It's all cheese, but at least this cheese, for the most part, doesn't stink.

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

Sisters are doing it for themselves in this jolly college horror flick - if by "it" you mean horrible slaughter and softcore nudity.

A booty-shakin', text-messagin', Facebook-referencin' multiplex moneyspinner for undemanding twenty-first-century teens.

Perhaps because of its status as an overused commercial gimmick to get '80s adolescents into movie theaters, the slasher film has lost most of its luster. Sorority Row won't restore it, but it also won't tarnish it further.

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.

Imagine being trapped inside a pungent shoebox with the over-caffeinated morning shift of Forever 21 while an inept epileptic captures the small talk with a camera he lost the instruction manual for. That's Sorority Row.

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.

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.

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.

Sorority Row proves to be just another crass slasher movie, recycling familiar ingredients to diminishing effect.

It is so close to achieving above-trashy status that it's even more disappointing when it sinks in that nothing you've seen makes sense.
