Horror recommendations update: skimpy SLUMBER PARTY and classic HALLOWEEN

FilmEdge has updated our Halloween Film Fest 2010 viewing list with two new additions: the Roger Corman Cult Classics three-movie THE SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE Collection is designed for devotees of this rather silly sexploitation franchise; followed by a perennial FilmEdge favorite, John Carpenter’s taut, genre-defining thriller HALLOWEEN now available on High Definition Blu-ray.

Of course Carpenter’s original proto-slasher horror hit from 1978 inspired the 1982 Corman-produced SLUMBER PARTY satire of the genre, marketed as the first “feminist” slasher movie though this is a highly dubious claim given the titillating title and results.  In contrast, HALLOWEEN’s suburban mythology of killer Michael Myers terrorizing a small town still has audiences squirming under layers of dramatic tension and subconscious fears.

But the Halloween season and horror genre in general is traditionally a time for cheap thrills and dreadful nightmares howling under the autumn moon. Sometimes fans want a sumptuous, terrifying feast, and other times they crave a decadent snack to satisfy their cinematic sweet tooth. FilmEdge reviews the whole horrifying menu for you in our Halloween Film Fest, now served online at our website.  Bon appetit!
