‘Some people are the death of the party’

Garden Party Massacre is a 2017 comedy horror film written, co-produced, directed by and starring Gregory Blair (Deadly Revisions) alongside Nichole Bagby, Andy Gates, David Leeper and Lise Hart.

A gathering of friends goes seriously awry when an uninvited guest appears. With a pick-axe. And an attitude…


Director/writer Gregory Blair commented: “I love films that successfully walk that line between horror and comedy, whether it’s witty and referential like Scream or giddy low camp like Army of Darkness.”



” …Garden Party Massacre hits all the bloody beats in its brisk 1:10 play time and it uses every moment it has to full effect. The pros – There are a lot of chuckles to be had and when you think you have the movie figured out, you don’t. The Cons – It’s a low budget indie movie. Some of the acting is questionable, but I still had a damn good time watching this flick.” Geek Nerdery

Garden Party Massacre is admittedly not for everyone, especially horror fans that don’t like comedy added to their plate. But, if you do like comedy or satire that pokes fun at different genres, then this is well worth giving a chance. Gregory Blair has crafted a unique take on the slasher subgenre.” The Movie Sleuth

“Blair and company make great use of the house and backyard but the story set up and the actors playing the characters are the gems of this movie. The actors should be proud of what they done because they were simply entertaining and made this typical horror movie into so much more!” Gross Movie Reviews


” …quite simply a hilarious movie! And that’s first and foremost because it finds exactly the right, welcomely old school approach to comedy, putting an emphasis on snappy dialogue and the perfect delivery thereof, on the right performers in the right roles, well-executed physical humour, while avoiding to be too clever for its own good or dumbing it down for cheap laughs.” Mike Haberfelner, Search My Trash
