Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: It's yet another '80s slasher remake, so you know the drill...er, the tire iron pimped out with blades.
- Aaron Hillis, Time Out New York, Wednesday, September 16, 2009
Rotten: 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.

Cast: Jamie Chung, Rumer Willis, Audrina Patridge, Carrie Fisher, Briana Evigan, Matt O'Leary, Matt Lanter, Margo Harshman, Julian Morris, Leah Pipes Director: Stewart Hendler Summary: When a prank results in the accidental death of a Theta Pi sister, the sorority's members keep the crime under wraps. But as graduation rolls around, a masked killer begins stalking and slaying the girls responsible for the death. Someone is out for revenge, but who could know about their dirty little secret? My Thoughts: "Typical in all aspects, but I really liked the style of some of the killings and the cattiness of the girls. The smart-ass remarks from Cassidy and Jessica was entertaining. But the film failed to scare me or to even make me jump. The killings happened quite fast, and there just wasn't enough blood and gore for it to be a slasher. Big disappointment for me."

"Well, to the bitches of Theta Pi, I'm saying farewell." When a couple of members of a sorority pull a mean-spirited prank, one of them ends up dead. The others cover up the incident in order to not ruin their own bright futures. But a few months later they find out that someone knows about what they did, and they're angry about it. Angry enough to kill. Sorority Row is nothing more than another slasher flick where lots of hot chicks get picked off one by one. And it's not a particularly good one, either. Some of the kills are a little cool/creative, but the movie is only entertaining sporadically, and the final reveal of the killer and their motive is outright ridiculous. As are many of the decisions made by the characters. The movie is also far too long, and spends too much time in the inconsequential lives of characters that are kill fodder. If this is on tv and you have a desire to see a bunch of sorority cliches of varying bitchiness get killed, and you really have nothing better to do, it's not a complete waste of time. Just keep your expectations suitably low when it comes to scares, T&A, cleverness, and anything else that the best movies in the genre do so well.
