After an innocent prank on the Sorority House’s owner goes terribly wrong and she ends up dead, a group of Sorrority girls start getting murdered one by one during their graduation party.
Nothing can prepare you for what happens when she fights back.
A sorority house owner ‘House Mother’ is sick of all the partying and misbehaving by the girls in the sorority and wants them out but they refuse to cancel their graduation party that they are hosting at the house. Instead, the girls decide to play a prank on the her, but it goes terribly wrong and she ends up dead. With the party starting they have to think fast and hide the body. Soon afterward they realize the not-so-well hidden body is missing. Instead of enjoying their graduation party, the anxiety of being caught starts to build as they suddenly start disappearing one by one. This film is a classic! It’s entertaining from start to finish and is packed with suspense. Just when you think you know what’s going on, the story takes a twist that will catch you by surprise. There’s never a dull moment in this film with its generous amount of kills – which are pretty good. What is really great about this film is that it doesn’t only focus on the kills either, the storyline is very well done as well. I highly recommend this film to you vintage gore lovers out there if you haven’t already seen it.
