Slumber Party Massacre (2021, D: Esterhazy) -- remake



A new contemporary twist-filled reimagining of the 1982 slasher cult classic just in time for Halloween. A slumber party turns into a bloodbath, as a psychotic serial killer wielding a power drill disrupts the fun.
From the director of The Banana Splits Movie!

This was produced by Shout Studios, since they own the rights to the Roger Corman library. It will air on SYFY.

It premiered the other night at Fantastic Fest. A couple of reviews:

I not super attached to the original like I was to the original Black Christmas. I assumed they were gonna give it the 2020 treatment, but based on that bloody disgusting review I might actually check this out.
It’s gotta be better than BC. That was one of if not the worst modern day horror remakes.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean, but Slumber Party Massacre was a mild satire of slasher films, full of phallic imagery and featuring a killer with impotence/sexual frustrations. It poked fun at a lot of slasher clichés including the casual objectification of women in them. If any horror remake deserves an empowering update for female characters, it's this one. The fact that this remake is also written and directed by women is promising. I like that the promo included the "I love you" line from the original.

Yeah that’s my point. The original already had all that stuff. These days subtlety isn’t a thing. So based on that review I (wrongly) assumed that this would be more of the same.

I think I’ve only watched the original once. It was okay, but nothing overly memorable if you ask me. It seemed like a fun concept, but I seem to remember thinking it was kind of boring. Never saw the sequels.

Part II is great after a few whiskies. The band stuff is amusing. That song got stuck in my head for a bit.

This film seemingly came out of nowhere and ended up being a pleasant surprise.

It has a few small issues but was an absolute blast to watch.

I agree. I was expecting a train wreck. And this was actually a lot of fun.

I didn't hate it. The approach was a decent way to tackle the original material.

This wasn't bad. AMC showed both the original and this one back to back a couple of times in October.
