I'm not really going to review the films. Usually these reviews are meant to be about the product itself, so here goes.
The SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE is a somewhat average fun low budget satire slasher.
SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE II heads more to the comedic theme. It was a so bad it's good film, filled with insanity and bad acting.
SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE III goes straight to serious horror. The story was actually the best of the three, but some of the acting and silliness brought it down, to being better than II, but not as fun as the original.
Now for the DVD set. You get 2 discs. One with The SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE, and the other with the two sequels.
The first two films are presented in their theatrical releases, however I get the impression that SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE II was originally shot in full screen. It still looks good in widescreen, and doesn't seem to lose much from the screen. All they've done really is crop the top and bottom to make it look widescreen. The third film is presented in its original full screen format.
There are decent extras where you get:
. An all new three part documentary called Sleepless Nights: Revisiting The Slumber Party Massacres. That talks about all three films.
. An audio commentary by the cast and crew for each film.
. A still gallery.
. Theatrical trailers for the three films.
Disk 1 - The SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE - Contains the actual film. The three part documentary. A still gallery. The trailers for all three films.Read more ›
The plot is a slightly tweaked and thinly veiled rip off of 'Halloween', but this movie doesn't take itself anywhere near as seriously as John Carpenter's classic shocker, and this is perhaps its saving grace.
Like all good horror movies of the period, 'The Slumber Party Massacre' aims to provide us with two things; mild titillation though its utterly shameless use of female nudity and cheap thrills though its corny murder moments. While the latter is hardly on a par with many slashers, it is a bit of fun. Some of the murders are quite inventive, if a little sparing on the gore.
As far as the nudity goes, the premise dictates a fairly abundant use of boobs and thighs. While some may consider this sexist, it is important to note that the director is actually a woman. Stick that in your feminist pipe and choke on it!
Happilly, not only is the film graced with some deliciously and flagrantly gratuitous breast exposure, but the owners of said breasts are uniformly gorgeous. Movies like 'The Mutilator' (which contained not just ugly but fully-clothed ugly women) could learn a lot from this masterpiece of schlock!
This is not to everyone's taste but, if you've read this far with a smile on your face, I'm pretty sure it's the film for you.
The movie contains several noteworthy scenes such as the "peeper" scene which carried over into the two sequels. This one also had the memorable shower scene (pass the soap please). For you youngsters, this was an era when 18 year old teens could legally buy alcohol. The Jim Jones and Kool-Aid reference was also of the era. Note the telephone color co-ordination of red and turquoise, all in the same model. BTW, the correct way to ease drop on an extension phone is to disconnect the receiver, unscrew the mouth piece and remove the diaphragm, reconnect the receiver then listen.
II) Courtney survived the first one and has bad dreams going into the second one. She is in an all girl band who go away for the weekend. They have a pillow fight and are spied upon by boys. Only one girl goes topless for the lone nude scene. The killer in this one is a greaser from Courtney's dream. He has more character than the killer in the first film, but this movie makes less sense and doesn't have the "fun" aspect of the first one.
III) This movie is the final installment as it starts out with beach volleyball.Read more ›
