You really let me down this time, Roberta!
6 October 2014 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

Roberta Findley doesn't exactly enjoy the status of talented and well-respected director, but personally I always strangely appreciated her work. Admittedly the work she did along with her husband Michael during the 1970's was mostly rubbish (like the imaginatively titled but nearly unendurable "Invasion of the Blood Farmers" and "Snuff"), but when she abruptly became a widow – due to a nasty accident involving a helicopter - Roberta did some enjoyable projects during the 1980's. I'm a massive fan of "Tenement: Game of Survival", for instance, and I also shamelessly enjoyed her trashy accomplishments "The Oracle" and "Prime Evil". I was relatively confident that "Blood Sisters" would pretty much be similar to the latter two titles: insignificant but fun horror time-wasters, with loads of nasty make-up effects and cheerfully gratuitous moments of sleaze. Boy was I ever mistaken! "Blood Sisters" is incredibly boring and lukewarm with no redeeming aspects whatsoever! We're talking dull & derivative plot, ugly broads, zero tension or atmosphere and an unforgivably low amount of gore and bloodshed. What the hell happened there, Roberta? The (clichéd) intro sequences are still enjoyable, though. A young boy who not-so secretly lives in a luxury brothel can't take it anymore, so he grabs a shotgun and blows away his chubby hooker mother and one of her filthy clients. Thirteen years later, the now abandoned brothel serves as the location of an all-girls fraternity initiation ritual. Seven freshmen girls have to spend the night, whilst their frat sisters and lousy boyfriends prepared several pranks to scare them. At least, that's the plan, but naturally an uninvited killer pops up as well. I didn't time exactly how long it took before the first noteworthy scene took place (apart from the intro), but it was definitely more than three quarters of an hour! Until then, there are only overlong dialogs and a few pathetic topless parades. There's a pointless sub plot involving a semi-psychic sorority sister and inexplicable ghostly apparitions. The tame killings are actually 80's unworthy and revelation of the killer's identity is dumb and predictable (but still the highlight of the film).
