A sorority prank goes wrong resulting in a sister's death in a horror clearly aimed at aficionados of the Prom Night remake. Eight months after the unfortunate accident, the remaining girls are celebrating graduation when a hooded killer starts picking them off in a slapdash slasher that fails to avoid the pitfalls plaguing other maniac-on-the-loose knock-offs. Director Stewart Hendler's stylish-looking update of 1983 cult original The House on Sorority Row (renamed House of Evil in the UK) discards the mutant-baby revenge plot and goes for the obvious whodunnit route, with the coven of sassy sisters indulging in a cartoonish bitch-fest that gets increasingly funnier and more inappropriate as the film wends its way to an unremarkable reveal. (The murders - with a customised tyre iron - may not look that nice, but the outfits sure are pretty.) Carrie Fisher gives the dullness a lift as a gun-toting, no-nonsense den mother, but Rumer Willis (daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore) barely convinces as one of the ill-fated girls of Theta Pi.
