Decent early 80s’ slasher with some script flaws
RELEASED IN 1983 and written & directed by Mark Rosman Stoller, “The House on Sorority Row” chronicles events at a sorority house outside of Baltimore where seven girls responsible for an accidental death start dying one by one during their graduation party.
The film borrows elements from “Black Christmas” (1974) and the French horror “Diabolique” (1955), like the unused swimming pool to conceal a body that later disappears. The first act is quite good, particularly the accidental death scene, which is well-acted for no-name actresses. Only two of the seven went on to a career in acting: The protagonist who plays Katie (Kate McNeil) and the slutty girl, Vicky (Eileen Davidson). Speaking of the girls, they present a realistic feminine smorgasbord with Morgan (Jodi Draigie) arguably being the most attractive. None of them, however, are anything to go gaga over (looks-wise, that is).
What marred the film for me was the dubious writing. For instance, wouldn’t the girls be perplexed at how a dead body mysteriously made it to the attic? What caused it to suddenly fall down the trap door? Why don’t any of the girls look at the face of the corpse to verify its identity? Would a couple of girls who know very little about guns seriously enact a prank using a questionable mixture of bullets and blanks? If you can get past these issues, “The House on Sorority Row” is a decent early 80s’ slasher with a worthy plot and pretty good production values.
THE MOVIE RUNS 1 hour 31 minutes and was shot at Eltonhead Mansion in Pikesville, Maryland, with establishing shots done at University of Maryland, College Park. ADDITIONAL WRITER: Bobby Fine.
Has its moments I guess but nothing that really stands out other than a couple creepy shots. The performances are basic for this genre (though Akthryn McNeil was fine in the lead) while the kills are forgettable (just girls getting killed over and over using a cane). The twist also wasn’t all that surprising either. Eh, it’s fine however doubtful I’d ever revisit. **3.0/5**
A nifty little early 80’s college-set slasher flick
The seven lady members of the Theta Pi Sorority accidentally kill their overbearing shrew of a house mother Ms. Slater (a memorably huffy Lois Kelsa Hunt) and try to dispose of her body by hiding it in a filthy old pool. Unbeknownst to the girls, Ms. Slater has a hideously malformed son named Erik (the creepy Charles Serio) who doesn’t take the news of his mother’s untimely death too well. In fact, Erik proceeds to exact a harsh and bloody revenge on the girls by bumping them off in assorted gruesome ways. While it’s admittedly routinely plotted and predictable, this cool little slasher feature still makes the cut thanks to Mark Rosman’s stylish and assured direction, a respectable body count of nine, several gory kill scenes (said murders include an iron rod in the torso, a steak knife in the neck, and a cane whacking to the head), sound acting from a capable cast, Richard Band’s splendidly eerie and elegant orchestral score, a smidgen of gratuitous nudity (the luscious blonde looker Eileen Davidson is notable in this department as the slutty Vicki), a reasonable amount of tension, Timothy Suhrstedt’s lush, handsome cinematography, and a few inventive oddball touches (a severed head in the toilet, the heroine confronting the killer while tripping on hallucinogenic drugs). Moreover, this film warrants extra praise for departing from the slasher norm by not presenting the main female characters as your usual innocent lambs brought to the slaughter; instead these gals bring what happens upon themselves. Above average of its type and well worth checking out for fans of 80’s slice’n’dice low-budget horror flicks.
