Reviews [click links to read more]:

Monster Party has a morbid energy that keeps you interested despite all of its problems. Unfortunately, this is a horror film without interesting characters or satisfying kills which makes for a very dull experience. Do not accept this party invitation.” Bloody Disgusting

“While I hated the characters immensely, I do have to give writer/director Chris Von Hoffmann props for creating a script that’s original, complex, gory and capable of pulling emotions from the audience – even if it’s not the right emotions.” Horror Society
