Slumber Party Massacre 2 Movie Review 384





Slumber Party Massacre 2 is a 1987 horror movie. It is a sequel to the first movie but nowhere near as fun. It is directed by Deborah Brock and stars Crystal Bernard, Kimberly McArthur,Juliette Cummins and Patrick Lowe.


The plot of this movie is a bit weird. If you have watched the original, then you know the story. Courtney and her sister were chased by a maniacal killer and they survived. Valerie, Courtney's sister, ended up in a mental institution and Courtney has bad dreams. She is haunted by an unknown killer in her dreams. When she and her pals, Amy(McArthur) , Sheila(Cummins),Sally(Heidi Kozak) go to a condo for the weekend with their boyfriends, it all becomes strange. Courtney sees horrible things. She sees people being killed and she sees warnings from her sister. She thinks that she is losing her mind and the others are worried about her. Her love interest Matt(Lowe) is there too and he wants to help her.


The rest of the movie consists of Courtney having nightmares about a leather-clad rock n' roll maniac with a guitar that has a drill attached. He comes out of her nightmares and kills all of her pals with his groovy guitar. He chases her down and then the ending of the film is really messed up and strange. It is sort of a comedy really. You couldn't take it seriously. I found that it started well and went downhill as it progressed. The original was good, this wasn't great at all. It is worth a look for comedy value alone, but otherwise, you might avoid it. I will give it a 4/10.

I remember this one! Came out the year after I graduated high school. The pain from sitting through it still lingers. You were kind to give it 4/10.

Well, some of these 80's sequels were pretty bad, but they are still better than some movies that are released these days! This made me laugh, hence the rating!!!
