Are you going to play the game? Lucie’s birthday started out as an “innocent” party filled with binge drinking and pill popping, until one of the guests gives Lucie a Ouija Board.

Twisted Weekend 3: Slacker Holocaust begins as a simple story of a group of college friends looking to spend a weekend getting loaded. Meet Lucie, the angry artist; Violet, her goodie-goodie roommate; their gay friend, Morris; their party animal fraternity boy neighbor, Bobby; and the burnouts, Chuck and Joe. Their names may be different, but you know this group. You’ve met them, you went to college with them…hey, you may even be one of them.


The movie opens with Lucie’s birthday – a comical spoof on an excessive binging weekend filled with liquor, drugs and sex. Things really get twisted though, when a mysterious gift appears and the evening ends in a drunken game of Ouija. As if this group didn’t have enough to worry about with the hangovers facing them in the morning, our killer, “Art,” reprises his role in this third installment of the Twisted Weekend series and begins to take their souls…

    So scarey, I jumped!!

    A brilliant combination of both horror and comedy, tho one may outweigh the other. From the groovy music to the flying cat to the M.C. Hammer pants, you never knew what was going to happen next. But whatever it was, it was always entertaining. I laughed through almost the entire movie, but I must admit, I did jump at one point. That is a true sign of a good horror flick!

    Much Better than Blair Witch!!!!

    If Blair Witch was a phenomenon; the Twisted Weekend series is a paradigm shift…to the REALLY funny, satirical horror flick…where brilliance and whit supercede the need for slick production techniques and $20 million actors.

    I’m so scared!!!!

    Great job! I found it hilarious and scary at the same time!

    Quite Disturbing…..

    Perfect for the 80’s slasher/horror flick.
    The opening titles filled you with awe and expectation….
    Only to firmly embed you deep into the dysfunctional minds of some very disturbed college grads. This movie serves as a perfect deterrent for mild alcoholics and drug abusers.

    Wicked… It was really wonderful to see Dave and Brett’s masterpiece on the ‘big screen’. It’s fair to say that with it paid homage to all the purest fundamentals that make any cult classic (cats). It was more than I had ever expected leaving me with only one question…what’s next?

    A gritty send up of todays youth & the horror movie genre. Funny, gross and completely depraved! A cult classic and a must see for the college scene!

    TWIII really brought college life out into the open for the world to see. But for the makers of this film – that just wasn’t enough. No. They had to make matters worse by introducing the occult, evil workings of a demented and DEAD ex-Art student. The writers worked overtime to devise gruesome and creative ways to end the lives of fun-loving and innocent students. I was disturbed by vomit scene as well as the “bowel movement” segment: testement to the outstanding special effects which left me with dry mouth. The movie got off to a great start with a beautiful opening sequence which featured slimy worms and bugs. As with all horror films, it’s the ride that matters and this film delivered with gusto. I enjoyed the experience and can’t wait to see it again.
