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,

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.

Sorority Row is an interminable mess of a film that juggles more characters and undeveloped subplots than it can handle and even manages to bungle the setup.

The tedious flick offers little more than a few scares, and plenty of boobs. And we're not just talking about the cast.

The "scary'' moments are of the sneak-up-on-you-from-behind variety, but there's little suspense.

It lapses into that familiar category of movies that go in for lots of fancy obfuscation along the way only to make its story seem all the more simple, trite and contrived by the finish.

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.

September 29, 2012 Full Review Source:

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.

August 14, 2010 Full Review Source:

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

August 9, 2010 Full Review Source:

...a sporadically watchable yet thoroughly disappointing horror effort that's underwhelming even by the standards of the genre.

Classic horror that follows the old pattern, but it follows it well with creative slashings and a well hidden killer. You could do a lot worse.

Sorority Row can laugh at the fact that it falls in line with genre conventions, but it doesn't excuse how easily it adopts them.

Over-the-top humor tries to mask the problems, that it's not scary and the ending comes complete with a double-reverse-tricked-itself-out-of-coherency reveal of the killer.

I don't know what could make this movie seem dumber. Oh, and it's also a remake of What You Did Last Summer

After these Bratz dolls dump the Corpsey One down a mine shaft, the plot follows, dropping us into dark spaces without any emotional gravitas, real scares, smart twists or even B-movie fun.

The cast list tells the story: It includes such characters as 'Bra-Clad Sister,' 'Slutty Sister' and (for fans of 'The Man Show'?) 'Trampoline Sister.'

Sorority Row is most successful at creating characters even more insufferable than the usual young people who serve as slasher-flick fodder.

A movie that starts with a trampoline pillow-fight and ends with a pile of dead co-eds could have been a misogynistic mess, but Sorority Row is a snappy, bloody blast.

It's Scream minus the wit and verve, with poor Carrie Fisher lost as the cantankerous house mother.

Ruined by Hendler's pointlessly artsy direction, a stab at postmodern snarkiness and an unconscionable 101-minute running time.

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.

Cast: Jamie Chung, Rumer Willis, Audrina Patridge, Carrie Fisher, Briana Evigan, Matt O'Leary, Matt Lanter, Margo Harshman, Julian Morris, Leah Pipes

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."

"Well, to the bitches of Theta Pi, I'm saying farewell."

When a couple of members of a sorority pull a mean-spirited prank, one of them ends up dead. The others cover up the incident in order to not ruin their own bright futures. But a few months later they find out that someone knows about what they did, and they're angry about it. Angry enough to kill.

Sorority Row is nothing more than another slasher flick where lots of hot chicks get picked off one by one. And it's not a particularly good one, either. Some of the kills are a little cool/creative, but the movie is only entertaining sporadically, and the final reveal of the killer and their motive is outright ridiculous. As are many of the decisions made by the characters. The movie is also far too long, and spends too much time in the inconsequential lives of characters that are kill fodder.

If this is on tv and you have a desire to see a bunch of sorority cliches of varying bitchiness get killed, and you really have nothing better to do, it's not a complete waste of time. Just keep your expectations suitably low when it comes to scares, T&A, cleverness, and anything else that the best movies in the genre do so well.
