    The Slumber Party Massacre

    ★★★½

    So... It's taken me the best part of 40 years to see this movie and while not earth shattering, it is quite a fun early 80's slasher pic.

    It's a simple plot. Mental mass murderer escapes from prison and goes around 'penetrating' a group of college (?) girls (and a couple of blokes) with an oversized power drill during the aforementioned 'slumber party'.

    It's all reasonably tame with a few cool kills, and of course boobs and bad decisions are on show from the start.

    Enjoyable schlocky, fun early 80's example of the Slasher genre.

    Worth a look.

    The acting on a whole, was much better than the '89 version, especially the leads. I missed Fred Gwynne though.

The creature doesn't have to try too hard however, as one of the crew in particular is quite good at screwing things up himself. This includes detonating said nuclear missile, accidentally skewering another member of the…
