    The tedious flick offers little more than a few scares, and plenty of boobs. And we're not just talking about the cast.

    Sorority Row is an interminable mess of a film that juggles more characters and undeveloped subplots than it can handle and even manages to bungle the setup.

    Sisters are doing it for themselves in this jolly college horror flick - if by "it" you mean horrible slaughter and softcore nudity.

    The "scary'' moments are of the sneak-up-on-you-from-behind variety, but there's little suspense.

  • Michelle Orange Village Voice (Top Critic)
    Call me the sarcastic sister, but the only thing screaming in any convincing way here are the cheap look, epileptic direction, and off-key, "edgy" humor.

  • Russell Edwards Variety (Top Critic)
    An average slasher pic that meanders indecisively between gore and gags.

    It's all cheese, but at least this cheese, for the most part, doesn't stink.

    There's little to distinguish this from the rest of the entries coming down the horror film assembly line.

    It lapses into that familiar category of movies that go in for lots of fancy obfuscation along the way only to make its story seem all the more simple, trite and contrived by the finish.

    By the time the killer's identity is finally revealed you'll be amazed at how screenwriters make big bucks penning lines like, "Who the hell lit the house on fire? S---!"

    This is a movie so formulaic it could have been written by Microsoft Excel.

    Like the all-partying, all-screaming sisters of Theta Pi, Sorority Row feels doomed from the first frame.

    ...a sporadically watchable yet thoroughly disappointing horror effort that's underwhelming even by the standards of the genre.

    Classic horror that follows the old pattern, but it follows it well with creative slashings and a well hidden killer. You could do a lot worse.

    Sorority Row can laugh at the fact that it falls in line with genre conventions, but it doesn't excuse how easily it adopts them.

    Over-the-top humor tries to mask the problems, that it's not scary and the ending comes complete with a double-reverse-tricked-itself-out-of-coherency reveal of the killer.

    A fairly traditional collegiate slasher that entertains but breaks no new ground.

    I don't know what could make this movie seem dumber. Oh, and it's also a remake of What You Did Last Summer

  • Brian Gibson Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
    After these Bratz dolls dump the Corpsey One down a mine shaft, the plot follows, dropping us into dark spaces without any emotional gravitas, real scares, smart twists or even B-movie fun.

    The cast list tells the story: It includes such characters as 'Bra-Clad Sister,' 'Slutty Sister' and (for fans of 'The Man Show'?) 'Trampoline Sister.'

    Unexciting remake of the cheapo 1993 slasher film.
