Swift and oddly likable slasher
29 September 2009 | by StampsfightclubSee all my reviews

8 months after the accidental death of their sorority sister, a group of sorority sisters are targeted by a serial killer.

Stewart Hendler's picture is a blend of the hormonal versus the slasher. The sex versus the violence. And whilst recent pictures have blended similar ideologies together (Donkey Punch etc) this is still a highly likable picture.

Beginning with your conventional teenage college party we see the camera flowing around in a big one cut opening sequence (impressive one to) as we see students demolishing their surroundings, couples getting frisky and even the odd brawl breaking out. Like the first series of Skins everything is spicy and elegant with colourful unknown protagonists.

From Bruce Willis' daughter to Step Up 2 star Briana Evigan we see a collection of attractive personalities engage in a sorority gathering and when a sexual prank goes from bad to worse in the middle of nowhere we dive right into gritty drama.

The dialogue in this sequence feels quite ordinary, as if plugged straight from any other horror. From the "What's happened" to "What are we going to do?" everything is samey but thankfully this particular sequence is saved through some wonderfully shot hand held camera motives. Flashes of panicked faces flash by in a whirlwind of emotional drama and incomprehensible circumstance and from there we have our horror.

8 months pass by with no incident and as the biggest party of the year arrives, so does a masked guest who targets the sorority girls. Scream was and perhaps still is the first and best original slasher movie thanks to its creepy flinching motive and dark intertextuality to other horrors. This 2009 picture follows similar traits with its unidentifiable villain and modern comedy style. From Facebook jokes to appearance jibes, this stereotypes itself into the trend of modern cinema. If you're looking for a refreshing bite of horror with raw humour like Scream, look elsewhere.

Not being too big on horror myself I ashamedly admit to flinching a few times but any big horror guru will not be unfazed by its frankly predictable justification of attacks. The humour is not on the scale of Scream or Scary Movie but modern culture gets a slap in the face with this collection of appearance, sex and party flicks.

Acting wise Evigan steps up from her blank portrayal in her last outing and the leader of the girls Leah Pipes is cruel and as suave enough to manage the others, easily generating the most humour. And whilst Rumer Willis cries all the way through and Julian Morris fits the stereotype of aloof boyfriend, they all fit easily to the narrative.

By far the best horror in the world, Sorority rows makes for a fun viewing with modern and current vibes of teenage angst and oppression.
