THIS THURSDAY, CINEMACABRE INCITES A BLOODY PILLOW FIGHT!

on February 13, 2012 | Leave a comment

In honour of Women in Horror Month, this month’s CineMacabre Movie Night is a 35mm presentation of Amy Holden Jones’ SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE – THIS THURSDAY, February 16 @ 9:30 p.m. at The Toronto Underground Cinema (186 Spadina Avenue – Toronto). Written by acclaimed feminist author Rita Mae Brown, the classic ’80s splat flick both follows the rules of the subgenre and parodies them as a killer with a huge, phallic drill stalks a group of nubile young women heaving a sleepover.

One night only! Killer prizes! Plus, a discussion of the film with director Amy Holden Jones via Skype!
