Storyline

Over a long holiday weekend, unable to escape the confines of their sorority house, a handful of unsuspecting girls are left behind to enjoy the quiet sanctuary. The normal house staff has taken off for the weekend, leaving the girls to fend for themselves. Thankfully someone was kind enough to send them a temporary replacement chef to cook their meals. However, when the girls start disappearing one-by-one, they begin to suspect something may not be quite right. Written by DVF

Relatively entertaining
16 December 2008 | by TdSmth5See all my reviews

In a sorority some girls go on a vacation while others stay behind. We will follow those who stay at the sorority house. They're an entertaining bunch: an innocent fanatic Christian girl who is the object of lust of an aggressive girl, a medical student who does nothing but study, a slutty girl, a trio of friends made up of a dumb blonde and two foul-mouthed lesbians who spend most of the time high, an exercise fanatic who has a guy over to tutor her, but she doesn't want anything else with him.

Their new cook arrives, a Hungarian who can only say "OK" in English. He prepares them delicious meat dishes. But little by little the girls start disappearing. The cook doesn't appear as to them as a suspect because he's always covered in blood hacking meat. The pretty medical student sort of falls for the cook even though he tells her what he will to do her friends, in Hungarian, and she thinks it sounds sweet.

The dialogue is pretty funny and the girls are given good and distinct personalities. There's some gore, and a bit is gruesome. There are a couple of twists near the ending. Overall an OK lower budget horror movie saved by the fun girls and also the cook does a good job as a mad serial killer.
