Sorority Row (2009) - Rotten Tomatoes

Sorority Row (2009)



Critic Consensus: Though it's slick and stylish, Sorority Row offers nothing new to the slasher genre and misses the mark both in its attempts at humor and thrills.

Movie Info

A sorority prank gone wrong leads to a bloody murder spree in this slasher film featuring Rumer Willis, Audrina Patridge, and Carrie Fisher. It was supposed to be a practical joke, but no one was laughing after a girl in the prime of her life had been accidentally murdered. Desperate to go on with their lives and avoid taking responsibility for their actions, the surviving sisters and their male accomplice agree to dump the body and never speak of the incident again. Just after graduation, however, a mysterious killer begins stalking everyone who harbors the bloody secret, leading the survivors to fight for their lives against a masked maniac with a deadly modus operandi.more

It's yet another '80s slasher remake, so you know the, the tire iron pimped out with blades.

Call me the sarcastic sister, but the only thing screaming in any convincing way here are the cheap look, epileptic direction, and off-key, "edgy" humor.

By the time the killer's identity is finally revealed you'll be amazed at how screenwriters make big bucks penning lines like, "Who the hell lit the house on fire? Shit!"

This is a movie so formulaic it could have been written by Microsoft Excel.

Typical slasher film packed with boobs, boys, booze and blood. Go into Sorority Row with your brain on cruise control and just enjoy the movie for what it is: a gore party.

Like the all-partying, all-screaming sisters of Theta Pi, Sorority Row feels doomed from the first frame.

Audience Reviews for Sorority Row

It's like the writer took different horror movie scripts put them all together and end up with a non scary ,predictable,annoying and boring result .And among all those people who died in this flick ,so did originality.

Director: Stewart Hendler

Summary: When a prank results in the accidental death of a Theta Pi sister, the sorority's members keep the crime under wraps. But as graduation rolls around, a masked killer begins stalking and slaying the girls responsible for the death. Someone is out for revenge, but who could know about their dirty little secret?

My Thoughts: "Typical in all aspects, but I really liked the style of some of the killings and the cattiness of the girls. The smart-ass remarks from Cassidy and Jessica was entertaining. But the film failed to scare me or to even make me jump. The killings happened quite fast, and there just wasn't enough blood and gore for it to be a slasher. Big disappointment for me."
