director Carol Frank
As a lot of folks have noted, this late 80’s slasher breaks little ground, and what unbroken ground it treads, it does so somewhat shabbily.
A surreal atmosphere pervades Sorority House Massacre, full of dreamy flashbacks and hypnotic dreams. It’s also charmingly girly but very girly, which I suppose fits the milieu of a sorority house. And, Ouch the outfits!
More than anything, it has a real lack of tension and drama in the scenes it needs it most.
It explains my sense of déjà vu, that director Carol Frank worked on Slumber Party Massacre (1982) and that the scene in the upstairs room with the killer trying to enter the window was essentially copied from it.
I’m not going to beat up on it.
