The Halo-8 studio film, “Slumber Party Slaughterhouse,” will premiere Oct. 23 at the Engine Theatre in Hollywood. “Lets gorehounds fulfill their deepest, darkest fantasies” is how the Video Business Magazine review described it.
Slumber Party Slaughterhouse will also be screening in New York and Philadelphia theaters.
The film follows Paul Tard, a geek killed on the eve of his high school graduation by his friend’s greed. Paul's friends are throwing a graduation party with hookers and drugs, and after dying, Paul sells his soul to a demon in exchange for the power to take revenge on his former friends.
The film involves crowd interaction, as whenever Paul wants to kill one of his friends, the demon asks a horror movie trivia question and the film dissolves to a multiple choice menu. If the audience chooses the correct answer, Paul gets the power to kill his ex-friend — and the friend's hooker, to tie up those pesky loose ends — but the wrong answer will send Paul to hell unavenged.
Each "killscene" in the film is written and directed by a different Halo-8 filmmaker who specialize in trivia, film, porn, horror or comedy. Admission is $10.
