Five years later, someone in a studio somewhere found out how much money Part I was making in video rentals and order Parts II and III shot at the same time. Lucky for us, the films are much more enjoyable. The dark and confusing aspects of Part I are gone and are replaced with good old-fashioned comedy, nudity, and violence. After the incidents shown in part one, “Angela” is sent away to a mental institution. While there she gets a sex change to become a real girl, and lets just say that she isn’t exactly cured of her murderous ways. None other than Pamela Springsteen plays grown-up Angela. Yes that’s right, Bruce Springsteen’s sister. Unfortunately, Bruce got the talent AND the looks in the family. She returns to the same camp, becomes a counselor there, and kills “bad” people. Angela’s one-liners are pretty funny and the murders are unique. Check out Pamela get in her brother’s territory by playing guitar and singing.
