Personal Quote:

On experience: I believe the true function of age is memory. I'm recording as fast as I can. See more »


Only wrote the first draft of The Slumber Party Massacre (1982) (originally titled "Sleepless Nights") and was not involved in any of the numerous rewrites. She also had no control over the title change. She wrote the screenplay as a parody of the Teen/Bimbo/Slasher genre, but the producers filmed it straight on. See more »
