Samara Weaving just makes everything better. ♥️
Everything about this movie screams Goosebumps to the max!
Also, never have the 80s been more in your face. From the neon colored clothes, the spiked up bangs held with a pound of hair gel, playing a record backwards to find a hidden message, trying to levitate people at your slumber party, and just about everything else.
Ohh and those little creatures are creepy, yes. But more cute than anything. I want one!
The music score is perfection (I dies at sleepwalk by Santo & Johnny and Boadicea by Enya)!! 😍 The cast is adorable and extremely likeable (Madchen Amick is was such a babe and the ultimate 90s girl next door!) The incestuous mother/son romance is very Psycho-esque and I adore it -- yet shudder at the thought. The small sleepy town backdrop, with the old graveyard is one of my absolute favorite settings for a film. So many great horror legend cameos. And all the kitty cats are an added bonus. 🤍
The scene with Jerry and Amy in front of the fireplace, just oozes sex. The erotic music playing, Chris Sarandon taking his shirt off and kneeling in front of Amy, passionately kissing her and then passionately biting her 🩸 swoon
Just one of the many things I adore about this movie. My favorite vampire flick and just a top favorite in general.
A true classic that never gets old.
This one just OOZES atmosphere.
The slow burn dread / satan worshipping, just encapsulates that early 80s feel, perfectly! I don't mind one bit that it takes its sweet time, chewing up the scenery and giving us time to be invested in our final girl, before it all leads into cult chaos
As much as I enjoy House On Sorority Row, I don't seem to be as high on it as everyone else is. It feels like your typical 80s slasher to me and nothing really sets it apart or makes it stand out.
The "twist" reveal ending, is as obvious as they come. The kills are mediocre. But there is a sort of high-production value quality, that makes everything seem like an A-tier slasher.
I would best compare this to the likes of Happy Birthday To Me or The Initiation
