There’s Now a Remake of SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE in the Works at Shout! Studios for SYFY

The seminal 1980s era slasher Slumber Party Massacre is not set for a remake from Shout! Studio. The film will premiere on SYFY later this year. Danishka Esterhazy (The Banana Splits Movie) directs from a screenplay penned by Suzanne Keilly (Ash vs Evil Dead). Deadline broke the news, reporting that Hannah Gonera, Frances Sholto-Douglas, Mila Rayne, Alex McGregor, and Reze-Tiana Wessels star in the remake, which completed filming in South Africa last month.

“Remaking one of the seminal films of Roger Corman and Amy Holden Jones’ early work is exciting and audacious. But there are no better hands in which to place this challenge to Danishka Esterhazy, Suzanne Keilly, and the team at Blue Ice Pictures. Their creative vision will both honor the Corman ethos and captivate today’s audiences,” said Brent Haynes, Shout’s Head of Original Content Development.

The original Slumber Party Massacre hit back in 1982. Amy Holden Jones directed from a screenplay penned by Rita Mae Brown. Check out the trailer and synopsis below.
