The Final Girls & BFI Cult present The Slumber Party Massacre

The Final Girls, in partnership with BFI Cult proudly present a special double bill of feminist slasher, The Slumber Party Massacre

Join us on Friday 21st July at BFI Southbank for a double dose of pyjama parties gone wrong

We'll be screening parts one & two of this seminal franchise. Between the films, we'll be discussing feminist slasher films with BFI Cult Programmer, Michael Blyth + more guests tbc.

About the films:

When Trish (Michaels) decides to invite her friends over for a slumber party, she has no idea the night is going to end with an unexpected guest – an escaped mental patient with a power drill. Originally intended as a slasher parody, Amy Holden Jones’ 80s cult classic, The Slumber Party Massacre, challenges the audience to consider what the pervasive male gaze does for women in horror film

In Slumber Party Massacre II, Courtney (Bernard) cannot shake her nightmare encounter with the slumber party driller killer. When her dreams begin blending with reality, and the relentless killer re-enters her life as an evil rocker (complete with power-drill guitar), this not-so-classic sequel takes a camp turn that is memorable to say the least.

The Final Girls is a film collective exploring feminist themes in horror cinema.
