THE SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE

Originally conceived by activist Rita Mae Brown as a feminist takedown of dime-a-dozen slasher flicks 1982 cult classic The Slumber Party Massacre was famously reworked by its producers to be everything the writer despised. Yet it didn’t stop first-time director Amy Holden Jones from shooting the copious scenes of gratuitous nudity and violence with a subversively over-the-top edge. Despite this satirical bent, the film is still a fun, bloody romp through a night of bad decisions, pranks, frightening cats, cold pizza, and a creepy, Hawaiian shirt-sporting neighbor who just likes to check in…a lot. So join the cliquey mean girls at Trish’s house for a slumber party you’ll never forget, just be sure to not drink too much milk!
