Early on, we see footage from 1982’s The Slumber Party Massacre and its serial killer, old Hokstedter, dispatching most of a cast in a few seconds. The murderer in Sorority House Massacre Part 1 was a completely different character, which brings a great deal of confusion from the get go. We’re then introduced, in real time, to yet another stalking creep that may or may not be our next psycho.
This is followed by a marathon of five gratuitous boob shots; two in the shower, two in a bedroom and one in the living room. A Ouija board séance featuring the sisters in undies drinking alcohol follows. This is to be expected from a horror movie with the word sorority in its title and is something to experience. The bad dialog, timing and editing makes this more cliched than it has to be.
This is a fun film to watch. It is simple-minded, has a limited cast and set and a very simple story. It makes two unforgivable mistakes. First, it alludes to a supernatural element that it barely exploits; second, it puts too much emphasis on a police procedural that hardly ties in with the main plot, especially when considering that the current killer may originate from a different franchise.
