Female Trouble. An amazing selection of iconic chillers by female directors will be playing all night in The Electra continuing with this cult slasher that began the first horror film series in history directed exclusively by women.
When Trish decides to invite her friends over for a slumber party, she has no idea the night is going to end with an unexpected guest as an escaped mental patient with a power drill decides to crash the party.
Originally written as a parody of slashers it was filmed as a straightforward horror film making a darkly humorous horror flick told at a breathtaking pace filled with blood, and also laughs both intended and unintended.
Close your eyes for a second... and sleep forever.
