E29: Analyzing Sleepaway Camp with Drag Queen Janessa Jaye Champagne, Also Why She Doesn’t Hate Remakes & Why She Loves a Slasher With a Good StoryEp. 29: Analyzing Sleepaway Camp with Drag Queen J
In this episode Allison discussed in depth why Janessa Jaye loves the 1983 cult classic slasher movie Sleepaway Camp. She told us why she doesn’t like the sequels, how the character of Angela has influenced her own show and persona today, and why she would love to see a prequel or a remake filmed today. Of course we talked about horror in general too. You’ll never guess which version of Black Christmas is her favorite, why she thinks people love the horror genre, and what it was like to see Get Out in a theatre full of white people in North Dakota.
