“Thrills, chills, guitars, and drills!”
Revving from its slumber five years later, the only female written and directed slasher film franchise returns louder than ever.
Courtney has nightmares about a power drill-wielding maniac who terrorized her sexually repressed sister years ago.
Hoping to clear her mind, she and members of her all-girl rock band rent a condo to play some music and party hard.
However, Courtney’s nightmares spill into reality as the driller killer returns, looking to make some noise.
Continuing with the original film’s feminist slant, director Deborah Brock keeps things fun while slyly dissecting the slasher genre obsession with virginal purity and fear of penetration (via the metaphorical phallic drill bit). (James Branscome)
