Movie Info

Once again, it's horror on a college campus. The difference between this and other entries in the slice-n-dice genre is that bloodflow is minimal and most of the horror occurs off-screen. That is not to say that there are no queasy acts of violence though. Set just before April Fools Day, the story centers on a trio of sorority pledges who attend a dance held at a haunted frat house where two decades before a pledge lost his head in a hazing gone awry. During the party, the dead frat boy rises up from his gravesite (located in the backyard), takes over the body of one of the girl pledges and embarks upon an evening of bloody, inventive revenge using a variety of tools that include but are not limited too garden utensils, electric wires and even a guillotine.

Audience Reviews for Killer Party

A fairly typical revenge tale of pranks gone wrong that has a few comedic bits going for it, this one manages to spice things up a bit from the average slasher. Rental.

(***): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] Not great, but I found it to be entertaining. This would be a good double feature with April Fool's Day, which also came out the same year.

Killer Party was originally titled April Fool's day, but that other "classic" (yet crappy) film beat it to the punch, so it became Killer Party, another typical 80s slasher film that is relatively entertaining for fans of the genre and the period, but it lacks in bloodshed. While it is relatively entertaining, it lacks the frequent, brutal death scenes that define the genre.
