Plot:

The isolated town of Grizzly Cove is full of college girls but has a dangerous secret: One girl has gone missing each year for the last twenty years. A big-city cop, in danger of losing his badge, agrees to aid the town’s sheriff in investigating these unsolved disappearances.

Quickly they realize that they are dealing with a psychotic killer whose academic brilliance has been twisted into a taste for terror, torture, and sorority sister torment. But when this party gets started, who will graduate – and who will be held back?

Reviews:

” …the film’s co-directors take Rodriguez and Tarantino’s good intentions and twist them into an excuse to make a bad movie simply because it’s a hyper-aware goof. The result is neither spoof nor satire but rather a brain-dead exercise in hyper-irreverent filmmaking—it’s a film that couldn’t give less of a damn about the genre it thinks it’s sending up or about the audience upon which it inflicts its horrors.” Oh, the Horror!

“Characters are murdered before they show any promise and the main murderer’s motivations involve boredom. This watcher felt the same as the killer. This film cannot be recommended to horror or comedy fans.” 28 Days Later Analysis

“When all is said and done, there’s no doubt that Sorority Party Massacre carries thrills. It’s also a piece of work that clearly suffers from a few technical weaknesses. But it’s an enjoyable flick. There are hearty laughs to be discovered. There are awesome post production executions that captivate in an almost Tarantino kind of way.” Horrorfreak News
