SORORITY ROW (2009). Director: Stewart Hendler.
As has happened in other slasher flicks, a practical joke badly misfires, somebody dies, and someone seems out for revenge by slaughtering most of the cast -- whether they were in on the "joke" or not. There's some good acting in the movie, especially by Julian Morris as valedictorian Andy, and Rumer Ellis as the geeky Ellie, and a scary Carrie Fisher shows up as a den mother halfway through the movie. Sorority Row -- apparently a remake of The House on Sorority Row -- is over-familiar, to say the least, but it holds the attention and is effective enough as a minor-league horror/action film.
Verdict: There have been worse -- much worse. **1/2.
