Slumber Party Massacre (1982) Review:
On so many levels, Slumber Party Massacre is as basic a horror movie as you can possibly make. The story is ultra-simple, with a killer on the loose killing teens for no reason whatsoever. The killer himself is just a dude, without mask or anything special, apart from his infamous power driller of course. The special effects are really basic, often made of bare red paint and a few fake wounds. Even the music is ultra-simple, reminding of an 8-bit video game.
Yet, strangely enough, this does not impair the movie from being watchable, and even strangely entertaining. I’m not saying this because of the huge amount of nudity in it. The movie is really cheesy, as most 80’s slasher is, but the overall simplicity gives to Slumber Party Massacre a very particular atmosphere tainted with realism. I guess seeing the simple face of a killer make it more credible than having him wear a mask all the time.
What is liked best about Slumber Party Massacre were the camera effects, they are so amazing that the movie should be a compulsory watch for any wannabe horror directors. Of course, due to its lack of scenario, the film cannot possibly get a huge rating…but it is fun, and sometimes it is all that count.
