|Eileen Davidson as the Mean Girl|
A prologue in 1961 indicates that a certain someone who is potentially very dangerous must be put away for everyone's safety. Twenty years later a group of sorority girls decide to celebrate their graduation by putting on a party. The girls can't stand their harridan of a den mother, Mrs. Slater (Lois Kelso Hunt), so they play a mean prank on her that goes horribly wrong. Then an unseen somebody begins to stalk the young women, murdering them and their dates one by one. Borrowing a lot from Friday the 13th, The House on Sorority Row is an acceptable slasher flick that is not very well directed. The "highlight" of the flick is a bathroom murder scene that ends with the head-in-the-toilet-bowl bit. Eileen Davidson, who later came to soap prominence on The Young and the Restless, is effective enough as the resident "mean girl." Michael Kuhn, who plays the sensitive Peter, became a producer after this one screen appearance. Robin Meloy, the hysterical blonde, Jeanie, also had this one film credit. A not bad score by Richard Band. Remade as Sorority Row in 2009.
Verdict: Fair to middling slasher. **1/2.
