“An underrated little gem that puts a spotlight on female friendship, and also has something to say about breaking away from toxic family relationships.”
-- Amanda Reyes, ARE YOU IN THE HOUSE ALONE?
After working as a production assistant on SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE, filmmaker Carol Frank was given carte blanche by legendary producer Roger Corman to make her own slasher movie. And that’s how we ended up with SORORITY HOUSE MASSACRE, the most unique -- and criminally overlooked -- slasher of 1986. Like SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE before it, this movie inverts the typical gender expectations of slashers while doubling as a skid row version of HALLOWEEN. But thanks to the dreamy photography, a focus on women’s perspectives, and the greatest cameo by a Smurfs piñata in motion picture history, SORORITY HOUSE MASSACRE ends up feeling like HALLOWEEN meets BEACHES on the set of SAVED BY THE BELL. This is also known as paradise.
