Additionally, the cheese-covered horror rules are followed perfectly: The phones get no reception unless receiving a horrifying, tension-increasing picture or video from the killer. A dark, mysterious figure in a face-covering graduation robe, the killer is so derivative that I imagined the character holding the fishing hook from I Know What You Did Last Summer (IKWYDLS) and wearing the mask from the Scream Trilogy, neither of which happened. There is full frontal nudity that serves no other purpose than checking off the nudity requirement. Characters who engage in illicit sex almost certainly die. Characters who elicit groans or disapproval from the audience are guaranteed excruciating deaths. And, finally, there is inevitably more than one "twist" to mislead the viewers attempting early killer recognition.
As for the characters, just picture IKWYDLS and replace the male characters with gorgeous, nubile, women in their early twenties.Read more ›

In the end, it's a fun movie and it has some good scares!
The story is as simple as most slashers, and unfortunately still features a cast of characters that we all want to see die. But the suspense is still there and the reveal did catch me off guard.
The word "Sorority" carries a lot of baggage in movie titles. I don't need to tell you what it's supposed to make you visualize; suffice it to say that it leads you to expect a lot of nudity fronting for a show that's pretty dumb. Not here. Oh there's a fair amount of nudity, although not as much as most Greek life films usually provide, and it's sexually quite raunchy, but the underlying story is anything but dumb, and this creative team realizes that story incredibly well.
The first part really had the feel of those movies, ranging from Will You Rather to Devil's Dozen to Truth or Dare that set out to explore human nature by putting a gang of interesting characters in an unimaginable situation and seeing what happens. Usually it doesn't work because the creators of the movie aren't as good at coming up with good characters as with wild scenarios, but in Truth of Dare and even more this movie, high caliber acting work and a great (though sometimes too elaborate) scenario come together to form something greater than the whole of its parts. Watch out for a show-stealing performance by Princess Leia, late of the Rebel Alliance.
