This remake of Mark Rosman's early-'80s House On Sorority Row (and it seems his screenplay Seven Sisters) gets an annoying modern take with a bunch of ultra-nasty and immoral sorority sisters at the focal point. Completely self-obsessed, basically pathetic, these bitches play a prank on one of their cheating boyfriends. This however goes horribly wrong leading to a death. They vow to cover it up, but at graduation, the dead seems to have risen to get its revenge. With the incorporation of technology like cellphones and GPS becoming part of the narrative, the basics of this movie is the recipe slasher with an outfit and a weapon. The movie makers even fess up to following these rules (as set out in Wes Craven's Scream joke, highlighting the clichés, but creating the template for movies to follow).
One of the girls seem to be wracked with guilt, another is pathetically useless, while the others don't give a damn. The killer, dressed in a graduation gown and hood with a wheel spanner converted into four deadly blades, systematically knocks off the girls (in a variety of orally linked fashions).
It may be an obvious guess who the killer is, but the red herrings naturally get thrown at the audience.

Several extra features look at the making of the movie from various perspectives, on-set tales, and deleted scenes & outtakes, which as usual, is pretty lame.
