So my love for cheesy and preposterously bad movies continues. Five store employees arrive at work in a high rise tower to take the yearly inventory at Acme Lingerie. But during the moving of files, the sprinkler system is accidentally activated. Leaving the group of girls wet. So they each in turn have to take showers and god forbid they put dirty clothes back on. So what is there to wear? Luckily there is plenty of skimpy Lingerie. So the rest of the film they are running around in Lingerie and heels. In between taking showers the girls find and open a puzzle box that contains the spirit of a killer who killed members of a Sorority House. Someone in the building becomes possessed by him and starts killing off the girls one by one. Although at its core it's a slasher film. (Alternative title Sorority House Massacre 3) Director Jim Wynorski in a touch of genius tries to add a bit of action by giving the girls machine guns. What follows is some extreme over the top gun play. (It would put John Woo to shame) all of course while still wearing lingerie. Gail Harris, Karen Mayo-Chandler, Deborah Dutch, Melissa Moore and Bridget Carney are all enjoyable to watch. Orville Ketchum takes allot of punishment thought-out and is humorous in the way he takes it. Babes, Blood and automatic weapons. A must see for any cult film fan or if any fan of soft-core T&A.

HASH(0x97251d50) out of 5 stars Is it inventory time already? 15 Jan. 2000
By Steve Sputnik - Published on
I have to say it doesn't get much better than this folks. A group of young women are stuck in a building doing inventory of lingerie when one by one they start to die. The cover has nothing to do with this movie which is actually the third installment in the brilliant Sorority House Massacre series. The back of the video box shows scenes that weren't in the movie at all and make it sound like the next "Die Hard". All the actresses have returned from the second movie but they all have different names and no connections to the murders that occured. Bizarre...yes, completely stupid...absolutely, the best movie of contest. The director seems to have a certain skill with lengthy shower scenes. Using this technique he disguises the fact that this film seems to have no point. Hopefully "Orville" will return in another Sorority House movie but until then we still have this epic masterpiece.

HASH(0x972da174) out of 5 stars The Box Cover & My Take 18 July 2004
By kenneth dickey - Published on
Format: DVD
"A group of beautiful young women are about to experience the most horrifying night of their lives - trapped in a deserted skyscraper, with a crazed killer at their heels. Soon their over time duty becomes an action filled evening of terror and suspense - yet they choose to defy the odds and fight back ... trading fear for firepower in a high -stakes fight to the death. It's a female "DIE HARD" full of thrilling stunts and explosive action!
Starring Robyn Harris, with Melissa Moore, Lindsay Taylor, Debra Dare, Bridget Carney, and Karen Chorak." That's from the VHS cover, now my take: This movie has: Beach Bimbos, Lingerie, Scary Weird Guy, Wet Tee Shirts, Mysterious Scientist, Shower Scenes, Blood & Gorge, Babes in Bikinis w/ Machine Guns, and ??. So, if that fits your search criteria, I highly recommend it (4.0, [I like to see ALL the babes win]). If you liked "Slumber Party Massacre", "Flesh Gordon" etc. I know you'll enjoy this DVD.

I have been trying to write this damn review for over a week now and most of that time I have been staring at a blank page. How do I review a “film”, using that term loosely here, with the barest of plot and the barest of breasts? Screw character development, we’ve got boobs! If this movie succeeds at being a “bad” b-movie should I give it a passing grade or should the movie be “more” than that? What makes the perfect “bad” horror movie? What makes a good-bad horror movie work when a bad-bad horror movie doesn’t? I asked myself these questions at least a dozen times before coming up with some answers. I had a good time with this terrible B-film and God help me, I’m going to recommend it to everyone! Consider yourself warned!

“Hard to Die” (also known as “Tower of Terror”) begins as a “group of beautiful women get set to experience the most horrifying night of their lives- trapped in a deserted skyscraper, with a crazed killer at their heels. Soon their innocent overtime duty becomes an action-filled evening of terror and suspense- yet they choose to defy the odds and fight back…. Trading fear for firepower in a high stakes, all-out fight to the death. It’s female Die Hard full of thrilling stunts and explosive action!”

I’ll be the first to admit that I lifted that plot description straight from the box of the VHS box. If that doesn’t sell the movie, what does? What doesn’t that description mention? What’s actually the bulk of the movie. We have an evil monkey puzzle box that’s taken over the soul of one of the girls at ACME lingerie. Who is possessed and can the other girls stop the “possessed one” in time? Sounds like your kind of movie yet? Well, if that isn’t enough for you how about great B-movie actresses like Debbie Dutch as Jackie, the red head with the big breasts who hates elevators, delivering lines like “It’s a DEATH trap!” Get ready to cringe at the fact that Orville Ketchum (the crazy neighbor next door from “Sorority House Massacre II”) WILL. NOT. DIE. Do you like girls with big breasts getting naked with over-the-top humor with little to no gore? This movie is for you.

This is the only movie I can think of that introduces IMPORTANT characters mere minutes before the end credits. It’s a mess but an entertaining mess nonetheless. Speaking of a mess, I’m sorry if this review is a bit of a mess. It really is just a series of random ideas with lots of enthusiasm and a lot of heart. Funny…that pretty much sums up “Hard to Die.” This is the kind of bad movie that KNOWS it’s a bad movie and when it comes to horror, that makes all the difference in the world.
HASH(0x972da57c) out of 5 stars Stupid and Bad. Nowhere Near as Awesome as the Original 'Sorority House Massacre'!!! 13 Jan. 2016
By Pumpkin Man - Published on
Format: DVD
This past week, I've been watching the Sorority House Massacre movies and the Slumber Party Massacre movies. Hard to Die is supposed to be the 3rd in the Sorority House Massacre 'trilogy' because the Orville Ketchum character from #2 is back in this one. The original was a cheesy B-Movie slasher about an escaped mental patient going after girls in a sorority house. I loved it and can't stop thinking about it. I don't even know how or why this movie got connected to it. It's basically Sorority House Massacre 2 done again, but in a skyscraper. A group of women all have to work late. They randomly decide to get nude and shower and put on sexy lingerie. They find a mysterious box that unleashes an evil spirit that'll contaminate your soul. The killer was pretty disappointing and obvious. He's basically like Michael or Jason, you can shoot and stab him a million times, but he can't be killed. Just do yourself a favor and avoid this one. I would not recommend HARD TO DIE (aka) SORORITY HOUSE MASSACRE 3!!!

HASH(0x972da6b4) out of 5 stars Hard to Die Movie Review from The Massie Twins 29 Aug. 2009
By thejoelmeister - Published on
Format: DVD
"I just want to get my clothes on and get the hell outta here!" shouts Jackie hysterically. It may hide behind the alternate title "Hard to Die," and utilize the stage name "Arch Stanton" (the name on the grave in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly) for director Jim Wynorski, but with most of the same cast returning and with reused ideas and recycled flashbacks, Sorority House Massacre III is still very much the same cheesy movie. The character names have changed (except for Orville Ketchum, now the janitor, and through the majority of the film practically a zombie), the goofy synthesized piano music is back, and the cleavage is as prominent as ever. Since the film doesn't take place in a sorority house, the working titles "Hard to Die" or "Tower of Terror" are more appropriate, but the film is practically identical in story and tone to the series the director took over.

Four department store employees (Dawn, played by Robyn Harris; Jackie, played by Deborah Dare; Tess, played by Melissa Moore; and Shayna, played by Bridget Carney) arrive for the yearly inventory at Acme Lingerie and meet up with the newly hired girl Diana Farrow (Lindsay Taylor). While working in the dusty basement, the sprinkler system is accidentally activated, getting the group of seductresses suitably wet (yes, that was a major plot point). After cleaning up in the manager's office, they discover a mis-delivered occult witchcraft soul box that unleashes an evil (and poorly animated) spirit. The mysterious package was intended for Dr. Newton (a man who casually reads from the book "Demonology and You") at the museum, who attempts to warn them of the dangers - until the phone goes dead. Meanwhile, the same two detectives from Sorority House Massacre II decide to investigate the lingerie store and their old pal Orville, who they both finger as a mass murderer. As the five isolated girls wait for a Chinese food delivery, they are quickly slaughtered by a hooded assailant, armed with a diabolically evil metal hook.

It's especially funny to see the desirable vixens talk about the sorority house massacre that happened in the previous film, considering they played the victims, most of whom didn't make it out alive. And that film reused an introductory plot from the Slumber Party Massacre films. It's like a remake of the previous film, shot for shot, but with a new location; it's even more absurd if you've just seen the previous movie. Both of Wynorski's sequels are completely unrelated to the first Sorority House Massacre, rendering that film obsolete for either understanding the inconsequential plot or enjoying the scatterbrained characters and their extremely toned bodies. Even the first fight scene with Orville is choreographed in an identical fashion (the knife to the guts is in the same place, as is the strangulation by handy extension cord). The repetition is just plain obnoxious (except for the copious nudity, which somehow never gets tiresome).

The same girl manages to take a shower first again (Melissa Moore), her spontaneous undressing moderated by remarkably silly saxophone riffs. And the others aimlessly slip into sexy lingerie in short order. Even the creepy janitor eyes the girls in the same way, and once the bloodletting starts, the splattering of blood and gore is all too familiar. The only major difference is the immoderate amount of machinegun fire. Some people consider this to be a softcore parody of Die Hard, but it couldn't be further from it - if anything, it was simply a gimmicky title choice. Ultimately, who cares? There's plenty of flesh on display, and none of it is unappealing (except maybe for the odd food delivery girl dressed like a clown). It's all in the interest of conceding to the target audience's poor tastes.
