THE SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE (1982) helped define the slash­er film ethos of the 1980s.  Put togeth­er by first-time direc­tor Amy Holden from a script, titled “Don’t Open the Door,” by cel­e­brat­ed author Rita Mae Brown (Rubyfruit Jungle), the film was an imme­di­ate hit for Roger Corman’s New World Pictures, even­tu­al­ly spawn­ing two sequels and became a sta­ple in mom-and-pop cor­ner video stores of the 1980s.

When Trish (Michele Michaels) decides to invite her high school girls’ bas­ket­ball team­mates over for a slum­ber par­ty, she has no idea the night is going to end with an unex­pect­ed guest – an escaped men­tal patient and his portable pow­er drill – crash­ing the par­ty in the cult clas­sic, The Slumber Party Massacre.
