Sisters for life... and death.
7 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When five sorority girls inadvertently cause the murder of one of their sisters in a prank gone wrong, they agree to keep the matter to themselves and never speak of it again, so they can get on with their lives. This proves easier said than done, when after graduation a mysterious killer goes after the five of them and anyone who knows their secret...(Summit Entertainment)

I love slasher movies. I have a soft spot for them. As a slasher fan, SORORITY ROW was...decent, but it could have been a lot better. Still, I thought it was enjoyable, although lazy in some points. Let's start with the problems because I'd like to end on a positive note: The script is lazy. There are huge chunks of plot holes throughout the film. As the body count gets bigger, nobody seems to notice anything, even in public places like the shower and kitchen.

The cell phones also do a great job at not working, as always, although I'm kind of annoyed with that cliché at this point. I'm also annoyed by how the characters strike the killer once and turn their backs when they can finish him/her off when s/he goes unconscious. That bothered me a lot. I also felt that the third act went way too long. Lastly, when the killer is finally revealed, the motive for the whole thing sucked. Actually, was there really a motive? I don't remember one. It was some babbling that sounded like one. Oh, well.

With the obvious script problems, there were some good things that actually came out of this movie. First of all, I liked the characters, even though some of them were really bitchy. Leah Pipes plays the bitchiest character you'll ever see in a film. I kid you not, this girl said some of the most cold and low lines that will leave you stunned. However, she's the best part in the film. You can't believe what she's saying yet she felt like a comedic genius! Pipes played the character really, really well and her delivery of her lines is brilliant! Briana Evigan and Rumer Willis, although not quite as good, are sympathetic in their roles. Carrie Fisher also stars in a cameo appearance who was great in her BAMF role with her big rifle. Everyone else was sufficient.

There's also some suspense in here as well. There's an underlying excitement going on when a character is about to be killed off, which is why I love slashers so much. The film also managed to make bubbles feel threatening and scary, a feat hard to pull off, I'd imagine. Technically, the film is stunning to look at. The cinematography is symmetrical in some scenes, which I really liked and the lighting is perfect. There's also the score by Lucian Piane which is pretty fantastic.

Overall, the film is enjoyable as it is, although there are plenty of flaws. It could have been a better slasher if they fixed the script and had a better motive for the killer. If you're a horror fan, you may be slightly disappointed but it could have been a lot worse (I'm looking at you BLACK Christmas; the remake, of course).
