Slumber Party Massacre Double Feature Staff Pick

When: Fri., Aug. 23, 10 p.m. and Sat., Aug. 24, 10 p.m. 2019
Price: $13.12
Late Nite Grindhouse is back from its unfortunate hiatus with a new and hopefully long-term home theater, and to celebrate it's going twice as long with the Slumber Party Massacre double feature. Slumber Party Massacre was originally written by Rita Mae Brown as a feminist takedown of slasher film, but was reworked during production as an essentially straightforward blood 'n' screams teen film. Still, it retains something of its original humor as well as a few unintentional laughs. Both it and its sequel, Slumber Party Massacre 2, are written and directed by women, which is an interesting wrinkle for the genre. Both films are shown back to back starting at 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday (August 23 and 24) at the Marcus Des Peres 14 Cine (12701 Manchester Road, Des Peres; Tickets for the two-fer are $13.12.
