''Slumber Party Massacre II'' is a supernatural SlasherMovie released in 1987.

The film follows Courtney Bates, who was one of the survivors of [[Film/TheSlumberPartyMassacre the previous film]]. She is now a member in an all-girl rock group, who decide to take the weekend off by having a SlumberParty in an estate belonging to the rich father of one of them.

Courtney also suffers from nightmares and hallucinations of a leather-clad rockabilly who is armed with an electric guitar with a built-in power-drill. Despite the visions of her sister trying to warn her about the guy, the rockabilly eventually steps into the real world and starts killing everyone.
