Three gorgeous babes decide to join a sorority, and a whole bunch of horny guys dump bees in the sorority's back yard where a bunch of girls are naked in the outside hot tub so when the girls jump out the boys use a video camera to take lots of shots of them. Their house mother gets talked into letting the girls have a hazing party in a forbidden frat house, and when she goes there to make sure the place is safe, she first stops at a handy grave in the front yard to explain to 'Allan' why she's letting the girls use the house, and tells him that it was all an accident and it's time for him to just let it go. Allan doesn't answer her, since he's dead. Or is he?

Prior to release, MGM cut bloody details from almost every on-screen murder in the film. Just before its release American horror magazine Fangoria published photos of the numerous death scenes pruned from the final cut. These scenes have not been restored back into the film. See more »
Killer Party isn't going to win any awards for strong plotting. To be frank, the movie doesn't make a lick of sense. Within the first 5 minutes, we've had a zombie movie and a rock music video fused together and by the end of the film, we've added a Porky's clone, a slasher flick, and demonic possession movie into the mix as well.
One can't help wondering if the studio executives to the pages of several different scripts stuck together and just decided to make that movie instead. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. Killer Party is a total blast and it's certainly never predictable. You're never sure what genre or subgenre the next scene will wallow in.
The three female leads are an interesting and agreeable bunch who you don't mind spending a little time with, so that helps keep things a little bit more cohesive than they should be. Paul Bartel even gets a fun cameo!
Killer Party may be a lot of things (it certainly tries to be), but it's never boring.
