Slumber Party Massacre(1982) Synopsis
An eighteen-year-old high school girl is left at home by her parents and she decides to have a slumber party. There is friction between some of the invited guests and the new girl, who is better at basketball than they, so the new girl decides to stay at home (which is conveniently across the street from the host’s house).
Meanwhile, a murderer of five people with a propensity for power tools has escaped and is at large, and eventually makes his way to the party, where the guests begin experiencing an attrition problem, with only the new girl to help them .
Slumber Party Massacre(1982) Review
Slumber Party Massacre is an early 80′s by the numbers cheesy slasher movie. Lots of un-necessary naked woman and a maniac wielding an over sized drill to butcher his victims.
Feminist film director Amy Jones and feminist novelist Rita Mae Brown collaborated to create a movie that is not only fun but had a wicked sense of humour. The pizza delivery guys death scene for example and then the girl eats the pizza that he leaves. I like the fact that we don’t know a great deal about the killer himself other that he is an escaped mental patient on the loose, i would have liked if they had waited later on in the movie to reveal what he looked like though.
Fans of the genre should get a kick out of the fun gore-fest which is Slumber Party Massacre. The franchise as a whole is very under rated and the sequel is another guilty pleasure of mine with the weird dancing killer who uses a guitar combined with a massive drill on the end to kill his victims. Not before doing a 10 minute dance of course.
