Typical slasher, but very very fun!
20 November 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE III (1990)

starring: Keely Christian, Brandi Burkett, Maria Ford, Maria Claire, Hope Marie Carlton, David Lawrence, David Kriegel, Brittain Frye, Lulu Wilson, Garon Grigsby, M.K. Harris, David Greenlee.

plot: Jackie (Keely Christian) decides to invite her girlfriends over for a slumber party before she has to move away with her parents. Jackie is made a little uneasy when a strange man stares at her and her friends at the beach and her weird neighbor, Morgan (M.K. Harris) looks around the house suspiciously. By night, the girls are having fun just when the guys show up. But just when the guys show up, a drill-wielding masked psychopath stalks and kills them one by one. When the killer is revealed, the remaining survivors ban together to try and make it out of the house alive!

the good: Yes, this is not very original, it borrows a killer motive from a very famous slasher film that I will not mention here, it borrows killer P.O.V. shots taken right out of HALLOWEEN and it has the same plot-line from the original THE SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE, but all that does not say that this movie is bad, and not fun.

SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE 3 is a simple slasher film, a group of girlfriends gather for a slumber party, their boyfriends show up and they are killed off one-by-one by a masked killer, using the famous power-drill which is used in all three films.

One thing that impressed me was that three of the main characters, Jackie (Keely Christian), Diane (Brandi Burkett) and Susie (Maria Claire) all seemed very real and down-to-earth. Even though Christian and Burkett look like the usual bimbos, they are not. I'm glad that these three lasted the longest, although 1 or 2 of them might die, I won't give it away.

The final 20 minutes are also fun when the killer reveals themself while there are still a lot of character left to die, making many suspenseful and action filled scenes.

The score by Jamie Sheriff was also very creepy and it worked for the film.

the bad: The identity of the killer is not surprising at all. First of all it is just plain obvious, but it is also shown on the back of the movie box and in the trailer.

It also seemed pretty dumb that certain characters said dumb lines after they discover that there friends are dying. Like a scene in the living room when the characters are waiting for two of the guys to come back with weapons, one of them looks at the pizza stain on the rug and says "Jesus, the rug looks like crap!" Or when two of them are going in the basement to lock the window, one spots a sword-fish on the wall and just says "Nice fish!" What kind of a friend finds you dead in a garmet bag and complains about a pizza stain or makes a joke about a fish less then an hour later?!
