When her parents go away for a few days, Trish (Michelle Michaels) decides it's the perfect time to kick it old school with a good old-fashioned slumber party with the girls. No one seems to know there's a killer in their midst - an escaped prisoner who murdered five people back in 1959. After twenty-plus years of not killing, Russ Thorn (Michael Villella) eagerly starts killing people in broad daylight (although no one notices) long before the slumber party even begins. Truth be told, it isn't much of a party - only four girls are there, and they barely get a chance to start drinking and smoking weed before the fun begins - although they do find time to titillate a couple of high school boys by changing clothes in front of an open window. Then the killer shows up, at which point all the girls turn into stereotypical slasher victims. Meanwhile, the hot new girl in town, Valerie (Robin Stille) - who lives next door but wasn't invited because some of the girls are jealous of her--and her annoying younger sister begin to wonder what is going on at the party. Needless to say, they eventually find out.Read more ›
Trish Devereaux invites her basketball teammates over her house for a slumber party one evening. The party is crashed by Neil and Jeff, two horny 17-year-olds, However, little does she know, mass murderer Russ Thorn has escaped from a mental institution and has decided to crash her party as well...with his oversized "crotch-like" drill (You know what I mean!). Like what a total creep! For sure! (Sorry, I had to use my 80s lingo). Well, their only hope for getting out alive is by going across the street to laughing stock, teammate Valarie's house. (She denied the invite when she heard some of the girls teasing her) The thing is, each of them is starting to die quickly and if they don't get out alive, their weekend is going to be a total bummer. (Here I go again).
Needless to say, SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE is a fantastic film. The idea of using a portable drill is great and the fact that the killer actually talks is a breath of fresh air from the "quiet, stalking, killing" murderer. Filled with enough humor to fill a whole 'nother movie, SPM rocks. Pure and simple, it rocks. Valarie may be a joke to some, but it's her who has to save the girls....

But you can imagine my surprise when, halfway through, this thing actually turned out to be scary! Yes, the whole atmosphere of the film was done quite nicely, and it worked well enough to make me a bit uneasy. While watching it, my cat was sitting in the window, and he suddenly jumped back and ran out of the room - so I went over and somewhat cautiously closed the window and locked the door! LOL.
Overall, if you're looking for a nice slasher flick with all the things teenage boys most enjoy, or maybe you just want to relive those memories of drive-ins in the early '80s, you'll probably be quite satisfied with this little gem.
Yeah, that's about it for plot. But what part of what makes Slumber Party Massacre enjoyable schlock is the fact that it's written and directed by women, feminists no less. And the movie they've crafted is really no different than anything a male director would have come up with. Most of the female cast are damsels in distress (there are a few exceptions), there's gratuitous nudity, and typical genre cliches that rely mostly on characters acting extremely stupid.
But that's expected in a slasher, and as long as the movie's entertaining and not that poorly made, than it's passable, which is the case here. Heck, there are even a few suspenseful moments here and there, amazingly enough. I can only imagine that the attempted scares would have probably been more effective if the killer were given a mask of some sort (seeing his face dampens any effect of terror) or if he used a weapon other than a lousy drill... The stalk and slash scenes are nothing spectacular. Halloween or even Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter this is not. But they're reasonably effective for what they are, thanks to tons of blood and gore and some good jump-in-your-seat shocks. The movie runs at a pretty fast pace, and at 76 minutes, runs quick without being too big a waste of time. Slumber Party Massacre isn't a good movie, but I know I sure had a good time.
