‘Don’t bother to scream.’

Sisters of Death is a 1976-released American horror film directed by Joseph A. Mazzuca from a screenplay written by Peter Arnold and Elwyn Richards, based on a story by the latter.

The movie stars Claudia Jennings (‘Gator Bait; The Single Girls; Deathsport), Arthur Franz, Cheri Howell, Sherry Boucher and Paul Carr.

Shot in 1972, Sisters of Death was belatedly released theatrically in the United States on 19 April 1976 in San Antonio, Texas.


During a secret society college initiation for young women, one of the new members is killed playing Russian Roulette. Seven years later, the survivors are invited to a reunion at a lavish estate, which turns out to be owned by the crazed father of the girl who died…



Sisters of Death is a great example of the prototype of the slasher film. All of the elements that in the next few years would become part of the formula for a successful slasher film are there. There really isn’t any nudity or gore … most of the violence in Sisters of Death happens off of the screen.” Horror Newt

“To its very limited credit, the movie features a few colorful deaths (by electric fence, Gatling gun, rattlesnake bite, scissors), plus occasional weird details like the scene in which the villain takes a break from killing people in order to practice his flute playing. (Really!) However, Sisters of Death isn’t exploitative enough to thrill fans of trashy cinema…” Every ’70s Movie


“This is largely a fun, low-budget thriller, light on the blood and nudity due to its PG rating, but still quite a bit more wild than a film that would get that rating today. No real standout acting, but it has a decent twist at the end and a few great scenes.” Expelled Grey Matter

“Even though it’s shoddily directed by Joseph A. Mazzuca, this has a fascination that most movies of this kind miss by miles. The explanations and surprise ending make no sense – it’s in the unfolding.’ John Stanley, Creature Features

“There’s one part where these two girls get into a huge fight over whether or not to take a shower. One of the girls decides if she doesn’t take a shower, right in the middle of this situation where they are all trapped in a compound being picked off one by one, she will go crazy, so of course, she takes a shower and gets killed.” Cave of Newtmonkey
