Award-winning Author Grady Hendrix invites you into the world of horror films more w/ special bonus screening of “Slumber Party Massacre.”
WELCOME TO THE FINAL GIRL SUPPORT GROUP
Bestselling author Grady Hendrix (Paperbacks from Hell, My Best Friend’s Exorcism) welcomes you to a very special support group, so have a seat, coffee’s in the back, and remember there’s no cross-talk. Then prepare yourself for a guided tour of the history of murder books and movies, because ever since the invention of the printing press we’ve been using it to tell stories about killing each other, from bizarro 19th century Jack the Ripper fan fiction, through Psycho, the industry-changing success of Silence of the Lambs, all the way up to today when serial killers have become superheroes. Along the way we’ll encounter the agony of primal hamster trauma, the pathos of Garfield the cat, and the magic of deformed monster sons as together we try to figure out what it means that so much of our entertainment is about selling murder for fun.
Slumber Party Massacre(1982) A high school student’s slumber party turns into a bloodbath, as a newly escaped psychotic serial killer wielding a power drill prowls her neighborhood.
