Slumber Party Massacre remake acquired by SyFy

Shout! Studios’ remake of Amy Holden Jones’ classic 1982 genre classic “Slumber Party Massacre” is headed to SyFy.

According to Deadline, the Danishka Esterhazy-directed flick, starring Hannah Gonera, Frances Sholto-Douglas, Mila Rayne, Alex McGregor and Reze-Tiana Wessels, will premiere on the small-screen later this year.

The news comes after Shout! acquired the New Horizon Picture library, which encompasses 270 Roger Corman films.

“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 film’s plot is under lock-and-key but the trade says it’ll be a “reimagining” of the original.
