    If there's a "Basic Bitch" of slasher movies, it must be The Slumber Party Massacre. Beyond the cliched tropes, it spends most of its time building tension towards jump scares and fake-outs, and the camera's point of view is lecherous male gaze at its worst - I've rarely seen nudity this gratuitous. And still, that "fakey" first half, despite featuring a bunch of girls that are almost indistinguishable from one another (I was often confused and I don't have face blindness), is still at least the most amusing part of the flick. Once the attacks begin, it's hard to get too excited by the generic serial killer in his jean jacket. They had to give him a big drill as a weapon just to make him more interesting, but they don't do anything too interesting with the gag. At the end of the day, The Slumber Party Massacre doesn't bring anything original to the table, EXCEPT set us up for a weirdo sequel, and that may be its greatest virtue... 2 years 1 month ago
