Any film that trashes the talent of Carrie Fisher is a loser in my book and this one stomps up and down on her talent. Don't worry Carrie, I still remember Leia.

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.

Retitled this to I Know What You Did at That Sorority Party with That Tire Iron.

little more than an unconscious projection of the filmmakers' simultaneous desire for and deep fear of grotesquely overprivileged and snarky girls gone wild

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.

Satirical shadings can't save sorority slasher schlock.

In a generation, Carrie Fisher has moved from Jabba the Hut to a job at the Pizza Hut - with plenty of extra cheese.

I'd rather see an honest film about exactly what would happen if they'd told the truth. Failing that, a competent, scary, witty horror film might've been nice.

A satire made for cult rediscovery, just change the tagline to "In the foam, no one can hear you scream."

It seems to be the most original slasher movie of the year, quite a fete considering it's a remake.

Before seeing Sorority Row, I couldn't imagine that any slasher film released this year could possibly be more misogynistic than either the Friday the 13th reboot or Donkey Punch.

On the plus side, Sorority Row gets an A for the dead-on casting, snarky, biting dialogue, and outrageous death scenes.

Worse even that its insipid script (co-written by Josh Stolberg and Peter Goldfinger) is Elliot Greenberg's editing of a meandering slasher pic notable only for the number of nubile bare breasts that it manages to fit into nearly every other scene.

Given its spunky, sexy, funny, spirited and bitchy heroines... could have been a lot sharper and a lot more fun.

Initially intriguing, thrilling and suspenseful with impressive production values, but it eventually sinks into an unintentionally funny and insipid mess while insulting the audience's intelligence.
