Editorial Reviews

It s a long holiday weekend at the Lambda Epsilon Zeta sorority house, and a handful of girls stay behind to indulge in three days of partying, sex games and strangely delicious meals prepared by the weird new chef. But as the sisters begin to disappear one-by-one, the remaining coeds The Slut, The Stoner, The Bible Beater, The Dumb Hot Blonde, The Predatory Lesbian, The Tease, The Dominatrix and The Good Girl will find themselves trapped in a nightmare of graphic slaughter, involuntary cannibalism and heaping helpings of gourmet nudity. Mark Hengst, Makinna Ridgway and Kit Paquin star in this bloodspattered black comedy that cuts like a knife, tastes like chicken and serves up a scrumptious feast of carnage courtesy of THE COOK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully Fun Horror Flick May 22, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this movie first reviewed by Fangoria. I find most of my best horror movies in that magazine. I went to Walmart and read the back, and it sounded like a really good movie. I didnt agree with the price and knew I could find it cheaper on amazon, so I ordered it. I have to say, this movie is great. Its brutally disgusting, yet fun and entertaining. The cook comes off as a foreign chef that knows no english and says things like "I AM COOK! OKAY!" and its hilarious. But, one by one he is killing the sorority sisters and FEEDING them to the others! This movie has comedy, drama, some lesbian moments, and good old fashioned blood and guts horror. A must have for any horror fan!

Like most "serious" horror fans (what does that even mean) I tend to be leery of certain things: a) teenagers (by which I mean basically up to age 25) going on camping trips, b) teenagers going on road trips, c) teenagers going on foreign trips, d) found footage, e) haunted houses, f) cheerleaders, g) sororities.
But give a think to "g)". Didn't the whole slasher genre begin with the awesome sorority massacre film Black Christmas? (It did, it did! You're so smart Mr. Amazon Critic. Here's our collective number. By the way, we're all cute girls.) Maybe that's why the sorority house as a setting has gone so far off the reservation. Because trust me, I look through Amazon Instant Video titles every day, there's LOTS of sorority house horror fare out there (& also a disturbing amount of women's prison stuff, but don't get me started...) Perhaps it's just that it lends itself way too easily to the lotion-and-tissue crowd.* Or maybe it's just that sororities are kind of lame.
But pay attention to this wonderful entrée served up by director Gregg Simon and writers Nicholas Bonomo, Francisco Rodriguez and Dirk Van Fleet. All guys, am I right? What gives? Actually, if you're looking for signs of the progress of feminism in the film industry by examining a sorority slasher, you may have taken a wrong term somewhere.
In all seriousness, I really would like to see a good one of these come from an all double-X team, but I would be willing to bet that there's a lot of insider knowledge at play here, from the women in the crew, in the cast, the writers' families. Maybe I'm wrong, having never astrally traveled to a sorority house (hint hint, God. Birthday coming soon) but this felt real. One way or another, the eight women (a lot for a slasher!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Cook Serves Up The Good, The Bad & The Bloody April 14, 2008
Format:DVD
I was very skeptical about the Cook at first. Yet another in and endless line of low budget direct to video horror garbage.

Granted, I saw the film without having a clue as to it's nature or background. One thing The Cook does is reaffirm you can't judge a DVD by it's cover.

The Cook is is a very funny, well written little bloodfest with emphasis on the funny over the horrific.

We get a boatload of the most varied sorority girls ever to assemble under one roof. Enter the new cook (who is strangely never asked his name) who arrives just in time for Spring Break. Most of the girls are gone but a handful stay behind to be slaughtered.

There is plenty of blood, just the right amount of chubb inducing naked girls and some great dialogue from the potty mouthed pothead. There were never any sorority girls like these in my college...and I went to SDSU!

Nothing beats watching a bible thumping hottie get seduced by the by the house lezbo. For once I was not even interested in the kills so much as what would come out of these girls mouths.

Special note, th e cop at the end, he needs his own movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars So much exploitation promised; so little delivered. April 10, 2008
Format:DVD
"The Cook" is another in the recent crop of horror-comedies that, like so many of its brethren, fails to live up to its hype. Even graded on the b-movie curve this story only rates a 2.5 (rounded up to 3 for ridiculous amounts of prurient behavior and some decent fan-boy humor.)

The story takes place in a sorority house (and thus begins our exploitation potential), where the girls who didn't go "away" on spring break are planning on carousing their way through the long weekend. Please note, I'm not entirely sure if the decision to "carouse" without any (well nearly any) participation by the opposite sex was done for budgetary or "exploitive reasons, but the fact that the Sorority is "Lambda Epsilon Zeta" tends to make me think the latter.

As an added twist, our killer is the Sorority's new cook. Who has just arrived from Hungary and speaks "very" little English. His motif is not hockey masks or a clawed glove, no this serial killer goes for cannibalism in a "culinary" sort of way and then feeding the "remains" of his kills to his future victims.

I really wanted to like this movie. I mean hey, it's full of pretty young things. It doesn't take itself too seriously. It has a geeky love story and a "fall from innocence" (sort of) subplot going on and the ads promise nudity and gore. What more could a low brow horror movie fan ask for?

Well, for starters he could ask for the actual delivery of some more of the nudity, but that's actually a fairly minor point. By the very act of watching a movie like this, the viewer agrees to suspend disbelief, up to a point. I can tolerate (enjoy?) a cannibalistic serial killer who just happens to wind-up in a Sorority House full of improbably beautiful and hedonistic coeds.

Number one the acting was very poor. There was no real plot except for the cook to kill every last one of the sororiety sisters in a gruesome way. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Some goofy horror and gory fun
This is rather gory but mostly funny and goofy as the story unfolds of some sorority girls who hire a new cook, only to be picked off one by one and served up to each other.
