Slumber Party Massacre remake trailer announces October Syfy premiere date

The Banana Splits Movie director Danishka Esterhazy’s Slumber Party Massacre, a remake of the 1982 cult classic The Slumber Party Massacre (watch it HERE), just had its premiere at Fantastic Fest, and now it’s ready to be shown to a wider audience. Slumber Party Massacre will be airing on Syfy on October 16th, and you can check out the teaser trailer in the embed above. There is some very cool Driller Killer action on display in that teaser’s 30 seconds, so this looks quite promising to me.

Written by Suzanne Keilly (Leprechaun Returns), this Slumber Party Massacre has the following synopsis:

A slumber party turns into a bloodbath when a power drill-wielding psychopath disrupts the fun.

The film stars Frances Sholto-Douglas, Jane de Wet, Alex McGregor, Nathan Castle, Masali Baduza, Schelaine Bennett, Arthur Falko, Hannah Gonera, Michael Lawrence Potter, Richard White, Rob van Vuuren, Jennifer Steyn, Richard Wright-Firth, Reem Koussa, Larissa Crafford-Lazarus, Mila Rayne, Dean Goldblum, and Reze-Tiana Wessels.

The new Slumber Party Massacre was produced in partnership with Blue Ice Pictures. Bob Emmer, Garson Foos, Jordan Fields, and Brent Haynes served as executive producers.

The Banana Splits Movie and Leprechaun Returns were both Syfy premieres, so Esterhazy and Keilly know how this works. Slumber Party Massacre will eventually be getting a home video release in North America from Shout! Studios, and we’ll let you know when the details of that release are revealed.

I could take or leave Slumber Party Massacre III, but I am a big fan of the original The Slumber Party Massacre and an even bigger fan of its batshit crazy sequel Slumber Party Massacre II. I look forward to seeing what Esterhazy and Keilly have done with the concept this time around. It’s very difficult to mess up the idea of a killer wielding a giant drill interrupting a slumber party.
