            When the best a cast has to offer is Kevin Sorbo (“Hercules”) and aged porn star Ron Jeremy, this is a fairly decent indicator that the film is a certified piece of shit. These two are brief cameos in a film filled with actors who somehow manage incompetence to the point of making Jeremy look talented, and the viewing experience of Sorority Party Massacre nearly unbearable. Even in fast-forward this film moves too slow, testing the patience of any viewer’s willingness to endure bad acting, poor direction and an atrociously asinine screenplay, all for the brief moments of sloppy gore and nude scenes from actresses not suited for internet porn.


            The storyline is basically irrelevant to the blood and boobs the filmmakers obviously prefer to focus on, lacking much focus or any logic. There is a poorly constructed excuse to gather a bunch of bitchy sorority girls in a remote location, all under the guise of some kind of award they are all competing for. This idiotic premise is further destroyed by the fact that none of the characters resemble real human beings. It appears that all of the actors are either attempting a comedic approach to the material or a drastically rigid melodramatic tone, and neither compliment the mood of horror. The only thing that can save the audience from the experience of this film are the end credits.


            The special features include an audio commentary track with producer/writer/director Chris W. Freeman and producer/director Justin Jones. The end credits also have indulgent footage of these filmmakers looking deep in thought on set, a comical image after the end of a film which is impossible to take even the slightest bit serious. There are also outtakes and a few deleted scenes. Other features include Paige’s fight scene and the Barney Lumpkin Campaign ad.
