Plot synopsis:
Two Tri-Delta sorority pledges are constantly being followed and spied on by three nerdy frat boys. The boys are soon caught sneaking into the sorority house by the den mother.


The pledges are then ordered to steal a trophy from a local bowling alley aided by the unwanted boys. An accident during the robbery causes the trophy to break open, releasing an evil imp who wreaks havoc with his supernatural powers. Three of the sorority girls become killers…



Remastered from the original camera negative. Extras include a 2+ hour making-of documentary, commentary with director David DeCoteau, writer Sergei Hasenecz and Scream Queen Brinke Stevens and more.

“Short on logic  and long on gratuitous nude-ogling, this would-be camp item is scuppered by its thin wit and makeshift acting.” The Aurum Film Encyclopedia: Horror

“Watching it, you feel as though you’re sitting down with friends to replay a silly home movie you made together years ago, and when you wince and groan at all the stupid stuff, that is entirely the desired effect. Hell, if it’s entertaining enough that we can excuse the fact Linnea Quigley doesn’t get naked, what else really needs be said?” Brutal as Hell

“Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-o-Rama may  be ridiculous, D-grade tripe, but it also has D-cup nudity, so it all works  out.” Digital Retribution

“DeCoteau had started to hit his exploitation stride here, and Sorority Babes has a noticeable spark and energy to it that his previous directorial attempts singularly lacks… but for a mall-set horror-action flick… there’s little to no narrative drive to keep the viewers mind from wandering on to far more pressing matters.” Empire of the ‘B’s
