First off it’s strictly a rental type of film, it never should have seen the inside of a theater. But, if you’re looking for a quick stop at the Redbox or an instant view on Netflix, then this is actually pretty good.
As you probably know this is remake of the 1983 film The House on Sorority Row. Only difference is the original was before we all lived through the awful bullshit Jennifer Love Hewitt I Know What You blah, blah, blah. So, the storyline is a bore at this point. Kill someone, make pact, end of dead anyway. You know that.
The reason why the HF is saying it’s better than you thought is because of the kills. Yes, the saving grace for this movie are the creative kills, I mean shoving a bottle down the drunken girl’s throat — fun! Also, watch for the overused bitchy girl character, I really enjoyed her. Not sure what that says about me. Of course there’s the twist, a pretty meh twist, but a valiant effort nonetheless. Princess Lia makes a nice appearance in this, she’s been eating. But, I like Carrie Fisher, she’s like a drunken old aunt who you only bring out for the holidays. Sorority Row, see it.
It’s available on DVD right now. Thoughts, groans, moans.
