This derivative campus-slasher nonsense (released directly to home video) pits a houseful of sorority sisters against a generic black-clad killer, who manages at least some degree of variety in his methods, which range from simple strangulation to the slashing of throats with an LP record. The usual barrage of red herrings is employed, while the vacuous potential victims inexplicably remain at the murder site and wait patiently to be killed. This, of course, provides ample screen time for the young ladies to disrobe -- which they do quite frequently. Despite a fairly slick look, this is merely a jumble of worn-out slasher clich├ęs -- all of which had already become tiring ten years prior to this film's release.
