Critic Reviews for Slaughter Studios
Director Brian Katkin spends the film's first half poking fun at Corman's history of cheapie B-flicks and the second half buying into the formula, finding creative (and not so creative) reasons for his buxom stars to disrobe
Doesn't live up to it's cover
Audience Reviews for Slaughter Studios
As absolutely atrocious as this is, it made me want to film a movie, and I laughed watching it, so it's not a total wash.
[size=5][b]Slaughter Studios[/b][/size] Directed by: Brian Katkin [img]http://www.critcononline.com/images/slaughter%20studios%20vhs%20front3.jpg[/img] I was hoping this would be a fun exploitation movie in the relm of "The Slumber Party Massacre" or "Sorrority House Massacre 2: Nighty Nightmare". But while those films were certainly bad films, they were 'good' bad films that had a sense of style and a sense of self-aware humor. This movie is so bad, that it's clear it's self-aware, but it isn't that funny, and the camerawork, sets, and acting are so bad, that it instead comes off as amaturish instead of campy. It feels like two guys got a few girls with fake boobs drunk and ran them around an old building with bad lighting. Anyhow, there is good crap and bad crap. This is bad crap.

Well, it doesn't. But it DOES have a very similar vibe to Harry Potter 3, I now understand perfectly why they knew he could do such a project. When I saw HP3, I had seen Great Expectations and Y Tu Mama Tambien, and I admit, I had no idea why they hired him. Anyhow, I liked HP3, but didn't know why they knew he could do it. This is why. Anyhow, I grew up watching the Shirly Temple version of this movie. It actually isn't as different as I thought it would be, the plot and most of the story is pretty much the same. However, the changes they do make are largely improvements, and the acting, sets, and camerawork are all better in this film. It's got a very magical sense to it, an excellent children's film. Anyhow, it didn't blow me away, but it's very solid. [size=4][i]8.0[/i][/size]
