Really Awful Movies: Ep 309 – The Slumber Party Massacre

On this week’s episode of the podcast, a short podcast for a short movie! The Slumber Party Massacre has a speedy run time of 76 minutes, a lean, mean stalk-and-slash machine.

The plot isn’t actually Chinatown. It’s pretty straightforward. I mean, the title says it all, right? There’s a girls’ basketball team and they decide to throw a slumber party one night and to even invite one of the less popular girls. Unfortunately, there’s a power tool-wielding deviant interrupting the proceedings. Don’t you just hate it when that happens?

The Slumber Party Massacre is one of those 80s horror gems. Join us this week on the podcast, and be sure to subscribe.



Really Awful Movies: Ep 298 – Mortuary

On this episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast: Mortuary! This is an underseen 1983 quasi-slasher starring a young Bill Paxton.

There’s a mortuary (duh) and two young guys start poking around. One of them goes missing. The other? He goes to the roller rink to ask where he might’ve gone. Ah yes, seeking answers from the oracle that is the disco roller rink

His girlfriend’s father was murdered. And she suspects that his demise has something to do with the local mortuary.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch…

There’s a figure clad in black, skulking around with a trocar, the cannula device used to extract bodily fluid. Jeez, I wonder who the perp could be? Could they be in some way connected to…a mortuary?

An all-over-the-map misfire, there are still fun elements to this one.
