Written by Rita Mae Brown, Slumber Party Massacre is the directorial debut of Amy Holden Jones.  As a film conceived and made by women, within the production context of low-budget genre filmmaking, Slumber Party Massacre presents a particular opportunity to consider if a slasher film can be a feminist endeavour and what pleasures this most disreputable and oft-decried as misogynistic horror sub-genre offers for women.

This event is free, and open to all.
