House on Sorority Row- Horror Movie Review (Day 12 of 31)- October Massacre

PLOT: A sorority prank goes horribly wrong, resulting in a tragic death. Rather than going to the authorities, the nubile, young sisters decide to keep quiet and continue with the big party they have planned for that night. Suffice to say, someone takes issue with their spoiled behavior and before you can say, “Theti-pi, sister-pi”, the bodies begin to pile up!

REVIEW: House on Sorority Row may be one of the lesser known slashers born from the early 1980’s, but it’s also one of the way better ones. It basically follows the typical structure of most slashers: large group of hot babes just waiting to be off-ed, an unseen killer, partying, a hint of mystery, and a few laughs sprinkled in. What separates this one from the rest is that it also has a brain. Believe it or not, there’s a pretty tight story wrapped around this little bitch.

I’m a big fan of the “past comes back to haunt” device that often drives many a horror slasher. Sorority Row takes a hint of this and does a cool, surprising job runningn with it. Along the way, we are treated to some nicely grisly, non-CGI kills and organic screams. As a bonus, the acting on display is way better than average as well! From the old fart house mother, to the bitchy leader chick, to the eventual final girl, nearly every performance is believable and well-played. We are also treated to a wonderful, eerie score and a finale that is sure to creep out a first-time viewer.

BEST TNA SCENE: As the hot house leader bitch, Eileen Davidson kindly graces us with her ta-tas as she’s about to do da nasty with her boyfriend on her waterbed. Cowabunga!

BEST GORE BIT: Tough call, but I’m going to have to go with a severed sorority girl's head in a toilet. Thanks to the practical effects, it’s pretty shocking and gross.

HALLOWEEN DRINKING GAME: Take a shot or drink every time:

You hear a creepy lullaby-sounding tune.

A sorority girl does or says something bitchy.

Someone goes in the pool.



Extra Tidbit: There actually is a modern remake of this flick titled simply Sorority Row (and damn, is it horrible!).
