"Where the Guest of Honor is DEATH!"


It's April Fool's Day, and a trio of sorority pledges is getting psyched about the big party at the old frat house down the block. Having suffered through the worst of their 'initiation ceremonies', the three girls are ready to get drunk, get down, and well... get laid, I guess. However, they had no idea what lay in store for them at the "Killer Party". It turns out that the old frat house is haunted by the spirit of a former frat brother that was 'accidentally decapitated' during a freakish hazing accident 20 years earlier. His corpse, long buried in the backyard of the frat house, is aroused by the ruckus of the college party fuckus and rises from his grave to exact his bloody revenge. However, zombie maulings aren't the mode of attack in this film. In a stroke of undead genius, the zombified frat boy decides to possess the nubile body of one of the pledge sisters and have HER do all his dirty work! Rest assured that whether it's death by electric wire, garden tool, or by guillotine- this is going to be one hell of a party.

Sounds Like Fun!

Sike, bitch: it isn't. Aside from the hardcore 80s wardrobes, hairstyles, and unbelievable MUSIC VIDEO at the beginning of the film (which warrants two stars by itself)- KILLER PARTY just doesn't deliver the horror flick goods. The biggest gripe is the fact that practically all of the 'gruesome killings' take place off screen and with little or no gore at all! What KILLER PARTY does have is some titty. What it DOESN'T have is some balls. The movie makers toned down the blood and guts considerably, and the whole movie hurts because of it. It's just that inescapable 80s feel that keeps you glued to the set for oh, 30 minutes or so. After that, though... the novelty of all the big hair wears off and you make the horrifying realization that you actually paid money to watch this shit. Here at Night of the Creeps, our crack team of seasoned veterans were unable to make it through this stinkfest. Goddammit, we gave it our all.. and when the going got tough we even chanted 'U - S - A! U - S - A!'. but, alas, this movie soundly whipped our asses into submission. It got the old corduroy boot kick before the 60 minute mark. Fellow slaves to the Bad Movie, I warn you: KILLER PARTY may not be the worst horror flick in the video store (that title probably goes to JACK-O), but it's sure as shit not what we call a winner back home. Beware!

Mr. Paul: "Eighties clothes, music, titty, and attitudes... not very good. However, I did like the music video at the beginning."


Z-man: "Like an episode of 'Square Pegs'... with more titty... and a guillotine. But damn- that music video kicks ass! Was that WARRANT?"


Eagle Te: "WOW!!! All I can say is...this sucks the core out of a Mantaur's Ass!!!! The music video at the beginning almost makes this one worth it and was completely unexpected!!! I swear those guys looked like they must have been the opening act for Nelson or something! "After the rain....."
