I've been bored lately and want a slasher cheapie. All 4 (I think) of these are like $9, so I wanted to know which two to get. From what I've read, Slumber Party Massacre and Sorority House Massacre II are the ones to get, but any opinions? Oh yeah, they do have lots of nudity right? No bull shit underwear :D.

Slumber Party Massacre is a decent slasher movie, and it has what you are looking for :)

As for Sorority House Massace, avoid it. There is a bit of nudity, but the movie is strictly amateur and derivative of Halloween. At only 74 minutes this movie still seems long and boring.

Haven't seen any of the sequels, but if some of you guys recommend them I will be sure to check them out!

Either Slumber Party 2 or Sorority 2 (whichever one doesn't have that guy with the guitar/drill on the front, that one blows) is the best of the bunch. It has the better looking girls of all of them, and is pretty fun to watch. All the girls get naked, take extended showers, and then get murdered. Pretty funny indeed.

The drill guitar is Slumber Party Massacre 3, and it is the worst of the 3. All the rest are fairly fun, and about the same.

Part 2 has the guitar/drill, I've never seen part 3.

its not on dvd, but if you can find the Invisible Maniac on vhs, you should get that instead. so much better than any of the Slumber Party or Sorority House movies.

LOL -- I remember Invisible Maniac... hilarious stuff. I still have an old copy of it from late night Cinemax or Showtime in the 80s.

Now that you've mentioned it, I'll have to dig through my old tapes and find it...

I've seen all these movies.

Slumber Party Massacre- Fun, gory slasher film, lots of nudity.
SPM2- wierd, electrick guitar driller killer, I still liked it thought, hated the ending, lots of gore, not so much nudity.
SPM3-Best of the lot, gory as hell, a bit of nudity and lots of fun.
Sorority House Massacre- Compleat Halloween rip off, it's only OK.
SHM2- a little better but not by much, still fun.

if you're looking for a semi-serious slasher film, go for all of them but SP2. If you want something to watch with your friends when your drunk, definately get Slumber 2.

My favorite is Sorority 2. There's that really hot british girl in it. I love that girl. I wish I could remember her name. I own the bastard but I can't remember where I put it. Dammit.

I have read somewhere that the 74 minutes New Concord DVD of "Sorority House Massacre" is cut (just like the Slumber Party Massacre 2 DVD). The U.K. DVD is said to be cut as well. The U.K. and German VHS ( retitled "Death House") are said to be the only uncut versions (PAL running time 86:07 minutes) .
Does anyone know what is actually missing?

Horrorbid.com (http://www.horrorbid.com/blog/blog1.php/2010/02/05/slumber-party-massacre-dvd-series-gettin) is reporting that the Slumber Party Massacre series is being released with special editions in October. When Shout Factory announced the Roger Corman deal these were the movies I wanted the most as the current DVD's are OOP and in fullscreen. Maybe these new releases will be uncut.

I've got a custom of that I downloaded. How can you not love a low-budget cheesefest with dead porn stars (Savannah) and a mad professor? Everyone should try to track this down in one form or another (all that's out there are vhs and torrents from the vhs).

Having not seen all the Massacre movies I can't say this is better. I can say it's better than any of the Massacre movies I have seen (Soroity 1, Slumber 1 and either Slum 2 or 3.). Maybe not a better made movie, but much nore fun and enjoyable. Maniac cracked me up, the others bored me.

According to ofdb.com the New Concord DVD was "re-edited"
Mostly dialogue was trimmed for whatever reason.
The US Warner tape is supposed to contain the unedited version as well.

I'm stoked about the upcoming re-releases. It sounds like they will be great releases, and I'll pre-order all of 'em as soon as they appear on Amazon.

Slumber Party Massacre II easily ranks up there in my top ten. I've seen it so many times over the years that it's now imprinted on my retina. :evil:

Isn't it just a mind trip how stupid some people are? I notice allot of people don't buy or bid intelligently.

I've got all of them already, except Hard to Die, but if there's something new on any of these I may double dip.

I finally just got around to watching Sorority House Massacre 1 and 2 and actually enjoyed part 1 much more. Not that it was great, and yes it was a somewhat watered down/poor man's Halloween, but I just found part 2 to be so stupid. Other than the bimbos, which is great and all, it was pretty damn lame. At least part 1 attempted to have a creepy slasher factor. And what was the deal with part 2 combining with the Slumber Party Massacre storyline - was someone confused? Haha.

I need to revisit the Slumber Party Massacre series, can't really recall how I felt about them upon first viewing many years ago.

I never understood the Slumber Party Massacre story being included into Sorority House Massacre 2. They did the same thing with Hard to Die.
It's been a while since I've seen the films but I think I feel the same as you and like the first Sorority House better than the second.

What the hell?!? Why is that movie so damn expensive?

Not a big fan of Sorority House Massacre. It's a bland and boring Halloween clone with a OK final 15 minutes.

The sequel on the other hand? Pure hilarious cheese.

Hard to Die is a lot of fun as well.

I like Sorority House Massacre 2, but it's easily the weakest film in either series. Unless Cheerleader Massacre counts, which it doesn't.

Hard To Die is basically the same film, only better and in a skyscraper. But then again, Psycho Cop 2 did the "killer in a skyscraper" slasher flick way better.

Both films feel like cheap Wynorski films, which they are.

Sorority House Massacre, on the other hand, fits right in with the Slumber Party Massacre series. It has some really fun chase scenes, and I love the little bits like the bloody knife in the fireplace. Also, can you say "fashion montage"! Also gotta love little lines like "psychic bacon" and "let's eat Melanie's ice cream!"

Too much fun! Can't wait for the upcoming blu-ray.

'Cause it's long OOP, and that's the fact jack! :p

Seriously though, I bought it when it first came out back in 2004. I think I paid like $7 for it new.

Scorpion "might" possibly be re-releasing it at some point though, since they're also re-releasing The Haunting of Morella which is a Wynorski film released by the same studio, New Concorde.

My nostalgia will likely always cloud my judgment but I have fun with Wynorski films I'm not even nostalgic for. Slumber Party Massacre? 3 is a brainless shitheap, the first is an utter waste of the talent on display and boring for the most part, 2 is almost interesting as a surreal, casual WTF flick... then the rocker guy shows up and it's an aggressive, painful slog for which I demand someone explain if they ever hope for it to be considered on the level with Wynorski's best (namely 976-Evil 2 and SHM 2 and 3 / Hard to Die).

Actually, forget it. I watched the film and- there is no explanation. There is not even the slightest clue that he exists in anyone's memory, he's not the most popular Fake Music Video Artist on Fake-MTV (ala- Critters), he's not a nightmare reincarnation of a dead loved one, he's not an actual escapee from prison or an asylum, he's not a leftover from a previous film. He's the 1987 equivalent to that fucking "PANCAKES!" kid from Cabin Fever, turning up again and again and again and again and again and again. And the filmmaker expecting 70% of the horror to hinge upon him...

Wait... sorry: Dennis from Cabin Fever was actually set-up in that film. You knew where he came from (even though it was still stupid). So, that's being unfair to a better film and filmmaker.
