Fear Friday - The Slumber Party Massacre
Tagline - Close your eyes for a second... and sleep forever
The Ultimate Driller Killer Thriller
Directed by Amy Holden Jones (Maid to Order and Rich Man's Wife) and released on November 12, 1982 (Rated R). A group of high school girls have a slumber party when one of the girl's parents go out of town. Unfortunately for them it's the same day an escaped murderer is on the loose in their neighborhood. Hmmmm... I wonder what's going to happen?
This movie is exactly what you'd expect from it. Lots of half naked young women being chased by a looney tune with a power drill. A really big power drill! If you like 80's styled slasher films this one will not disappoint. It's silly, cheesy and a fun watch.
Take a look at the original trailer (spoilers and lots of boobies!)...
Some trivia about the movie...
1. Rita Mae Brown wrote a screenplay for a parody of teen/slasher flicks and titled it "Sleepless Nights". However, when she submitted it to the producers, they filmed it as if it weren't a parody and retitled it "Slumber Party Massacre". As a result, the movie displays a lot more humor, both intended and unintended, than others of this genre.
2. The original first draft of the script was called "Don't Open The Door".
3. Michael Villella deliberately avoided talking to the other cast members during the shooting of the picture.
4. Michael Villella read the book "Helter Skelter" in order to research the role of Russ Thorn.
5. The entire score was done on a Casio synthesizer.
6. The big conclusion in the backyard with the swimming pool was added to the movie in a reshoot.
