Bad acting and cheap thrills take over Sorority Row.

The only scary part about Sorority Row is the acting. When Audrina Patridge from MTV's The Hills is cast in the movie, you just know it will be horrible. Scenes in the film are expectedly violent, with the sorority girls being killed off in terrifying and gory ways. For instance, an entire wine cooler bottle is shoved down a sorority girl's throat, causing her to choke on the liquid and die. Girls are called "bitches" and "whores." There is sexual content galore, from a woman's bare torso being shown in the shower, to constant innuendo, suggestive dancing and clothing, boyfriend-girlfriend dynamics, and a particularly disturbing scene involving an older man preparing for sex with one of the sorority girls. Since this is a sorority themed movie, there are shots of raunchy parties and underage drinking. This film provides nothing of value to the slasher genre. My advice to you: skip this one.

Lots of violence and sex

the movie has one character who is willing to put herself in jail for a dumb prank. Overall the movie was fine. Has some talks of sex. Has nudity throughout the movie. Has some sexuality. The killings were gruesome. The girls acted like high school mean girls looking for drama. A lot of cursing throughout movie.
