Description and Preview
After learning he is set to be lobotomized by the staff of the Oak Ridge Memorial Hospital, an extremely volatile mental patient named Mr. Randles (a name only used near the end of the film) somehow sneaks out of his room, and into a supply closet, where he disguises himself as a surgeon, and escapes, leaving a pile of sheets under his blanket to cover his tracks. Wanting revenge on his keeper, one Doctor Sickler, Randles (after murdering a nurse and an orderly at a bus stop near the asylum) begins making his way to the good doctor's house, bloody scalpel in hand.
As the escaped maniac stalks around town, three Northridge High gal pals by the name of Chris, Tracy and Linda (who happens to be Doctor Sickler's daughter) decide to celebrate the start of summer vacation by holding a slumber party at Linda's house, since only her sleepy mother will be home, allowing them to easily sneak in booze, drugs and boys; and said group of boys consists of Chris and Tracy's troublemaker boyfriends, Tommy and Billy, and their less mischievous buddy, Scott, who everyone intends to set up with Linda.
Of course, Mr. Randles happens to crash this slumber party when it gets into full swing, sneaking into the house via a ladder left leaning against a window by the boys, who used it to gain access to the house. Deciding to take his rage out on Doctor Sickler's family and everyone else under his roof, Mr. Randles sets about making sure this is a slumber party no one will forget... because it'll be The Last Slumber Party!
