Slumber Party Massacre Remake Trailer Sees Return of Power Drill Wielding Killer

The first trailer for the Slumber Party Massacre remake is here, featuring the return of the iconic power drill-wielding killer. The original Slumber Party Massacre released in 1982 was made with a very small budget. Even though the film didn’t get as much attention as other horror films from the ’80s like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street, Slumber Party Massacre has become a cult classic in the last 39 years. Slumber Party Massacre II was then released in 1987, followed by Slumber Party Massacre III in 1990.

Shout! Studios announced in April that they were crafting a remake of the ’80s slasher, and now the first trailer from Syfy has arrived. The short teaser shows plenty of brutal killings before confirming a premiere date of October 16 on Syfy. In addition to the new coeds, the trailer shows actor Rob van Vuuren as Russ Thorne, a role previously played by Michael Villella. The full trailer can be seen below:

Since Slumber Party Massacre has flown under the radar for a lot of people, it is probably for the best that Shout! Studios is making it a TV movie rather than trying to release the slasher in theaters. On top of the current issues with theaters regarding the pandemic, the seemingly simplistic plot of Slumber Party Massacre may have had trouble bringing in crowds. Even though Slumber Party Massacre may not have as big of a following as other horror movies, this, in addition to Don Mancini’s Chucky TV show, will certainly give Syfy the upper hand when it comes to Halloween content this year.
