Sorority Row

Starring Audrina Patridge and Rumer Willis. Directed by Stewart Hendler.
Rated MA 15+  (strong horror violence). 101mins.

When the central characters are college students who have pulled a prank on an obnoxious young man by setting him up to think that he has killed his girlfriend – and then he does, so that they have to conceal the body, well, they aren't particularly likeable.  And it is not easy to be too worried when they start to be picked off on their graduation day by a hooded figure with a deadly weapon.  That is Sorority Row, a concoction of a slasher thriller that does not spend very much time on character development and then starts to kill off extra characters whom one has barely glimpsed (there is a shower scene) for no apparent reason.  While the reason does become clearer at the end when the killer is unhooded, the identity and motivation of the killer is more than a little suspect.  Bruce Willis and Demi Moore's daughter, Rumer, is one of the sorority and Carrie Fisher has to mouthe some lines she probably would never want to write in one of her books.

A rather bypassable thriller.
