    I wouldn't part with either of them, but there is something about Sorority House Massacre that I find to be actually scary in parts. To date, I am not at all sure what it is, but it gives that movie the edge for me.

    Of course, for pure camp value, you can't beat Sorority House Massacre 2.

  4. Slumber. In my mind it's a classic. Sorority holds a special place in my heart too but not over Slumber.

    Slumber Party Massacre. Sorority had a good middle part, but the beginning and end were kind of weak. Sorority House Massacre II - Nighty Nightmare, now that's a classic :D

    No, Slumber Party Massacre II is a classic. You got the names mixed up silly. :p

    I have a hard time keeping track of all these Massacre movies (I'm getting old and my memory is going) but I seem to think that Sorority was slightly better...unless I was thinking of another movie. Ah well, not like my vote will change to world.

    Edit: Oops! I was thinking of another movie. Sorority was blah! Guess I'm voting for Slumber.

    Slumber Party Massacre, BY FAR. It is one of my favorite slashers. I have always hated Sorority House Massacre, ever since I first saw it.

    Gotta go with with Slumber, but I did enjoy Sorority more than most.

    I'm not a fan of Sorority House Massacre at all. Slumber Party is in a completely different league. No comparison.

    The majority is right on the money: Slumber Party Massacre - by Far. Sorority House Massacre is the pure definition of lame. It's a perfect non-movie in every way. There's one cheesy Trying On Clothes montage, a little male nudity, and a tiny bit of "freaky" dream imagery. The rest is garbage. The kind that smells.

    I will never let this one go: it is 1,000% Logically Impossible for the fuckin' killer to jump through the second story window from the outside when there is no ladder or balcony for him to climb through. It takes major force to break through a window. It takes room to make the push, there's nowhere for his feet to go, and this guy is just a cheap Random Psycho Broken-Out-of Loony Bin (no charisma, no intensity, nothing- this might be the worst killer in the entire pantheon of 80's slashers)- not a super human cartoon character.

    This is one of the most infuriating things I've ever seen in horror, the filmmakers Did Not Care. They gave up before they ever tried. In the name of the body count, they just let the killer magically keep coming back. It's not a parody of Jason and Michael Myers, it's just stupid.
