Alright, all you drive-in deviants and slasher film fanatics, grab your popcorn and pull up a rusty camp chair, ’cause we’re diving deep into the murky waters of Camp Arawak to talk about a gal who’s been terrifying camp counselors since the ’80s: Felissa Rose. Born in 1969 in the Big Apple, Felissa burst onto the horror scene with a twist that left us all slack-jawed and checking each other’s short shorts for nasty surprises.
Now, most of you probably remember Felissa from “Sleepaway Camp,” where she played the shy and slightly off-kilter Angela. And by “slightly off-kilter,” I mean she had a penchant for turning summer camp into a bloodbath. But hey, we’ve all had our awkward phases, right?
But here’s the thing: Felissa ain’t just a one-hit horror wonder. This scream queen has been slashing her way through the B-movie circuit for decades, popping up in everything from zombie flicks to haunted house romps. And let me tell ya, she brings that same “I might be sweet, but I also might get a little stabby with you” vibe to every role.
So, the next time you’re up late, watching some horror flick where the body count’s rising and the logic’s plummeting, and you spot that familiar face with the mischievous glint in her eye, raise your Lonestar to Felissa Rose – the B-movie badass who’s been serving up scares and laughs in equal measure.
Drive-In Totals: 50+ films, a gazillion screams, one lacerum member, and a legacy that’s still making campers think twice about that summer getaway.
