If you're a fan of 1980s slasher film, you surely remember the utter nightmare fuel that was the end of Sleepaway Camp. Now it appears as if a whole new generation may get the opportunity to experience that in theaters, as Deadline reports that Jeff Katz has optioned the rights to the 1983 original and is developing a reboot.
The original film was set apart from most slashers of the era by its twist ending, and then was followed by two sequels that were more horror-comedy in tone. A fourth film eventually found its way to DVD while 2008 saw original writer/director Robert Hiltzik revisited the franchise with the STV Return to Sleepaway Camp.
