"The Last Slumber Party was a 4-year project for AGFA to recreate the entire movie from scratch. The AGFA team reconstructed the film from its original elements--both the negative and VHS tape masters with no script or editing notes to follow. AGFA is proud to bring this underseen DIY 80s slasher to life through the power of preservation." —Joe Ziemba, Creative Director, AGFA

A surreal slasher from the wilds of New Orleans, The Last Slumber Party feels like a YA novel by R.L. Stine that was filtered through a haze of DIY madness. The story follows the foul-mouthed, sex-crazed Chris (played with gusto by Jan Jensen), Tracy, and Linda as they prepare for the ultimate slumber party on their last day of high school. But little do the ladies know that the party is about to be crashed by a maniacal killer with a giant scalpel! Rejecting all forms of logic in favor of a dreamlike mood, lifted scenes from Halloween, and songs by metalheads Firstryke, this is regional horror filmmaking at a magical peak. AGFA is thrilled to rescue The Last Slumber Party from the VHS wasteland with a new restoration from the 16mm camera negative. In the words of Chris: "Let's munch out!"
