Even Bitches Can Be Over Aged!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


                             For the first time, in quite a while, I watched the 1983 horror classic, "Sleepaway Camp."  Years ago, I made Aunt Martha (Desiree Gould) a Bitch Of The Week.  But, as I watched this film closely, it occurred to me this film has more than its fair share of bitches.  It is a camp (in both senses of that word) bitch fest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                               Now, the winner of this week's Raving Queen Bitch Of The Week Award is Meg, from "Sleepaway Camp," superbly played by Katherine Kamhi.  She was just 19 when she did this film, but, let me tell you, Meg is getting a bit long in the tooth to be a Mean Girl.  Maybe that is why she is such a bitch.  I mean, she does align herself with resident Camper Bitch, Judy, played by Karen Fields, sporting the longest side pony tail in film history!!!!!!!!!!!!

                               Kamhi's performance makes Meg interesting.  It is clear she is slowly evolving, due to maturity, from Mean Girl to Control Freak.  If Meg had hit the workplace, she would have been the perfect Careerist Bitch for the Millennial Age!  And/or the Yuppies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                 But how could she be so tasteless and stupid to sleep with camp owner, Mel!
Ewwwwwwwwwww!  Grossness, plus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                               However, she never got that chance.  Because, like all movie bitches, Meg gets her comeuppance.  Hers is the film's most grisly death; not quite as bad as Kevin Bacon's Jack in the original, 1980 "Friday The 13th," but, certainly on a par with that.

                                Meg is a grade A bitch, which is why she wins this week's Raving Queen Bitch Of The Week Award.  It is a pity the screen writer did not give her some famous lines.  Most of those went to Karen Fields as, Judy.  Meg would not have liked that, at all.  Though she is memorable, in the dinner scene, for saying, of Angela, "If she were any quieter, she would be dead!"

                                Meg is all about Attitude.   If you know one of these types, steer clear.  But not to worry; they will get theirs--just as Meg did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
