I did not dislike this movie; I just thought it could have been so much more.
Donald C. Hagy
The whole cast does a great job, which is a large part of what makes this movie so successful.
Matthew Scott Baker
This is a film which gives the killer a personality, a staple of series slasher films.

Very old school 80s slasher feel with a campy musical feel. Not for all tastes, but a lot of fun

Really liked the movie, it delivers a bunch of fantastic songs and bloody splatter.
Of course its filled with clichés but every old-school teenie-splatter is full of them.

I thought this movie was absolutely hilarious and most entertaining... I rate it five stars for its originality... With its dark humor and campy-ism (not a real word), this film has definitely surpassed any hesitation I may have had before the opening... Definitely a must-see!

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!!

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.

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.

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.
