Above-average 70s B-movie thriller.
14 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sisters of Death, is a 70s horror film. Only the monsters in the film, aren't creatures. They're humans, with twisted ulterior motives, and intentions of brutal vengeance.

The plot revolves around a reunion of the 'Sisters', a group of young women who formed the Sisters Sorority at their school. Several years before their reunion, one of the Sisters was killed during an initiation rite, which involved a game of Russian Roulette.

After this tragedy, the other Sisters get on with their lives, without really keeping in close contact with one another. A few years pass. Then the surviving Sisters, all get written invitations to participate in a reunion. None of them can figure out who sent these invitations, or why.

The invitations instruct them to meet-up at a central location. Once there, the Sisters are approached by two men. The men explain to the Sisters, that they are there to take them to the exact location of the reunion. They claim that they're doing this, because it's a job that they were paid by someone else to do.

Once there, the Sisters all see a welcoming banner, and a huge buffet of food and wine. The place is a seemingly empty, gorgeous mansion. Just one thing seems really weird-the place is closed off from the outside, by a tall electric fence.

The Sisters all enjoy the food and drinks the first day, and catch-up on old times. They do have an underlying unease, about the deserted old mansion though. And whoever sent the reunion invitations leaves them all bewildered, trying to figure out who it was.

Soon, the Sisters go into high-alert-mode, after they start getting killed-off, one-by-one. Turns out that they were invited to the mansion, by the father of the Sister who got killed during the initiation. And he's hell-bent, on avenging what he believes to be his daughter's murder.

The film seethes with a spine-tingling tension, as each Sister tries to avoid becoming the next murder victim. The movie does get bogged-down, in excessive melodrama. But over-the-top theatrics, was the signature of 70s B movies, like this one. And this is just what made these films, such a guilty pleasure to watch.

The performances were mainly mediocre. Except for the riveting performance by Paul Franz, as the deranged, vengeful father. Claudia Jennings as Judy, also stood-out amongst the rest of the cast. In this film, Claudia was only a supporting character. But, she manages to steal every scene she's in.

Nail-biting suspense and surprising plot-twists, make Sisters of Death an above-average slice of 70s film-cheese. I've seen better horror dramas, and I've seen worse. But this movie will do just fine, for fans of low-budget, 70s damsels-in-distress films.
