The starting budget was US $125,000. The film's total budget would end up at being about US $300,000. The production had already gone over budget during preproduction and it was a cousin of director Mark Rosman who came up with enough funding to continue shooting. See more »

The House on Sorority Row is one of the better tales of vengeance in the slasher genre.
Sorority girls pull a prank on their house mother, only for her to end up dead and the girls left in a world of trouble. They believe they have covered up the crime, but when night falls someone begins to seek murderous revenge against the sorority sisters. Questions abound, but will anyone be left alive to answer them?
Between director Mark Rosman and a decent cast, this low-budget horror tale rises above many of it's kind. Rosman makes the most of the filming locations while nicely adding stylistic touches to the film with good camera work and some nice imagery. He creates some truly effective moments of psychological horror, as well as physical (with some occasional bloody moments). Ultimately the film manages to build to some good suspense and a claustrophobic finale! Also of note is the lavishly wonderful music score, which provides some beautiful and haunting themes for the film.
A worthy (and under exposed) horror outing for genre fans! Check it out.
