Movie Review: Slasher Party (2019)
Synopsis: A group of social media influencers attend an exclusive after party at a mansion only to discover they have been lured into a trap by a mask-wearing killer.
Review: I was getting a little bit bored with watching reruns yesterday evening and convinced my wife to watch a slasher movie with me instead. I picked this film mostly because the bad guy looked kind of cool. Unfortunately, it turned out not to be worth our time.
There are very few "good" slasher movies out there, especially those made after the 1980s and, for the most part, I've found it's best to just grade the genre on a curve. Even with doing that, this movie was failure.
The biggest problem with this movie is there is just way too much filler, most of which is drug related. For a while, we were beginning to wonder if anyone was going to get murdered and, when it finally happened, had to wait for what seemed like an eternity for the next death. I was honestly beginning to wonder why the murderer even bothered locking the doors. The delays make even less sense when the movie explains the motive behind the killings.
Also not helping this movie were the unlikable characters. None of the movie's victims had anything even remotely redeemable about them. Call me old fashioned, but I think the killer in a slasher flick should be the bad guy, he (or she) shouldn't be performing a community service, even if the movie is trying to be more funny than scary.
Final Opinion: This movie was a total waste of our time. I would not recommend it and hope Danny Trejo fired his agent.
My Grade: F
