classic!
The release will feature a 1080p high definition transfer in the film’s original 1.78:1 aspect ratio that has been taken straight form the original camera negative, with a DTS HD Mono audio presentation. Aside from also featuring a brand new cover artwork, the Blu-Ray/DVD combo release will also contain a host of bonus materials, such as a new Commentary Track with actors Felissa Rose (“Angela”) and Jonathan Tiersten (“Ricky”), and a new Commentary Track with writer/director Robert Hiltzik, moderated by SleepawayCampMovies.com webmaster Jeff Hayes.
Also included is the Original Audio Commentary with writer/director Robert Hiltzik and star Felissa Rose, as well as the Featurette ”At the Waterfront After the Social: The Legacy of Sleepaway Camp”, featuring new interviews with Robert Hiltzik, Felissa Rose, Jonathan Tiersten, Paul DeAngelo (“Ronnie”), Karen Fields (“Judy”), Desiree Gould (“Aunt Martha”), Frank Saladino (“Gene”) and make-up FX artist Ed French.
In addition, you will find the Short Film ”Judy” on the release, along with the ”Princess” Music Video by Jonathan Tiersten, Still Gallery and a selection of Trailers & TV Spots.
“Sleepaway Camp” has been scheduled for release on May 27 and can be yours to own for $29.93.
