The Slumber Party Massacre

Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!

Director: Amy Jones Run Time: 77 min. Format: DCP Rating: R Release Year: 1982

Starring: Michelle Michaels, Robin Stille, Michael Vilella

The only female directed slasher of the 1980s, The Slumber Party Massacre was written by famous feminists Rita Mae Brown, and intended as a sleazy parody of an already sleazy genre. Director Amy Holden Jones thought otherwise, flipping Brown’s cheeky script into straight horror.

The result is a self-aware slasher eager to drill some fresh holes in the genre, all while still delivering on that good ol’ teenage sex and violence. The story is appropriately ridiculous, about a girls’ basketball team hosting a slumber party that’s stalked by an escaped lunatic – and it isn’t long before the long showers, clothes changing and sexy phone calls give way to an ever mounting pile of mangled bodies.
