The Slumber Party Massacre remake is being described as a contemporary twist-filled reimagining of the 1982 slasher cult classic. It is directed by Danishka Esterhazy (Vagrant Queen) from a script written by Suzanne Keilly (Ash vs. Evil Dead). The film stars Hannah Gonera, Frances Sholto-Douglas, Mila Rayne, Alex McGregor, and Reze-Tiana Wessels.

The project was developed by Shout! Studios after the studio acquired the New Horizon Pictures library, which includes 270 films from executive producer Roger Corman. The remake is executive produced by Brent Haynes, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos, and Jordan Fields. Blue Ice Pictures also boarded the project as producers, reuniting them with Esterhazy.

The original Slumber Party Massacre film was directed by Amy Holden Jones from a script written by Rita Mae Brown, who originally penned the story as a parody of the slasher genre. The film centered around a group of high school seniors as they throw a slumber party while Trish Deveraux’s parents are away. However, their seemingly normal girls’ night unfortunately gets crashed by an escaped serial killer, who uses a power drill to kill his victims.

Even though the film received mixed reviews and a poor box office performance, it still went on to amass quite a large cult following which spawned off two more sequels in 1987 and 1990. It is considered something of a feminist landmark as a slasher film written and directed by women, with many critics insisting that it subverts some of the sexist tropes of the genre.
