4.0 out of 5 stars Babes, blood and automatic weapons 2 Feb 2010
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is it inventory time already? 15 Jan 2000
By Steve Sputnik - Published on Amazon.com
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 1993...no 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Box Cover & My Take 18 July 2004
By kenneth dickey - Published on Amazon.com
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to Die Movie Review from The Massie Twins 29 Aug 2009
By thejoelmeister - Published on Amazon.com
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too many movies out there to pay $100 for any one! 20 Feb 2014
By Doctor Dean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I saw this as a teenager, and, of course, loved the girls, and even honestly enjoyed the movie. I've been rounding up some old favorites before everything disappears into the "clouds." I've found Grandmother's House, PIN, Mr. Frost, The Kindred, Paradise, Private School, Endless Love, and any number of others. These vendors are getting pretty greedy with these second-rate titles, though, and none of them are worth $100 (I think the B-flick Mosquito goes for about $500). I just paid $30 for Fair Game, an Aussie flilm starring John Denver's second wife, and really could kick myself for spending so much. Sooner or later, these have to show up again, hopefully remastered and reasonably priced. In the meantime, there are plenty of others to watch. Oh, and watch out for counterfeits, or worthless homemade versions--there's a guy on another site selling Partridge Family bootlegs for $30 each, and their real value is exactly $0 (they can't be legally sold, or even traded). Unfortunately, some sites are not as diligent as Amazon about finding and throwing off thieving bootleggers, or even offering honesty in they way they treat reviews (the other site even deleted the warning I tried to leave behind for other buyers). My advice is to just be patient and hold-out for the re-release, and let Mr. Greed here sit on these eggs until they both rot. After all, when these titles are remastered, the rough original versions will be worthless.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you like so bad it's good - give it a look 8 Mar 2010
By The Cheshire Cat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Yep. This one's a stinker - but; we're assuming it was supposed to be.

Another Wynorski throwback that has lots of T+A - but it's really forced into the story this time (a shower stall that all the girls must use IN a lingerie warehouse?).

The action scenes are poorly directed; the gore terrible - but, Orville Ketchum returns here; and is even more monotone than in the previous entry (this was apparently a sequel to "Sorority House Massacre 2").

If your idea of a good time are questionable looking women; in and out of clothing chasing down a killer possessed by an evil spirit in a lingerie store - then you've found the golden ticket here!!!

The biggest downside, however; is the title. It refers (apparently) to Ketchum's character - which is, sadly, the longest-running and least funny joke in the film. Watch it and you'll see what we mean.

BOTTOM LINE: Worth a look for severe camp aficionados
