Smart , sassy and fun remake
26 September 2014 | by (Sacramento, California) – See all my reviews

Sorority Row is far better than it needs to be.

Complete with solid acting, a sharp and witty screenplay, and clever, well-shot death scenes, Sorority Row will not disappoint.

Like all above average slasher films, this one begins with a moral dilemma: 6 best friends and senior sorority sisters perform a prank at their back to school bash, and it ends in accidental murder. They decide to forge the ultimate sisterhood pact to keep the event a secret, forever changing their relationships with one another.

Cut to 8 months later, it is graduation time, and their secret has suddenly started to resurface, coming to a head at the end of the year party, where each girls true colors and allegiances shine through. It has your basic setup: pretty girls stalked by a cloaked figure, ending in a climax at a drunken, out of control party.

The girls are, for the most part, well cast and utterly watchable. The stand out performances here are Leah Pipes and Briana Evigan as the two alpha females of the group, who face-off in a battle of the wits. Evigan plays Cassidy, the smart and uncompromising rebel of the group, hellbent on making things right. Pipes plays Jessica, the manipulative, control freak president of the sorority, who's fear of the discovery of this secret could cost her everything, including her Abercrombie-looking boyfriend, who happens to be a prospective senators son. Jamie Chung is sweet and gorgeous as the pushover of the group. And Margo Harshman steals every scene she's in, playing Chuggs, the resident pill-popping party girl of the group. Harshman gives the film almost all of it's much needed comic relief.

As for Rumer Willis and Audrina Patridge...sigh. I have to give Willis a certain amount of credit for her role as Ellie, the bookworm. This was her debut film performance, and she isn't terrible., however she doesn't have the chops to carry off some of the more emotionally complex scenes her character has to sob through. Audrina Patridge, who garnered fame playing herself in the reality show The Hills, barely has three lines in the film. One can suspect that her role had to be severely reduced once she arrived on set, and couldn't bring even an ounce of personality or charisma to her two dead eyes.

The screenplay offers some really good scenes for the girls to play out, some funny zingers, and some quiet moments of true emotion. The film allows for more character development than I've seen in any slasher movie since Scream.

The direction is slick, and the photography is dazzling, complete with a few thrilling and creative death scenes, which is part of the reason us horror film lovers go to these silly movies.

In a land full of boring and bland horror remakes, this one is smart and fast paced, and perhaps, better than the original.
