By the numbers drive-in flick
9 June 2008 | by (north dakota) – See all my reviews

When a sorority initiation ritual ends in murder the five surviving sisters go their separate ways. Seven years pass and they are all invited to a secluded mansion, complete with a ten-foot high electric fence surrounding the estate, by an unknown host. They are escorted to the estate by two guys, one horny and the other bright, and are then dispatched one by one by the father of the sorority pledge they accidentally murdered seven years ago.

This film plays like a drive-in slasher flick but lacks all the exploitative ingredients that define the drive-in classics. There is absolutely no gore and very little skin. The death scenes are boring and borderline ludicrous, but I enjoy subtlety when cinema deaths are the main course - too often film-goers need to see things take place since they are incapable of using their imagination. That being said, this 70's slasher does justice to its PG rating. Also, look for the boom mic being visible at the pool scene when Cheri Howell tells the two guys to drift.

VIOLENCE: $$ (Like I mentioned before, the violence is tame. There is a strangling, stabbing and an electrocution and a guy gets attacked by a vicious canine - which somehow wasn't noticed the first day of the party. Every dog that I've ever come across has a tendency to bark when strangers are in its midst - but not this pooch).

STORY: $$$ (A by-the-numbers script becomes extremely convoluted at the end when a series of twists take place. These twists give the viewer the inclination that the script was rewritten ninety times on set. Character development was actually quite solid for the genre. The story painted a decent picture of how the girls lived their lives after the murder. Two of the girls became success stories, at least financially, one became a hippie, the fourth a wayward hitchhiker and the fifth, who was the least defined, a woman with irritable bowels).

NUDITY: $ (All you get here is a side view of Claudia Jennings as she changes into a bikini - nothing more).

ACTING: $$$ (The acting was quite good for the genre as well. Par for the course, Claudia Jennings shines as Judy, the pledge who was seated beside the murdered girl. Cheri Howell does the best job, one of only a handful of films the raven-haired beauty was ever in. She was perfect in her role as the calculating, cold-as-ice Sylvia. Sherry Boucher did a decent job as the hitchhiker and Joe Tata, as the dude with a raging libido, also gave a good performance. Carr, as Tata's partner was good too but Howell gets the nod for best performance).
