The House on Sorority Row is a significantly superior slasher, featuring more realized characters and a set up and scenario that works well.

The primary characters are all female, more developed and not standard and stereotypical. While not exactly feminist nor fully fleshed-out, the characterization still starkly contrasts with much of the genre.

Graduating sorority girls run afoul of their house mother by overstaying their welcome and throwing a graduation party. Things go south when a mean prank goes wrong, and an algae soup swimming pool plays a key to the works.

The twist ending deflates it a bit.
