House On Sorority Row (1983)
I'm not sure why I decided to revisit this flick. Maybe it was the remake or I saw an ad for the remake coming out on DVD, but I decided that it was time to wing my way back to the 80's to see what the girls at the House On Sorority row were up to.
The basics are simple. A domineering house mother clashes with a the slutty girl of the sorority because she wants to hold a party after the house is supposed to be closed up for the summer. It ends with the house mother shot and dead in the crummy pool that the sorority girls refuse to swim in.
That is until the body disappears and the girls start dropping like flies.
Back in the day if it was a slasher flick I saw it. That was the rule. Slasher flicks from the 80's are still one of my favorite time wasters.
Yeah, then I rewatched this thing. Lifting freely from the Friday The 13th plot, which usually wouldn't bother me, but this flick has one big minus sign;
All the girls have the biggest asses I have ever seen in my life. They try to play that these girls are hot, but, Man! These are some girls with a definite overload of junk in the trunk. I mean a lot of junk!
That being said, it comes across as one of the lesser of the slasher genre. It is a little light on story, there is some gore, but not enough and, thankfully, the nudity is kept to a minimum.
Sure, the chicks in the remake are gonna be hot, but this was here first so, it deserves its place in movie history.
Here's a trailer for ya.
