***May contain some spoilers***
A group of college girls in a sorority house are celebrating the end of the school year. One day before the party, the girls devise a prank against the headmistress of the Sorority Home, Mrs. Slater, but the prank goes terribly wrong and results in Mrs. Slater’s death. The girls wrap her in towels and attempt to hide her at the bottom of the pool, but when strange things start happening, the body is no longer in the pool. One by one, the girls are being hunted by what they believe to be Mrs. Slater or is it?
The blood scenes are campy and the blood itself is bright red which makes it unrealistic. The death scenes are not very believable and somewhat comical. In addition, the camera will often allude to a death scene or cutaway showing the murder weapon or victims face.
The Grave Review
The House on Sorority Row (1982) is a campy 1980s, B-movie that has very little to offer. There are very few, if any, stand out scenes that will make this film memorable. The acting is sub-par and does not add anything to the quality of the film.
As with all 1980s B-Movies, there is some nudity that may be compensating for the bad acting and overly simplistic storyline.
For the following reasons, Grave Reviews gives The House on Sorority Row (1982) one grave out of five graves.
