Slumber Party Massacre, The
[] Buy posters from this movie

"Hmm...Wonder what THIS movie is about...."
2 stars

I was 14 and standing at the Horror section with all (both) my buddies. First the title caught my eye - "Slumber Party? Girls get NAKED at slumber parties! Oooh...Massacre! That sounds cool!" Then I saw the box, which featured a guy standing over a bunch of large-breasted women, and he was holding a giant power drill. I was of course too young to grasp the distrubingly phallic symbolism of the picture, but you can rest assured we rented that movie quicker than you can say "vile B-horror exploitation crap".

Before I start throwing around words like 'blatant' and 'sexism', let's look at who made this movie. Hmm...Directed by Amy Jones...Written by Rita Brown. Hey, they're women! I thought only men told young starlets to bare their boobies before sticking giant garden implements into them!

At this point in the review I'd usually mention the cast of the movie. I just did. Trust me. Let's just say that if you recognize an actress in this movie, it's because you're probably related to her.

Ploy synopsis that is most likely longer than the script itself:

Five teenage girls have a slumber party. The 'nice girl' from across the street opts not to come. A few horny guys show up. Then a power-drill wielding lunatic shows up, and he proceeds to stick a drill through everyone in sight. Credits.

As a big fan of the early-80's slasher movies, I can often see the hidden charms of a movie like Slumber Party Massacre. Unfortunately, it's simply too much of a rip-off of other rip-offs! Plus this movie is so cheap, I think my Bar Mitzvah party probably cost more.

Followed by two equally retarded sequels, Slumber Party Massacre is only for those freaky people who love cheap, brainless gore movies. Like me. And for those still interested, YES, there are bare boobies in this movie. But unless you're a really sick individual, it's not exactly a sexy movie.

You're sitting there reading a review for a movie like this? Why? You know from the title alone if you're going to like it! It's about a slumber party! It's got a guy with a giant drill! How much of a critique do you need? If you're a sick puppy and you've never seen it, go nuts. Sane people need not apply.
