Effective TV-horror at a Southern sorority house
16 July 2017 | by WuchakkSee all my reviews

Released to TV in 2012 and directed by Darin Scott, "American Horror House" (aka "Sorority Horror House" or "Paranormal Initiation") chronicles events during Halloween at a haunted Southern sorority house. Morgan Fairchild plays the housemother. Alessandra Torresani & Salina Duplessis play initiates for the sorority. Dave Davis is on hand as the male protagonist while Gralen Bryant Banks appears as a private detective.

The low ratings for this movie are hilarious. What were these critics expecting with a Syfy horror flick about a sorority house? For what it is, it delivers the goods. It's got a compelling story, plenty of low-budget gore and a buffet of good-looking women. The pic's generally serious, but with a sense of humor (e.g. the veteran sorority girls). Sure, it's cartoony, but it was made-for-TV, after all, and it scores high marks on the female front.

The film runs 87 minutes and was shot in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The script was written by Anthony C. Ferrante.

GRADE: B-
