Looking Back: Sorority Row

Sorority Row(2009)

Directed by Stewart Hendler

Starring Brianna Evigan, Leah Pipes, Rumer Willis, Jamie Chung, Audrina Page, Julian Morris, Margo Harshman, Matt Lanter, and Carrie Fisher

I just watched Sorority Row the other night again, and I have to say that this slasher is enjoyable. How else can I describe this movie? It has a great cast, the engaging story has a nice whodunit element, and the kills are very creative. If you haven’t seen this House on Sorority Row remake, I’d highly recommend checking this one out and adding it to your collection. My score: 8.5/10(Add to your collection)

Underrated Slasher Gems: Offspring

Offspring(2009)

Starring Pollyanna McIntosh, Amy Hargreaves, Art Hindle, Erick Kastel, and Spencer List

I checked out Offspring, and I have to commend the filmmakers for tackling such a provocative subject.   Not to give any spoilers, but this film is the first in a trilogy that centers on a group of cannibal-feral people who come into contact with the modern community.   With this “exchange” comes a horrific and brutal battle between the “primitive” and the “civilized.” I admit that I wish Offspring gave more of a backstory of the feral people, but it didn’t take away from the fact that this film provided an intense horror experience.   Add this one, along with The Woman and Darlin,’ to your collection.   My score: 9/10.

The Collector and The Collection: Ushering in the New Age of Horror…

The Collector and The Collection are very effective horror films. Both have set a new standard in the Home Invasion/slasher genre, with a twisted character who is very unique in his methods of killing, making him an iconic figure along the lines of Jason Voorhees, Micheal Myers, and Leatherface. This series evokes a very tense, brutal mood that keeps you engaged and your heart pounding. Not only does the story flow well, the killer’s contraptions provides some very creative deaths. The second one sets up the long-awaited third entry, and I am eagerly anticipating it. If you’re looking for some unique horror movies, check out both of these purchase-worthy slashers. My score: 9/10.
