PINK FLAMINGO CINEMA Presents Slumber Party Massacre
An 18-year-old high school girl is left at home by her parents and decides to have a slumber party. Meanwhile, a mass murderer with a propensity for power tools has escaped from prison, and eventually makes his way to the party where the guests begin dropping off one by one.
Part satire, part exploitation THE SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE (1982) is a hard movie to pin down. Written by queer author Rita Mae Brown (Rubyfruit Jungle) and directed by Amy Holden Jones it was originally intended to be an exploration of the rules of the Dead Teenager Movie, specifically as they related to women. In the end it was financed by legendary sleazelord Roger Corman, who demanded as much gratuitous nudity as they could fit in frame. The end result is a weird, campy ride delivering both subversive parody and wall-to-wall violence + titties in equal measure, years before the self aware irony of 90s slashers.
Doors at 7:30, movie 8pm. Suggested donation $5-$10.
Pink Flamingo Cinema exists on the land of the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora Nation, from whom sovereignty was never ceded.
