YOU BRING THE PIZZA… I’LL BRING THE DRILL.
High-school student Trish Devereaux (Michelle Michaels) throws a slumber party, but a drill-wielding serial killer puts a damper on the evening. Originally conceived as a spoof of slasher movies, feminist writer Rita Mae Brown’s script was instead turned into another lame copy of Halloween (even if some sense of humor has been preserved). Clumsy murders, boring killer… but enjoys a certain cult following, not least thanks to the emasculating symbolism of the final showdown.
1982-U.S. 78 min. Color. Directed by Amy Holden Jones. Screenplay: Rita Mae Brown. Cast: Michelle Michaels (Trish Devereaux), Robin Stille (Valerie Bates), Michael Villella (Russ Thorn), Andree Honore, Debra Deliso, Gina Mari.
