For a TV movie, this is pretty good, and probably one of the best of the Sorority flicks I’ve watched over the past week. Like most of the modern TV series, it’s got quite a fair budget, which brings with it better actors, script and talent behind the camera. It’s got quite a big feeling of Dawson’s Creek with realistic characters trying to find their way in the world, with quite a few being taken out of a cliché pigeon hole.
Samantha Willow’s (Leighton Meester) joins a Sorority, swearing an oath and taking part in the various Pledge’s which are required. Strange things begin to happen around the house and it’s not long before the girls are all dying of mysterious circumstances and the tale of a young girl Nikki, (Jessica Huras) whose pledge involving a coffin went drastically wrong the previous year, soon comes to light. It’s all good stuff. Some nice scares and inventive deaths, reminiscent of Final Destination. Meester (Gossip Girl) offers a great lead performance, supported by Agam Darshi, Kailin See and a stunning performance from Lisa Marie Caruk who offers a great deal to this film. It’s nicely filmed and very easy to watch.
