Blood, gore, boobs, bimbos, tacky music, red herrings...what more could a horror buff ask for?
2 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let's be honest, no one was exactly screaming for another sequel to the little known 1982 slasher flick 'The Slumber Party Massacre.' It's not like it left a lot of unanswered questions or had an open ending that could have been spun off in many directions. What kept the first sequel from being an awful waste of time is how different in tone and attitude it is, but again there was no need for another. However, that didn't stop producer Roger Corman and his company Concorde, now New Concorde, from doing one. But fortunately, it didn't turn out to be such a bad move for III, more of a standalone sequel, is a decent time-waster too.

Pros: Quick-paced. While it was no surprise who the killers were in I & II, this one is a whodunit. Good acting for this type of movie. A decent amount of gore. Plenty of cheese and dopey humor. A corny horror score and some bad 90s rock music to add to the fun. Those who didn't care for II will be happy to find out this one is more like the original. I won't give away the ending, but I will say it will make you cheer.

Cons: Believe it or not the plot is even more threadbare than those in the other two. Clichés can found left and right. Not that the direction in either of it's predecessors was really impressive, but here it's pretty bland and point-and-shoot. The killer is a bit annoying at times, which keeps he/she from being really scary.

Final thoughts: Unlike the next "sequel" 'Cheerleader Massacre,' this one doesn't disappoint if you liked the first two. It's not one of the best of it's kind, but you could certainly do worse when picking a movie at the video store. It's a shame that filmmaker Jason Paul Cullum's script for a part IV never saw the light of day because I personally wouldn't mind seeing one more "slumber party massacre."

My rating: 3/5
