It's probably one of their most requested title (after Fright Night 2
maybe) and today Scream Factory made it official with a surprise announcement via their Facebook
page. They're bringing The Slumber Party Massacre
to Blu-ray next year.
"We're happy to report that we've gone back into our "vaults" and will be bringing the original 1982 SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE film to Blu-ray for the first time in early 2014! This will be a brand new HD transfer taken from the original camera negative. We had many requests for this and we're pleased to be able to bring this into the Scream family.
As many of you know, we released this film on DVD back in 2010 along with Parts 2 & 3 as a part of a "Roger Corman's Cult Classics" collection. For several factors (mostly financial), we can only bring you the original at this time on Blu but if sales are solid, we will certainly consider 2 & 3 for the future. "
There you have it folks. You can get the original next year but if you want the sequels you better pony up and buy it!
Interesting note: This movie was intended as a parody and was not only directed by a woman, Amy Holden Jones (Maid To Order, Mystic Pizza
), but also written by feminist Rita Mae Brown
