Overacting Scene Of The Day: Artie And The Boiling Water From ‘Sleepaway Camp’ (1983)

In 1983’s Sleepaway Camp, Artie the head cook got what he deserved after trying to unsuccessfully molest Angela.  A big old pot of scalding hot water tumbles on top of him, burning him from limb to limb.  And yes, as I said – he deserved it.  However, what we as the audience didn’t deserve was the 20 second long overacting from Artie after it happened.  Granted, I’m sure it hurt.  And I’m sure I would have screamed too.  But this is low-budget cinema we’re talking about here, and Artie went all out for that coveted gold statue that he never had a chance to receive.  Click below and behold the work of a true thespian, ladies and gentlemen:
