Directed by Amy Holden Jones and written by Writer/Activist/Feminist Rita Mae Brown (as a parody of the genre, but filmed as a straightforward horror flick) The Slumber Party Massacre is, at least to me, one of the best 80’s slasher jams—clever as fuck and FILLED with tongue firmly planted in cheek intentional humor, great kills, and a creepy bird-like killer who needs no mask while stalking with his penis power drill.
When I first started branching out from the super well known slasher films of the era that’s where I discovered movies like My Bloody Valentine, The Prowler, The Burning, and The Slumber Party Massacre. I love this flick and it’s absolutely one of my top ten favorite slasher and one of the best movies with "massacre" in the title. I adore the sequel as well, but there’s just something about this movie that I can’t get enough of.
Slasher royalty in my eyes.
