The House on Sorority Row ★★½

I found this cult-classic 1980s slasher had been recently added to Amazon's Prime videos. It's one of the few of this horror subgenre that I hadn't seen yet. I'm a bit of a completist, so I streamed it.

It's a low-budget independent production, so I wasn't surprised at the usual rough edges, including low production values. The premise and story are tenuous at best, but the dialogue and acting are somewhat better than in comparable films.

While sexuality is by definition a theme, it's interesting that the "final girl" is virtuous because of her objection to killing rather than her abstinence. The killer kills in retribution for violence rather than as a penalty for premarital sex.

Of course, this movie was not made for art-film lovers. The enjoyment is in the tastiness of the cheese. If you're a fan of this kind of horror, watch it if you haven't seen it yet.
