SLAUGHTERHOUSE SLUMBER PARTY is a film about a group of girls whose annual slumber party is ruined when the accidental death of the new girl turns into a deadly haunting.
This Kickstarted film was written, directed, and edited by Dustin Mills, whose resume includes such lurid titles as The Puppet Monster Massacre, Trashtastic, Her Name Was Torment.
Mills said in an interview that films like his aren’t being made elsewhere today, but he says “I don’t think it’s because no one wants it.” He’s probably right, but make sure you know what you’re getting into with this one.
I think the best way to describe this film is with the word “low”: low budget, low humor, and lowbrow. That’s not necessarily a bad thing if it’s your bag, but it’s worth noting. If “I can see your titties” and farting in people’s faces makes you laugh, then this might be your kind of film.
I think the easiest way to paint a clear picture of this film is probably by invoking the drive-in totals created by the world’s foremost drive-in movie critic, Joe Bob Briggs. If you’ll indulge me.
5 dead bodies
1 undead ghoul
1 bisection by ghost shark
Gratuitous horror film references
Gratuitous alcohol snatching
Gratuitous lackluster naked pillow fight
Gratuitous camera zoom
CGI demon fu
Drive-in academy award nominations for special effects artist Marcus Koch.
At the end of the day, this movie wasn’t for me, but if those totals (and bathroom humor) rev your engine, then it just might be for you.
