Three girls join a sorority house. Amidst the initiation ceremonies, hazings and the partying someone or something is killing the freshers.

Opening with two false starts and a pop video for White Sister's "you're no fool", Killer Party is an entertaining mix of campus shenanigans, sorority house slasher and supernatural possession , plus a big dollop of Scooby Doo. The practical jokes are way too elaborate for anyone to carry off in the real world and the killer can't be who it eventually turns out to be,but somehow it all makes sense.
Sherry Willis Birch, who's only other credit is Final Exam, makes for a quirky unexpected final girl and director, William "Funeral Home" Fruet packs his film with a lot of charm and some genuine style. The scenes with the killer, clad in an antique diving suite, are nicely handled and the possession scenes are also well done.There's sterling support from Paul Bartel, amongst others, and the theme tune "these are the days of our life" is again memorable

Killer Party was trimmed of gore when it was released in 1986 and the Warner Brothers Archive DVD is that version. The picture quality is really good . Sadly there are no extras, but it is region free.

4.0 out of 5 stars Party Til You Drop Dead 23 Nov 2011
By K. Sommerfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Where do you start with a movie like "Killer Party"? Well we have three "gorgeous" babes going through hell night to join a sorority. A whole bunch of horny guys dump bees in the sorority's back yard as a joke. Where, of course, a bunch of girls are naked in the outside hot tub during said bee attack. Their house mother gets talked into letting the girls have a hazing party in a forbidden frat house. When she goes there to make sure the place is safe, she first stops at a handy grave in the front yard to explain to `Allan' why she's letting the girls use the house (who `Allan' is has not yet been explained). She tells him that it was all an accident and it's time for him to just let it go. Allan doesn't answer her, since he's dead. Or is he? As she is nailing down a loose banister on the stairway, a mysterious figure appears before her, brandishing what looks like a tire iron, she turns, asks "What are you doing here?" and this person answers her by striking her dead.

Back at the sorority, the three pledges go through a hazing (and there are some very nice set pieces here, watch for `em), and are accepted into the sorority. One of the pledges is really good at special effects and she is told that the only reason that she was accepted was that skill. IN fact they want her to stage a traditional April Fools party that the sorority is hosting for a fraternity. Twenty-two years ago, the boy in the grave ("Allan") was killed at one of those parties by what everyone carefully refers to as an "accident." The girls talk about strange disappearances while they begin to set up the old house for the party, and more strange things happen. Will the youngsters figure out what's going on and who is doing it before they are all horribly killed?

"Killer Party" is grade-A 80's cheese and I loved every minute of it. From the campy opening music video number to the pink hair and the big glasses, this film is a loving tribute to everything that was wrong about the 80's. It's just plain fun and a hell of a good time. That's not everything here works. The film goes from slasher to supernatural possession thriller about 2/3's of the way through and it makes for an interesting ending that doesn't seem to fit the rest of the film. Nonetheless, you could do a lot worse than this little slice of sleaze Heaven. The slasher gods shine down nicely on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Horror Movie 10 April 2012
By Vance - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Killer Party is hard for me to put into words. It's not just a movie for me,
it's almost a way of life as silly as that sounds. Scenes from this movie have invaded
my dreams and nightmares ever since I've seen it. Whether it be the dreamlike innocent
room the teenagers are making out in, when you know just outside of that room evil is
awaiting...From the buildings, the score and the soundtrack, and to the actors & everything
in between are the things that make this so special and a cut above all of the rest of the
80's horror films of It's time.

Killer Party manages to be funny, cheesy, suspenseful and terrifying throughout the entire
film, which is only something you can say about a few select movies. Either a movie is dead serious
or it's just so cheesy that it's not scary whatsoever, however Killer Party defies all the odds.
The beginning of the movie starts out in a church/funeral home and you quickly realize not everything
is as it seems. you soon find out that this is a movie within a movie. What I mean is that the
movie suddenly turns to a whole new cast of characters that are watching what we the audience were just
watching on a drive in screen. What happens next is pure and 100 percent 80's as zombies and demon like
people start chasing this girl through the drive in while an extreme 80's rock band performs a song. And as
soon as you start thinking this might be the real movie you are watching, we get fooled once again as we are
now introduced to the real characters of the film, as one of the main characters in the movie is now watching
the scene we just watched on her television. It's such a genius intro, and is just one of the many reasons
that makes Killer Party such a unique horror experience.

We are now introduced to three college girls that are all rushing to join a sorority. A lot of
comedy gags ensue for the next few scenes in the film that will have you being reminded of such 80's
comedy classics such as Porky's, but make no mistake this is a horror film, and one hell of a scary
one at that. Before you know it people start getting picked off in an 80's slasher film style, not really
showing a lot of gore, but I honestly think that it works in favor for the movie because this is not
a gorefest style movie, nor do movies need to be ultra gory to actually be creepy and scary. As I said
before the score of this film is top notch, and just adds to the overall creepy and mysterious factor
that this film has. Another horror movie I can think of that had equally as awesome of a score is the 80's
classic Witchboard.

Now, lets get on to the planning and arriving of the party, since this movie is called Killer Party aferall.
The main setting for the film soon becomes an old abandoned fraternity house where 30 years earlier a pledge
was killed due to hazing. Supposedly his spirit has been known to haunt the property ever since, and there
where even reports of people being missing. Soon you realize that this may not just be a slasher movie, but
might have some other elements such as demonic possession. Hints of possession are shown from time to time,
as one of the stars of the film Jennifer starts acting a little strange and seems to be taken over by an
entity from one scene to the next. Is it really possession? that's for you t find out. The Fraternity/Party
House is also another character of the movie because it's just so damn creepy looking. From the faded olive
green walls, to the cob webbed creaky steps, and not to mention the huge dark basement that holds a guillotine
are all very atmospheric and add so much to the building suspense and terrifying nature of this movie.
Once the sorority and fraternity party gets going, we are introduced to a killer staking around the house
in an old style seaman's outfit, accompanied by a pitchfork. More paranormal things start happening around the house,
but is it really paranormal or are people in the movie setting up gags? that's another thing that I am leaving
you to find out for yourself. What happens at the end is nothing short of terrifying and gives me chills every
single time I watch it. For me to give away what happens would be unfair.

There will never be another horror movie that I hold so dear to my heart that is for sure. It's almost hard
to even explain why completely. It's like trying to describe a nightmare in detail. It's just not possible. All
I know is that I am not the only one that feels this way about this underrated cult classic, as I have run into and
befriended some great people on here that feel the exact same way about this movie as I do. I don't know many other
movies that have had an impact on a group of people as much as this movie has. A great friend of mine that runs the official
Killerpartythemovie.com can probably put it into better words as to why this film is so special, but just know that
this movie is one of a kind and there will never be another one like it. Now go order a copy of Killer Party and
spread the word! Another plus to this edition is that it is near bluray quality! Spaulding069 out! =)

4.0 out of 5 stars 80's Gem 11 Dec 2007
By Horror Inside - Published on Amazon.com
I just bought a barebones dvd of Killer Party. It's as perfect as I remembered it as a seven year old.
It has earned its place among the very coolest of 80's Horror.

I love the ending...

4.0 out of 5 stars Are You A Goat? 10 Jun 2012
By Barry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a little kid growing up during the slasher boom of the 80s, I was exposed to a lot of movies, even though I was not of age. Gotta love my dad for letting me see them! As an adult, I have wanted to track down the ones I remember and want to get, or those other films that just slipped by me back in the day. "Killer Party" was certainly one of the movies I remember seeing on Tv when I was little. Back in a time when something like this would be shown regularly on HBO or something like that. Sadly, the movie was rather obscure and didn't get a DVD release until recently. I had not seen this movie since the 80s. So, after all these years, has the movie held up to my expectations? First thing's first....

"Killer Party" opens like no other horror/slasher movie ever. It's a good 9 minutes before the actual movie begins. The opening 9 minutes pull the rug out from under the viewer not once, but twice! These two opening segments did a fun job of jumping on the cliches of the time. Gotcha scares, drive-ins, and hair rock music videos routinely seen on MTV. It is an absolute blast. The actual movie tells the tale of three young women pledging to a sorority on campus. They have to go through the usual pledge/hazing shenanigans. Unfortunately, a party is to be held in an abandoned frat house, where a pledge was accidentally killed years before. It appears this pledge does not rest in peace, and the partygoers are about to find out the hard way.

Not only is the beginning of the movie all over the place, so is the different tones the rest of the movie goes through. What seems like a standard, killer in mask slasher movie, then delves into becoming something along the supernatural genre. No bother. It's fun from the start. "Killer Party" is a horror movie with a sense of humor. Not only the humor that is in the movie in itself, but the fact that the film knows what kind of movie it is, and has fun with it. The movie just has a sense of fun all around it. Great locations, 80s notalgia in your face, and just enough eerie atmosphere here and there. It does slow down in some spots, but it isn't a concern. However, for a slasher/horror movie, the death scenes are relatively tame, and not all of them do we see for long or, in some cases, at all. No matter. The movie was written as a fun horror movie, and that's what we get. A horror movie with humor, standard slasher conventions, a taste of the supernatural, a dash of college hazing hi-jinks, and it's own music video! "Killer Party" really does seem to be the "Everything and the kitchen sink" horror movie.

I was thrilled that Warner Bros. decided to give this movie a release on DVD. I enjoyed this movie from start to finish. It may not be a classic to everyone, but it is a good time.
