182: Sorority Row

Sorority Row (R) - 2009 - Runtime: 101 minutes
Starring: Rumer Willis, Carrie Fisher, Briana Evigan
Director: Stewart Hendler

This movie delivers exactly what it promises. This isn't made for the oscars, nor to please critics, but I had a lot of fun watching each sister get offed. It has it's fair share of suspense and the kills are actually pretty good - they're not too gory but they're not tame, either. And despite a few flaws, it's definitely worth seeing.

So the basic premise is that the sorority girls decide to pull a prank on a cheating boyfriend. And it goes horribly wrong because the douchebag boyfriend decides to actually kill her for no good reason. They decide to make a pact to not tell anyone - but at the end of the school year, someone decides to get revenge on all the girls. It's pretty cut and dry - but like I said, the best parts of the movie are the kills. I was mad they killed the most interesting sister first - because, well, she seemed like she had more depth than the other girls. Especially when the rest of them fill most stereotypical sorority sister roles: the ethnic, the dork, the cheerleader, the sporty one. But none of those cliches really matter because the movie is kind of winking back at the audience. And I will be honest, I really didn't know who the killer was until the reveal.

Despite all it's flaws, it's a good horror movie that will keep you in suspense (and you get to see some nudity! Hooray for boobies!) and you don't have to invest too much time or effort into watching it. Maggie and I enjoyed it for what it is and you should too!

Rating: Rent It!
