Found this little gem today at Goodwill on VHS. They don't always have the best selection; most of the time they only have a few copies of Aladdin and Die Hard 2. This time I was pretty lucky and actually picked up 3 flicks: This movie, Jawbreaker, and Trick of Treat (Which looks like a carbon copy of Slumber Party Massacre 2, at least from the cover).
One, this is an extremely weird horror movie. Two, this movie has all sorts of re-watch value. Three, this movie fits right along with Behind the Mask. Both movies have a ton of horror movie references (for example this movie has two police officers, Voorheis and Keruger). The movie is littered with terrible one liners and various dance sequences. Oh wait, did I not mention, the movie is a musical. Everyone in the movie is in one way or another fixed into a musical sequence. Unfortunately the soundtrack for this gem was never released and the songs are extremely hard to come by.
The plot? Was there a plot? Not really, the surviving sister from the first movie is hunted by her own mind/dreams... How can I more accurately describe this? An Andrew Dice Clay impersonator that plays Meatloaf-ish tunes and chases girls in panties around a town at night. What is his preferred weapon of choice? Well that would be his electric guitar with a drill for a head.
The movie delivers the blood and guts and doesn't skip a beat until the weird ending. That seems to be the only thing holding it down in my mind. If you were looking for a movie to watch whilst playing beer pong this is definitely it. The movie is fun but it is horrible. The acting, singing, storyline, and production value are far below par.
- This movie is a sequel to Slumber Party Massacre, and it is followed by: Slumber Party Massacre 3: Cheerleader Massacre, Cheerleader Massacre 2, and loosely Sorority House Massacre 1 - 3.
- Crystal Bernard is in this, you may remember her as Joe's wife from Wings.
- This movie was released on VHS and Laserdisk
