bunch of teens are playing volleyball while
school is out along with a weirdo watching them.
One of the friends named Jackie Cassidy (Keely
Christian) decides to throw a slumber party for
her girl friends while her parents are away while
this weirdo seems to stalk her house.
A new cute guy next door named Ken (Brittain
Frye) is invited to her house meanwhile a
neighbor named Morgan (M.K. Harris) is spying on
everyone with his telescope while the party
really gets going.
A bunch of guys try to join the party too while
they will do anything in order to get in even if
it means pulling a bunch of pranks.
However, a maniac with a power drill seems to do
away with everyone one by one and shortly they
find out that Ken has a spilt personality and
that his uncle was a retired police offer who
committed suicide and blames everyone for his
death in which he locks everyone in the house
while doing his deadly deeds.
Okay I was looking forward to
checking this movie out when I rented it at my
local video store in which I was wondering what
happened afterwards to Russ Thorn since he was
last seen as a ghost portraying a 50's greaser
rock star with a drill at the end of his guitar.
I see a bunch of teens playing volleyball with a
weirdo watching them play which gives the film to
a nice cheesy start making you think that it's a
summer slasher for sure. Then afterwards one of
the friends goes to her vehicle and looks around
wondering if someone is watching her which seems
cheesy cause its daylight and usually this kind
of thing happens at night. Then the driller
killer kills her in her car but yet you don't
know who the killer is and I think to myself.
"C'mon Russ show yourself!".
Of course the party is about to start with the
friends entering the house which is hosted by a
girl next door named Jackie Cassidy which looks
like that you'd wanna join in too but then the
story falls flat later on since it doesn't look
like that these girls are really having fun and
just pretending to be.
Yet we have some teenage boys trying to get in
since that's the traditional SPM
routine as well as them trying to scare the
One of them pays a pizza girl for her shirt in
order to deliver it and get into the house which
seems like a total joke. At least the writers
knew on how to have a pizza delivered like in the
first SPM flick. However, there
was a different twist. Then the mysterious
driller killer follows the pizza girl and does
her in which seemed creepy but that was one of
the only good moments in this film so far.
Then there's strip teases and a cute guy named
Ken invited to the party in which he fornicates
with the girl named Juliette who invited him
over. Suddenly this mysterious killer kills her
and puts her in a plastic bag but all of this
looked so terribly done.
Next we find out that Ken is the killer in which
he kills one of the guys who tries to go search
for help and it wasn't strongly written in during
the struggling moments that they have with each
other as you think to yourself "What
gives?" Automatically by this time I knew
this one had no relationship to the first two
flicks but apparently the film was going to be
under a different name in which I can't
understand why they didn't. Maybe because this
killer uses a power drill just like in the first
two as well as having beautiful girls having a
slumber party while school is out just like in
the first two.
Ken goes into his van where there's satanic
pentagrams, candles and dead bodies in the
vehicle while he plans to do his next killing
which seemed impressive but once again it falls
flat when he enters the house and decides to go
on a killing spree with his drill in which none
of this looked believeable at all as well as the
victims trying to escape. There's even a moment
where one of them named Maria tries to talk Ken
into stopping at what he's doing so he's
distracted. For a long time he puts the drill
aside and none of the other girls make any effort
to grab it and do him in. It goes to show what
little intelligance the vicitims have in order to
survive a massacre.
The writing is so god awful especially for the
character Ken when he's supposed to act demented
and menacing that you'd wanna puke it's so
amateurishly done along with the performances.
Might I mention the survivors try to escape
through a basement window which seems to be
another traditional unintelligent way on escaping
in a typical slasher film when nothing else works
and seems to take their time while panicking at
the same time while this killer is on their tail.
Bottom line is everything about this film was
terrible except for the music score but that's
about it. I found this one to be a true insult to
the first two films not that they were any great
either but alot better than this one. If you
haven't seen this film yet trust me you're not
missing out on it at all. Plus on the back of the
video box cover there's stills from Sorority
House Massacre 2 in which I couldn't
understand why they were placed on since it was a
totally different film.
The acting is very bad but some of
them seem to try their best so let's see what I
can dig up here.
Christian (Jackie Cassidy) played the virgin
type of role like you'd see in a Jamie Lee
Curtis type of scream queen fashion. She
seems to do okay in some spots and trying to act
as natural as possible but yet she acts too over
the top in some spots. However she knew on how to
act raging in the end of her performance and
showed the odd energy in other certain spots too.
Her talents were so so.
Brittain Frye (Ken) was supposed to play the
heartthrob gone wrong in the film but he looks so
pretty boy fake as if he took plastic surgery to
have the kid next door looks. His acting is even
worst in which he is not at all convincing as the
driller killer with his dark humor in which he
seriously needs acting lessons. He has had
experience in a daytime soap opera and gigs like
that in which there's not much talent in shows
Maria Ford (Maria) looks like she was on
crack as she was so frail looking and trying to
look lustful but too homely looking. Her acting
was off in many spots too but she tried to pick
it up whenever she got frightened by the terrors
going on at the slumber party so she showed some
descent energy here and there.
David Lawrence (Frank) played the nice guy
and flirtatious type in which he seemed to do
okay playing this kind of role although he wasn't
very spectacular but better than most of the cast
members here. His looks seemed to do more of the
David Greenlee (Duncan) really suited the
part as a dweeby type in the film with his looks
as right away that's what you would think.
However, he seemed to be just another line reader
and not really getting into character at all.
M.K. Harris (Morgan) has
the key supporting role here as the neighbor and
seems to bring some decent timing with his
comedic performance and knows how to portray a
character but like the rest of the cast he wasn't
anything too special. Yet he can prove to be a
worthy character actor.
Actresses like Maria Ford,
Lulu Wilson and Brandi Burket
take off their tops barebreasted while doing a
striptease for fun in a living room of a house.
Lulu Wilson is barebreasted in bed while
fornicating and later on she walks into a bathtub
with her butt briefly revealed.
Maria Ford has her blouse stripped down
exposing her breasts while she is pinned to the
Lots of bodies are drilled in which
looked quite graphic
A girls insides are gutted out
A hook is stabbed into the killer
Lots of bloodsheds
There's lots of cheesy shots on a
volleyball game as well as a good shot on
supporting actor Yan Birch sitting on
the sand and staring at them which was nicely
shot by making the flick look mysterious.
There's a nice shot on bit part actress Devon
Jenkin walking to her car looking a little
nervous and spotting if someone is following her
in which the direction on this looked a bit
corny. Yet there's a great shot on her in her car
with a great shocked shot on her while a hand
grabs her and a nice camera shot looking down on
the seat with a drill grinding through the seat.
There's a scene with Keely Christian entering
her house and supporting actor M.K. Harris approaching
her with good shots on one another on her
screaming in surprise as well as him with his
wide eyes screaming too in which the direction on
all of this looked extremely corny and cheesy.
There's a direction on supporting actor Garon
Grigsby knocking on the door and trying to
call to the people inside which lacks big time
not making this moment believeable but there's a
nice angle camera shot on Brittain Frye
wearing a mask and staring at him with a good
shot on Grigsby looking frightened but
yet when he panicks pounding on the door once
again the directing on him looked incredibly
wooden and lacking.
There's a scene with Maria Ford talking
to Christian about guys in the backyard
which looked way too acted out and not realistic
There's also a real corny direction between
supporting actor David Greenlee talking
to bit part actress Marta Kober as a
pizza girl offering him money to switch shirts in
order to deliver a pizza to get in which Mattison
made this moment look ridiculous on how she
directed the two.
There's a nice dark shot on Kober
walking in the street to her car with a nice shot
on Frye following her wearing the mask
as well as a good shot on him holding his drill.
There's some cheesy shots on actresses like Brandi
Burkett, Ford and Lulu Wilson doing
a strip tease and partying out in the living room
which looked way too acted out and not natural at
all as if they were forced to do this.
There's many good shots between Frye and
Wilson getting it on with a sex scene
but their reactions are so phony it's not even
There's a nice moment with David Frank
acting charming towards Christian and
trying to act romantic towards her which looked
not too badly done.
There's a moment with Frye crying after
finding out one of the girls were murdered which
terrible wasn't even the word for this in which
it was both by the directing and acting too.
There's struggling moments between Frye
and supporting actor David Kriegal in a
warehouse in which this looked sloppily done and
not energised enough. Ho hum.
There's good camera takes on Frye in his
van with candles surrounding him and pentagrams
along with shots on dead bodies while he looks at
a photo along with him picking up his drill which
seemed impressively directed.
There's a cheesy attacking approach with Frye
entering the house with the drill and trying to
act menacing which really fell flat as Mattison
directed this piece very amateurishly along with
the cast trying to escape screaming which even
looked terribly done as well.
There's a scene with Ford getting scared
and trying to talk to Frye pleading to
him as well as good close up shots on him taking
off her blouse which looked fairly good as well
as a shot on her trying to get the drill.
There's a great shot on Christian
screaming in rage and constantly plunging the
drill down and back up which looked energetic and
probably Mattison at her best work ever.
All in all Mattison was NOT born to
direct and made her work fairly amateurish.
great low keyboard playing with the thumping
moments too which really has a suitable sound for
the mysterious driller killer as well as some odd
bonging sounds too. There's also some decent
chiming music during the opening and closing
credits all brought together by Jamie Sheriff.
also many cheesy music scores in the film in
which nothing of it will come to your mind making
all of it sound forgettable. Yet there are the
odd good one's too with some dance type music but
some of the others have annoying screechy guitar
You're not being nice!!!
