The House on Sorority Row {1982}

R 1 hr 31 mins Horror

“One of the best films to be released during the slasher boom of the early 1980s.”

Kate! Vicki! Liz! Jeanie! Diane! Morgan! Stevie! These are the women of Theta Chi, who are celebrating graduation with one last mammoth party. And one last mammoth prank. But of course, no prank in a graduation slasher goes off without a hitch. Soon enough, Theta Chi’s finest find themselves up to their necks in stylized bloodshed, non-hits by a New Wave band called 4 Out Of 5 Doctors, and the most exciting severed-head-in-a-toilet gag since TO ALL A GOODNIGHT. Beautifully photographed and filled with excellent performances, THE HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW feels like what would happen if BLACK CHRISTMAS was made in 1983 instead of 1974. This is also one of the few golden age slashers that isn’t driven by testosterone. One more reason to love it.
