SORORITY ROW

Ah remakes, those pesky little things they just keep on popping up on us. Well this one is a few years old but still I think you know what I mean. This of course is a remake from the slasher pic "House on Sorority Road" and is not all bad. I went into this expecting another horrible film and came out kinda liking it. Now it is not a classic and I don't think you will find anything new here, but it is ok.

From the title I bet you can guess this is college related and is about none other than a sorority. Yes indeed I know that is a shock but that is what it is about. And like any good horror flick it is about a group of females, you know what that means. You guessed right kiddies, lots of blood, death, and naked girls; I know it doesn't sound that bad. The film follows a group of sorority sisters that play a prank, said prank goes wrong and a fellow sister is dead. Of course from there the "ladies" and the prank victim decide that they should dump the body as not to ruin any graduation plans and life after school. The leader of this group is particularly all about image and not going to jail, that makes her kinda fun.

Time goes by and it is graduation time which of course means party time, why not, you only killed a so called "sister". So like any good teenish horror flick a killer pops up and knows what these girls have done. Will the killer go to the police with the information, no silly, said person would not be named killer for no reason. So the girls start to get threatening texts and videos and stuff to their phones. This of course only leads to multiple deaths in various ways.

Now I have to say one thing first off, I could never take a killer seriously if they started texting me. I am not a texter and refuse to read them when some one sends me one, therefore I wouldn't even know there was a killer after me. If some one has something to tell me then they can call me. Any way as for the deaths this is a pretty good flick but everything else is your typical new age horror flick. I will say that the first part of this film is really good. The build up to the prank and the entire prank scene are really well done, and the aftermath at the scene is just as strong if not stronger. Everything after that is just your typical flare.

The acting is everything you would expect from this type of film, which is good because that is what this type of film calls for. The leader of the sorority is wonderfully evil here, especially in the aftermath scene of the prank. Any way this is a good enough flick for a rental I would guess and who knows you may like it better than me. Was this a classic, no, but was it fun, yes.
