Editorial Reviews

A cult classic slasher film that delivers suspense, murder, mysteryand yes topless co-eds in this high quality transfer from a recently discovered pristine 35mm print. Flirtatious young sorority sisters (Soap Opera stars Eileen Davidson and Kathryn McNeil) who are days away from graduation set out to throw one last decadent celebration. Unbeknownst to them, the strict matron of their house hides a horrendous secret thought long buried. A gruesome accident is witnessed by a hideous fiend, hidden within the once nurturing dwelling, which triggers a rampage of death and destruction. Before the end, the peril faced by this sisterhood will push them to the brink of annihilation. And rivers of blood will drown all who enter The House on Sorority Row.

Trailer, Photo Gallery, Commentary by Mark Rosman, Eileen Davidson and Kathryn McNeil, Storyboard Comparisons, Alternate Ending Presentation

Customer Reviews

This 1982 film is one of my personal favorite slasher movies!
P. Duffy
When the prank goes wrong, the "bad" girl convinces everyone to help cover it up, while the "good" girl tries to convince them to do the opposite.
Bud Bundy
The story is interesting, the acting good, as well as the production values, and is scary!

Out of the seemingly endless amount of slasher films released in the early 1980s, The House on Sorority Row stands out as a superior example of the genre. The graduating seniors of Theta Chi want to have one final party before leaving college and facing the real world. There's just one problem. Their rather puritanical house mother, Mrs. Slater, absolutely forbids them to engage in any activites involving booze, premaritial relations, drugs, or anything else that made college so much fun circa 1983. So, logically enough, the girls react by pulling a prank that has the unintentional result of apparently killing the old witch. Unfortunately, Mrs. Slater has the bad manners to die just as the party's about to get started. What's a group of up-and-coming sorority girls to do? Well, they basically end up dumping Mrs. Slater in the house's filthy pool and then go on to attend perhaps the most uncomfortable party of their lives. However, as the party gets going, they discover that Mrs. Slater's body is no longer in the pool. And, as the night progresses, the girls start to disappear one by one as an unseen stalker makes its way through the sorority house, armed only with Slater's surprisingly sharp cane...

Needless to say, a plot description doesn't really do this film justice. However, slasher films -- on the whole -- are probably the most predictable of genres. The mark of good slasher film is that it holds the audience's interest even though that audience already knows pretty much everything that's going to happen. And this is a task that the House on Sorority Row easily accomplishes. On the whole, the entire cast gives performances that are a cut above what one usually expects from this type of film.

For some reason, me and my best friend in high school were completely obsessed with this movie. Between us both, we watched it at least 20 times. We even memorized the dialogue, the awful awful dialogue. We still quote lines from it on rare occasion. Being a horror movie fan, I appreciate "House" on various levels. For one, it has an interesting storyline that's original and intriguing. It's not just a mindless slasher where you could care less who gets the axe. Another thing, it's gory and doesn't hold back on the blood and guts. It shows most of the carnage you expect to see when watching a horror movie. Nowadays, filmakers edit out all the good stuff and totally dissapoint me. (Typical example: "I Know What You Did Last Summer"...lame!). "House On Sorrority Row" is in the classic horror flicks of the 80's category, along with the early "Friday the 13ths" and a slew of others. I think this would make an awesome remake, if they stayed true to the story and included good special effects. This movie is 10 times better than most of the horror crap released today. I can't wait to watch the DVD, I'm shocked they actually released it, thanks!!!

This movie is not like the Sorority House Massacre series or the Slumber Party Massacre series. This movie is excellent. The photography, lighting, acting, story line and score are above average for this type of movie. Elite Entertainment did an excellent digital transfer on this DVD. This movie rates extremely high in my Horror collection. Glad I own it.

The 80's was the peak of Horror Films. Slashers, monsters, thrillers, zombies, you name it, the 1980's was flooded with these flicks... and yes this was the last "great" era of them as well. So give me a minute, and let me rant before i describe the DVD quality ok? Hahaha...

I had never seen House on Sorority Row, and yes i am ashamed, because growing up in NYC, as a teen, I thought i had seen every horror flick made in the 1980's by way of 42nd street double features, and late night cable TV. I don't know if it had a long run in the theaters, but i did miss this gem. Yes, a "gem". You see, many horror flicks like this one from 30 years ago were of course made to make money for producers during this genre craze, BUT,most writers and directors made them for the viewer as well, they wanted to give their audience their money's worth. Low budget flicks like "Evil Dead", to higher budget ones like the "The Burning" were made with effort, class and creativity, and i think the majority of the film makers who made them, had a sincere love for their craft.

Sorority Row is an example of good film making. Good acting (In a horror movie context!), suspense, scares, creepiness, and some CGI-Less FX ( i have a low tolerance for computer generated effects in horror films), and also without the shock soaked, violence that horror films, or should i say "shock-films" bombard us with in the 2000's. I won't get into the storyline and the plot, you already have some idea of what this is about, my objective is to express how films of this genre were made when making money off of them was important, but satisfying the audience was just as equally important to the film makers.

What was the DVD price when released January 12, 2010 ?
$14.49 when it was released but now it is out of print. I see they have some new ones listed from secondary sources for about $15.50 shipped. If you want it, I would scoop it up before it becomes scarce.
