Sorority Row (Remake)

Director: Stewart Hendler
Country:  USA
Tagline:  The Sisters of Theta Pi Are Dying To Keep a Secret
Plot: A reimagining of the 1980's slasher, The House on Sorority Row. It tells the tale of a sorority prank gone wrong, resulting in the death of their 'sister', and in true slasher style an unknown killer stalks each of the girls for payback.
Verdict:  The film boasts talent like Audrina Patridge and Step Up 2 star Briana Evigan, and was nominated for two, yes TWO, Teen Choice Awards. Why? I really have no idea. This is basically a 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' sort of film, but with even less originality. The premise is weak and it totally rips off a whole list of better slasher stories such as 'Scream' (Spoiler: Another psycho boyfriend? Really? This one doesn't even have a half good reason either), an axe to the bathroom door? Can anybody say 'Here's Johnny?' not to mention the hooded killer, sorority party killings... I could really go on forever and they don't even use these blatent copy cats as a clever homage either! Give it a go if you want to see Audrina Patridge impaled by a tire iron though.
