Slumber Party Massacre

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

Director: Amy Holden Jones Run Time: 77 min. Release Year: 1982

Amy Holden Jones turned down an editing job on E.T. to direct this movie! She made the right choice.

Written as a commentary on the inherent sexism of slashers by feminist icon Rita Mae Brown — but filmed completely straight — THE SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE is a terrific inside joke that also delivers the goods as a skid row photocopy of HALLOWEEN, complete with a killer who’s figuratively castrated when the tip of his power drill is hacked off.

With its stylized photography, plot points involving pizza and an endlessly cool homemade synth score, THE SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE is a drop-dead masterpiece of subversive trash-horror.
