Really Awful Movies: Ep 312 – Sorority Row

Look out, Sorority House Massacre, stand aside, Splatter University, watch out Graduation Day…you get the gist. Here comes Sorority Row, a middling remake of the underrated House on Sorority Row from the slasher Golden Era.

Like the orginal, Sorority Row is propelled by an accidental death, one of those sorority / frat pranks that went a little too far. And someone has to pay! That means, the viewer has to sit through this slog. Actually, that’s a bit unfair. It’s not THAT bad. Bad, but not ungodly bad.

On this episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast, we are in remake territory again, not to mention accidental death territory too…back to back weeks with similar themes.

Welcome back all those new and returning university students returning to (possibly) school during a pandemic. It’s all Greek to us.

Really Awful Movies: Ep 311 – Unhinged remake

A remake of the 1982 video nasty ‘Unhinged,‘ which we podcasted in an earlier episode of the Really Awful Movies Podcast. In this one, four best friends, young women, decide to take the back roads travelling to a wedding in the English countryside, much to their peril. Dah da dum!

The foursome is off to enjoy fun and frivolity, but finds anything but at a local gas station, where a farm hand is giving them the stink eye and behaving in a way that’s all sorts of creepy. When he meets up with them on a deserted “short cut,” (don’t you just hate those?) later, all things go haywire and the girls put up quite the fight.

This is NOT the new Russell Crowe thriller, people.

This is a rebooting/reworking of a regional Pacific Northwest horror film that most people have no clue about. But c’mon, a bride, and shears a la The Burning? What’s not to like! This one is a doozy, dumb, but undeniably well acted for what it is, with a dynamite score to boot. So is Unhinged a revenge thriller a la The Last House on the Left? Is this a barely sober Oliver Reed wandering around a big sprawling creepy mansion in Burnt Offerings? Not quite, to both.
