Plot Summary:
"A group of girls staying at a sorority house clash with the house's owner, who wants them out. They decide to play a prank on her, but it goes awry and she winds up dead. Panicking, the girls try to hide the body, but someone (or something) witnessed the crime and begins to stalk them."

Highly regarded as one of the better 's campus slashers, I finally managed to check this one out as it recently received a release on DVD in the UK.

sorority sisters play a prank on their house mother to get back at her for ruining their fun over the past four years. But when the prank backfires the girls are left with a body to dispose of and a party to plan. With the party in full swing later that night however, the guest list begins to dwindle.

Well I have to say unlike many of the often mentioned 's slashers this one does live up to it's reputation among die hard genre fans.

The basic premise is simple but effectively orchestrated by Director Mark Rosman, making the film a fun watch and good addition to the sorority slashers sub-genre.

There are a few familiar faces amongst the cast Eileen Davidson from 'Days of our Lives' and Harley Jane Kozak and the rest of the cast are very good too, with the exception of Jodi Draigie as Morgan who is about as convincing as Dick Van Dyke's cockney accent in 'Mary Poppins'. Yes she is possibly the worst actress I have ever seen in a horror movie!!

The scares are good, the chase scenes are suspenseful thanks to Richard Band's orchestral score and the deaths are quite bloody too.

OVERALL SUMMARY
If you are a big fan of the slasher hey-day and you haven't seen this yet then you need to NOW!!
