Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"he strain between content and tone leaves it feeling like no other slasher film of that period, and while it also leaves it more frustrating and ineffectives... it stands out."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Fans of the genre will find very little to appreciate here, while those who aren't fans will find even less. Unless you're desperately looking for a little T&A and blood, then it's best to stay away from this party."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"A gruesome, T&A-filled feminist tract about female fears of mature male sexuality."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"You get what you pay for with a title like this one."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"[Director Amy Holden] Jones tries the more effective tack of playing the slasher stuff straight and inserting clever visual jokes when she has the opportunity."
‑ Scott Tobias, The Dissolve
"[Blu-ray Review] An amalgamation of satire, conventional box-checking and fright tactics, "The Slumber Party Massacre" is smarter than most naysayers give it credit."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"Inexplicably praised in some circles for its reputed feminist angle."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"Slumber Party Massacre is not a great film - the plot is thin and the performances occasionally a little awkward - but there's no doubt that it maintains its shock value."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"Click to read the review."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"If you need a slasher flick, you could do worse"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
