Surprisingly Enjoyable Slasher Flick
26 October 2010 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

A new generation of filmmakers has snuck into the abandoned Slaughter Studios to make one last film. However, the studio is haunted by a killer... and, you know, that's bad.

Okay, so I had this DVD sitting on my "to watch" pile for a while, and I thought it would be a pile of trash, coming from New Concorde (who the heck are New Concorde?) and with a cover that seems like a ripoff of "Hell Night". But, surprise, I actually really loved it and my girlfriend laughed hard.

The plot, that this is going to be the last film shot at Slaughter Studios, is sort of true... it was indeed the last film shot at Roger Corman's studio before it was torn down. And it started off as a remake off "Slumber Party Massacre" before a script change, which I think saved it...

Additionally, the DVD has a director's commentary (I haven't listened yet) and some trailers... including a trailer for "Lethal Force" that is pretty funny.

But not as funny as the film's ending (you really have to wait for it).
