Deathdream, The Toolbox Murders, Let Sleeping Corpses Lie, Silent Scream, and Night School are great films, Deathdream being my favorite out the bunch. Killer Party (it has been several years since I saw it) was not all that. The comedy fell flat and the transition from slasher film to supernatural/demonic possession film was done very poorly, it pretty much just morphs into a totally different film in the last 20 minutes or so. When it comes to demonic/slasher/comedy hybrids I would go with Prom Night II. But that is just me.

That's fair enough, although I feel the performances are strong enough to overcome some of the character weaknesses.

Also- it's a pretty shocking little movie. With a surprising brutal streak.

I think it's a bit underrated, personally.

This horror-comedy should have been a staple if you ask me.
I did everything I could to talk it up. It was much better than it had any right to be. It certainly has a better late-middle, early-ending than Hell Night (though HN definitely had the superior final 3 minutes).
