When Trish (Michele Michaels) decides to invite her high school girls basketball teammates over for a slumber party, she has no idea the night is going to end with an unexpected guest (an escaped mental patient and his portable power drill) crashing the party in the cult classic, The Slumber Party Massacre.
Makes its high-def debut courtesy of Scream Factory, the newly crowned patron saint of horror movies. The 1080p transfer created from the original camera negative looks very good; this is a low-budget movie that's over 30 years old, but the Blu-ray is easily the best it has ever looked --DVD Verdict

The story (at the time) was pretty unique and not one too much, the story was also pretty good. The blood and gore wasn't overdone and still pretty good. There were alot of nods to Halloween and Friday The 13th which I really liked. The "bimbo" actresses added nothing to the movie, but being able to watch them die one-by-one was very fulfilling.
Since the killer was shown right away, it took alot of the power from this film. I believe it would have worked much better if they kept him a mystery until the ending, this way anyone could have been a suspect. Bad acting comes with the territory of these sort of films, and aside from a few people this is no different. The method of killing was a bit "stupid" so to speak, a drill is a great weapon, but the one used was obviously a pwer drill that was never plugged in. Lastly, the killer was not intimidating at all and at times really lame.
Like most bad movies in this genre being very fun to watch for the cheese factor, this was no different. The movie is in no ways bad, and actually somewhat good. There were some jaw-dropping kills, nudity and blood. What else can a slasher-genre fan want? A worthwhile plot? --It has one too.
By no means a gem of the genre, but the entire "Massacre" series is definitely worth a watch, the series includes Slumber Party Massacre 2 and 3, Sorority House Massacre 1 and 2 and Cheerleader Massacre.
What drew me to this film is of course the cover art or one sheet that was provided to cinema's back when it came out. It is nearly one of the best of it's kind.
Enjoy this film. Don't expect it to be the best horror film of it's generation but it is a good time and remember that it is considered to be a horror classic.
The Slumber Party Massacre franchise was followed by two sequels.
