Sorority House Massacre (1986)

Another ripoff of a ripoff slasher from the 80's. This one is usually blamed for ripping off Halloween but pretty much every slasher ripped off Halloween to a certain extent. I think it rips movies like House On Sorority Row (1983) or better yet Slumber Party Massacre (1982) a bit more. The funny thing is that both of these genre films are way better then the one were looking at here, So forget about Halloween. Sorority House Massacre really doesn't have much going for it. Its just your typical slasher and it lacks a bit in the gore department. The story is basically about a girl who has some sort of telepathic connection with a murderer and the murderer of course finds her in the Sorority House that shes staying at and kills off her friends one by one. They are supposed to be brother and sister but the truth is I didn't care enough about the retarded cast to give a shit about the plot. The movie has a body count of eleven and two of the murders are off screen. There was only really two murder scenes that I thought were pretty cool. One was a semi nasty stab through a girls bare chest and the other was a knife through the back of a mans neck, through the front. Other then that we got some gratuitous nudity, especially during a scene where the girls decide to try on clothes together. Other then that we got a bunch of bad 80's haircuts and big shoulder pads. Over all Sorority House Massacre is just another slasher and not a very good one at that.
