      Martin F The Slumber Party Massacre trilogy is bad, let's not kid ourselves here, but they succeed in giving the same quality between each movie while using very different tones. The first one was pure 80's slasher, the second got over-the-top ridiculous and this one looked for something darker, more disturbing. With the third installment, the signature scenes between the movie appear: there is always a scene where the girls dance in sexy lingerie while some guys look out the window all horny. Not much happens before the ultimate killing spree in the last quarter of the movie. They try to put a mystery around the killer's identity with different suspects but they fail to make the viewers guess as they barely put any effort into developing the mystery. It's the darkest movie of the trilogy, the kills are cruel and the theme of abuse is very present here, with one especially disturbing scene towards the end. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/07/23 Full Review Lenin P Ok the franchise is back in good form. Totally recovers from the atrocity that was part 2. A solid amount of gore this time around. Finally a return to regular old kills, instead of the implied deaths. I really hate those. Show me the person dying. I'm glad they weren't afraid to bring back the boobs. They were plentiful in this installment, ya gotta love it. It has a nice flow to it, never a dull moment. The actors were relatable and fun to watch. They totally got me with who the killer ended up being. I was totally fooled. Blood, guts, and tits, with some screaming mixed in. That summarizes this film. Decent watch. Well worth watching for sure. It's a fun one. I'm glad I found this series. I'm wondering how the remake turned out? This gets a LennyReviewz Score of: 7/10 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Don't waste your money on buy the party massacre it has nothing to the characters from the original and part 2. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/12/22 Full Review Audience Member Directed by Sally Mattison and written by Catherine Cyran — all of the Slumber Party Massacre movies have been directed by women — this movie is probably the worst of the three films and a remake. It does have a character named The Beach Weirdo that somehow has a power drill that he carries around and uses to do what killers in the slumber party movies do, which is drill women. After filming was completed, the set was used for another Roger Corman-produced sequel that was also unrelated to the movie that before: Sorority House Massacre II. Speaking of Corman, this movie needed his special touch, because even though the actresses in the film were hired because they would get nude, several refused and Mattison agreed to let them keep their clothes on. The sinister foreign buyers demanded to see some flesh and Maria Ford was the one to get her clothes ripped off and assaulted, no matter what Mattison wanted to have happened. Man, how has Corman never been part of the Me Too takedown? Hopefully, he's treated his talent better than what I've read. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review steve d Just as ridiculous and exploitative as the others. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member A step down, in that it doesn't seem to understand what this series really is, taking itself far too seriously. Somehow. Still, as a straightforward slasher it's decent enough, even though the killer is laughable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/18/19 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Paul Lê Bloody Disgusting Nevertheless, the bleak tone of this quarrelsome sequel should be appealing to someone looking for straightforward slashers from before the postmodern movement, and the violence — particularly in the unrated edition — is agonizing and bloody. Rated: 3/5 Jul 20, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Offers absolutely nothing in the way of wit or imagination. Rated: 1/4 May 24, 2023 Full Review Amanda Mazzillo Film Joy Slumber Party Massacre III is a decently enjoyable slasher film with some feminist undertones, but it never reaches the same heights as its predecessors through a misguided subversion of tropes.
