Peaches has put together such an amazing night of entertainment, you might never want to go home again.
Peaches herself had this to say about why she loves Sleepaway Camp so much… (**spoilers ahead**)
“Someone might label this movie the greatest homophobic masterpiece of all time, but I must disagree. Could it be called the greatest, unsung, tranny-killer movie? Yes. Many think the LGBT community should reject tranny-killer movies like Dressed to Kill, Psycho, and Silence of the Lambs. But I’m for re-appropriating them. You can’t deny that they’re all (including Sleepaway Camp) highly entertaining movies. I choose to strip Sleepaway Camp of its -phobic powers by embracing the flat-out outrageousness of it. A boy, traumatized by witnessing his father’s gay affair, is forced to live with his crazy aunt who dresses him up like, and raises him as, a little girl. Years later, the ordeal of both has turned him/her into a killer bent on revenge against those who are cruel and judgmental. Don’t mess with the weirdoes; they’ll get you where and when you least expect it.”
Here’s the original trailer so you’ll start to get an idea of what you’re in for…
