The Slumber Party Massacre

***DISCLAIMER*** The following review is entirely my opinion. If you comment (which I encourage you to do) be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion, that's fine. To each their own. I am just sharing my opinions and perspective. Finally, the reviews are given on a scale of 1-5. 1, of course, being terrible. 2, being not great. 3, being okay. 4, being good and 5, being epic!

The Slumber Party Massacre - 2 out of 5

Okay, the title says it all--I don't need to tell you what this movie is about. And even just reading the title, you know the sole reason this film was made was to show some boobage and some killing. What's hard to believe however is that The Slumber Party Massacre was written by a feminist who was trying to create a satire of the slasher genre but the producers decided to make it a straight film and not a send up.

All the things you would expect from this film is here: Gratuitous nudity that actually becomes laughable in the obviousness of it all (there's a shower scene where the camera is literally panning from girl to girl and making sure that each of their naughty bits are framed dead center in the shot), bad special effects when it comes to the killing, a tacked on killer who, predictably, was an escaped prisoner who decides at random to attack these ladies trying to have a sleepover and a body count that doesn't quite justify the use of the word "massacre." Let's face it, when a slasher film has "massacre" in the title, you're guaranteed to get anything but.

The Slumber Party Massacre is good to watch for only one reason--and it's not the nudity, bub. This movie is fun to watch because it is so lame, it's hilarious. The acting is terrible and the story is so paper-thin, it's hard to NOT make fun of this movie. This is one of those bad slasher films that is great to get a bunch of people together (preferably in a sleepover setting) strip into sexy nighties (even the guys--come on, you got to match the dress code of the film) and laugh your asses off as you wait for the pizza guy to come over with your delivery only to find out he was killed by the bad guy. Actually, that last part won't happen in real life, you'll probably just get your pizza. Probably.
