Audience Reviews for Slumber Party Massacre III (Stab in the Dark)
Slumber Party Massacre III is a solid conclusion to the series considering the let down of the second sequel. The attempt at humor is replaced with good old fashioned elements which make a slasher film great to watch. Everything that the filmmakers missed the mark on in the second has been fixed. The third entry in the series doesn't drag till the last few minutes of the film to get the killing started. The first kill in this one happen within the first ten minutes, and it's very bloody, just like in the first film. The thing with The Slumber Party Massacre films is that they're films that you have to remember that they're very tongue in cheek in nature. This third entry is a lot of fun with every cliché aspect that you'd expect from a Slasher film: tits, sex, gorgeous women, drunken teenagers who are clueless and of course a psycho wielding a power drill. The return to basics is what makes this film worth watching. Sure, it's silly as hell and plainly ridiculous, but it's meant to be a lot fun, and it delivers it in spades. Sure the film is uneven, but what Slasher film isn't? This is a fine conclusion to a unique series of Slashers that redeems the mistakes of the second film. I'm glad that the filmmakers didn't overdo the series with a lot more sequels. The three films here are fine the way they are. It's a good thing the filmmakers where to draw the line.More
This is perhaps my favorite SPM as it has a good array of potential antagonists so it keeps you wondering. The nudity and slashing is all still here, just like in the first two, but the interplay of characters is done best in this one I believe. After seeing SPM 1 and 2, you won't experience much more than you did with the first however, always leaving sequels that recycle formulas with lower ratings, even if they are better than the original.More
