United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Sorority sisters are frighteningly plucked off one by one in this horror film by Mark Rosman. Katherine (Kathryn McNeil) is a serious-minded, thinking woman whose intelligence is about to stand her in good stead when events turn dark and murderous. She and the more evil-minded Vicki (Eileen Davidson), along with five other women, cannot believe it when their housemother forbids them to throw a big party on June 19th. As a response, the sorority women drown her in the swimming pool. One would think another date might have been negotiated. What they do not know is that the 19th marks the birthday of a very unusual offspring, born to the housemother 20 years earlier in an experimental procedure that left much to be desired. Apparently this son does not appreciate the murder of his mother, and mayhem begins from that point onward, and onward, and onward until the final climactic moment arrives at last. ...The House on Sorority Row ( House of Evil ) ( Seven Sisters )

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 22 Jun 2010
Format:DVD
I'm not a fan of new slasher movies. They're cliched and never say anything new. From today's viewpoint, one could say The House on Sorority Row is somewhat cliched as well. The story is that there are a group of girls who have just graduated and are staying in their sorority house so they can hold their graduation party there. The house mother, Mrs Slater, however, has a policy that all the girls must be out by a specific date and is not too pleased when she finds they're still there. One of the girls talks the others into playing a prank on Mrs Slater to demonstrate that they won't be pushed around. The prank goes wrong, however, and Mrs Slater is killed. The girl who came up with the prank doesn't want to take responsibility for what happened so she talks the others into hiding the body in the swimming pool until the party is over. She claims that they will ALL get in trouble, not just those responsible for the prank (the law student girl should really have known that wasn't true). During the party, the girls then start getting picked off one by one - the question is, is it Mrs Slater back from the grave? Or is it someone else?

You have to keep in mind that this was one of the first slasher movies. The slasher movie conventions, so nicely laid bare for us in Scream, weren't written yet, which means that at the time it was made it wasn't cliched. At times, after the introductory flashback scenes, for instance, the film seems like it's going to be some kind of drama about college life. And the way Mrs Slater is portrayed deals with 'tradition vs the new'. When she was younger, women didn't behave in the way the girls in the sorority house did (not so blatantly anyway) and you get the feeling that she yearns for an earlier time, a time that she was comfortable with.

3.0 out of 5 stars "How do we know she IS alive" 16 April 2012
By West25
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A group of sorority girls can't afford to have their party where they wanted, so they decide to hold the party at the sorority house. Mrs Slater finds out that the girls are planning on staying, even though the house gets closed for three months after the school year. She demands that the girls be out of the house the day after, and insists there will be no party. It seems that Mrs Slater was once a great housemother who had an excellent relationship with the girls in her care, but over the years she's become miserable and bitter, and the girls now view her as a dinosaur. Already furious that the girls are still in the house when it should be empty, she catches one of the girls called Vicki having sex and is disgusted. She exclaims "You filth, trash like you doesn't belong in my house." Vicki decides to pull a prank on Mrs Slater, and of course the prank goes wrong resulting in her death. Vicki manages to rope the others into covering it up for her, instead of just going to the police and explaining the accident. There's the usual arguments of she's already dead and going to the police won't change anything and why should all our lives be ruined for a mistake? With Mrs Slater dead and her body out of the way, the girls decide to go ahead with the party. Once the party begins, the girls start getting knocked off one by one.

The acting really does fluctuate between good and awful, but it's classic eighties bad acting which is never a bad thing. Kate McNeil is the main girl and the film focuses on her more than the others, a good thing as she's clearly the better actress out of the friends. I watched her just last week in Monkey Shines and she's gone on to have considerably more success than the others, she's appeared in dozens of TV shows throughout the last twenty years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best release of film yet... 5 Feb 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In this clasic early eighties slasher a group of graduates decide to stay on in their sorority house for another week and hold a graduation party much to the displeasure of their house mother who was intending to have the house all to herself (something is up however, as we discover from a visit to the head doctors). After antagonising the sorority sisters once too often they decide to get their own back on the unreasonable house mother and things go horribly wrong leading to (an almost inevitable for films like this) cycle of nudity and murder!!
Those looking for sophistication in their films look elsewhere, anyone after a classic slice of eighties slasher mayhem need look no further as this is plenty of fun inspite of lacking any origionality whatsoever and sits proudly alongside My Bloody Valentine [DVD] [1981] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] and Happy Birthday to Me [DVD] [1981] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] as one of the better quality slasher pics of the era. The film boasts some great performances (and some truley dreadful ones!) an excellent score from Richard band brother of legendary low budget horror director/producer charles and an accomplished composer in his own right and is abley and competently directed by mark rosman director of the even more terryfying A Cinderella Story [DVD] [2004] and The Perfect Man [DVD] [2005] proof if it is needed that he is capable of delivering an audience true horrors!
