Slumber Party Massacre II is a 1987 slasher film directed by Deborah Brock, produced by Roger Corman, and starring Crystal Bernard. As a loosely-based sequel to The Slumber Party Massacre, the film follows an adult Courtney, from the first film, as she and her friends in a rock band are attacked by a supernatural killer with a power-drilled guitar.
Courtney, the younger sister of the "new girl across the street" in the first film, is all grown up now, but suffers from nightmares from the events from the first film. She and the other members of her female rock group go to a condo for the weekend to play music and have fun with their boyfriends. Courtney dreams about her sister, who is in a mental institution, warning her about the killer, and the dreams begin to spill into real life, threatening Courtney and her friends.
The film ends with Courtney (being the only survivor) being confronted by the killer, but she manages to kill him by setting him on fire with a torch lighter. The next day, paramedics are seen carrying Amy[clarification needed] on a stretcher. When Courtney checks on her, Amy's eyes suddenly open and she starts evilly laughing in the killer's voice. Courtney wakes up in her room, only then realizing it was a nightmare the whole time. She then makes out with her boyfriend, who is revealed to be the killer. Courtney wakes up from her nightmare locked up like her sister was and screaming profusely as a drill bursts through the floor, indicating that the nightmare isn't over yet.

The Camp Blood review felt the film made up in weirdness what it lacked in "coherence, suspense, and production value". It has a small cult following among slasher fans.
