Editorial Reviews

In this genre-bending "Glee"-meets-Rocky Horror musical comedy a starry-eyed teenager (Allie MacDonald) wants to follow in her mother's (Minnie Driver) footsteps and become a Broadway diva; but instead, she's stuck working in the kitchen of her step-father's (Meat Loaf Aday) snobby performing arts camp. Determined to change her destiny, she sneaks in to audition for the summer showcase landing the lead role. However, just as rehearsals begin, blood starts to spill, and Camilla finds herself terrorized by a homicidal masked killer.

This is your basic "B" movie slasher whodunit film. The opening makes a claim this is based on a true story and the songs have nor been changed. That is really a joke.

The film starts out seriously as stage star Kylie Swanson (Minnie Driver) gets her throat cut by a man in the Phantom opera mask. She has twins, a boy and girl who we follow ten years later as they are working in the kitchen at a theater school/camp for kids run by Roger (Meat Loaf). The school ends up putting on the same play where Kylie was killed. Her daughter Camilla (Allie MacDonald) tries out for the role that her mother had. As a slasher film, people die as we attempt to guess who is the killer...or not.

The film is also a musical. Kids sing many of their lines with humorous lyrics. The song "We're Here" at the beginning had me laughing out loud. A girl with a lisp (Adrianna Di Liello) sings about her lisp...I normally don't laugh at people with a lisp (except when cable news hires them to be in front of a camera), but I was forced to make an exception. The killer sings metal songs rather well (singing dubbed by Rick Miller) and even sings some of the drum parts "rum dum dum" which again had me laughing.

This is a film which gives the killer a personality, a staple of series slasher films. Kudos to Jerome Sable, writer, song writer, and director for an enjoyable comedy/musical "B" horror film.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.

Odd mixture of Glee and slasher film has a few laughs, some decent gore and a lot of musical numbers. Stage Fright has a fantastic trailer but the movie itself isn't nearly as good. The problem is that Stage Fright wants to be a horror comedy but it isn't funny enough consistently to work as a comedy and there are too few suspense scenes for it to work as a horror film--the horror elements are pretty much concentrated at the beginning and end of the film and mostly ignored in the middle. That leaves the singing and dancing. The songs aren't bad and a couple of the musical sequences are even fairly clever, but the various elements Stage Fright is trying to juggle never really end up meshing all that well. This might be worth a look if the idea of a slasher comedy with musical numbers appeals to you, but in the end Stage Fright is an ambitious failure.

The poster on the trailer preview is what sold me on renting the movie. It is a note-perfect rendition of an 80's style slasher flick movie poster, from the heroine in profile to the disembodied giant knife in the foreground to the goofy tag-line. The movie itself is most definitely inspired by slasher heydey plots. If you've ever seen classic scream queen movies like Prom Night or Terror Train, you know the basic elements: someone important to the Final Girl got killed long ago and now someone else is out for revenge. Which visible member of the cast could it be? However, this is also a genre mash-up, being that this horror movie is also a full-on musical. It doesn't just use musical numbers as breaks from the narrative. The musical numbers are IN the narrative. I can see why some of the horror fans are disappointed, as aside from a cold open the actual horror part of this movie doesn't get underway until over halfway into the runtime. It's musical comedy for most of the first half of the movie. However, once the horror starts it's horror all the way to the end. One other interesting aspect of this being a mash-up and decidedly postmodern is that the Final Girl is considerably more complicated in character motivation than would have been permissible in the eighties. I agree with other reviewers that the heavy metal that sets the killer apart musically from the rest of the show is a surprising treat. Stay for the end credits, there is a hilarious coda written into the end credits music just to reward people who watch 'til the last frame.

This tongue-in-cheek slasher musical is brilliant. Great cast, amusing songs, and the serial killer is rivetting. Plus, it has Meat Loaf. What more could one ask for?

I have been waiting by or a slasher with some gore effects and this meets the criteria! Not only are the effects good but they are pretty plentiful and unique.

The mixing of genres was pretty awesome its like Camp meets Sleepaway Camp with better effects.the ensemble cast was perfect as was the storyline and pace of the action,comedy and suspense.I say if your a slasher fan and don't mind musicals or love both this knocks it out of the park!!

This movie is kinda' a mixed bag for me. It had a lot of potential, but in the end it was just another takeoff of your run-of-the-mill slasher flick. The premise is okay: opening scene of a musical opera (gone badly wrong), and then you shift to this wonderful summer camp for "musical people." The song "I'm Gay--But Not in that Way" just about had me rolling on the floor.

I'm not going to give away anymore of the plot because that wouldn't be fair. I did not dislike this movie; I just thought it could have been so much more. I will say that I would not be surprised if this were rewritten and taken to off-Broadway and finally Broadway. Given a little tweak here and there, this might just make it.

I let you guys decide on this one! Rated R for some bloody violence, language, and partial nudity.
