Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama

--Reviewed by Lindy Loo

E surprised me by ordering me a copy of this and sending it directly to me in the mail a couple weeks ago. I finally got around to watching it this weekend, and MAN was it terrible.

Plotline: As part of a sorority initiation, a couple of girls are told to steal a trophy from a local bowling-alley. Accompanied by a trio of nerdy boys, they accidentally let loose an imp that was living in the trophy, and he wreaks havoc on them all, trapping them in the bowling alley, and killing most of them.

Scariness factor: The imp looks like a hand-puppet. The two girls he puts under his control are about as frightening as whipped cream. And the special fx are terrible. So... no.

Gross-Out Factor: Again, this movie looked like it had a budget of, say, $10, so not much in the way of special fx.

Complaints: E and I agreed that this truly may have been the worst movie we've ever seen. As with most campy gems, I suppose this is a good thing. The movie is rife with TONS AND TONS of incongruities--for example, when the girls are being paddled at initiation, there are at least 1/2 dozen women in robes doing the initiating--suddenly most of them vanish and leave only the three main sorority girls. That and there's TONS of gratuitous nudity. They set up very dubitable reasons to have people nekkid or half-nekkid during most of the movie. For example, after one initiate gets sprayed with whipped cream, she spends a RIDICULOUSLY long time showering to get it off. In one shot, she'll be completely clean finally, but two seconds later when they cut back, she of course still has some whipped cream on those bare nipples of hers. The special fx are terrible. There is a bad-ass female character in it who's named Snake. Everybody is totally 1980s. The acting is horrible. And the storyline makes little sense.

High Points: See complaints.

Overall: Lord--I'd be surprised if you were able to stumble across this crap-fest without having to look around for it, but if you do, might as well drink a few beers and enjoy yourself.

Grade: F (but an A in the world of camp)

How can you call gratitious nudity in a film like this one a "complaint"? That is part and parcel to the 80's horror film and a shower scene no less? That's not a complaint, that's an instant classic!

Ha ha ha. Like I said: the complaints are also the high points! ; )
