Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama - Review - @BrandonCSites / #Horror

Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-o-Rama (1987) ***
D: David DeCoteau
C: Andras Jones, Linnea Quigley, Robin Stille, John Stuart Wildman, Brinke Stevens, Michelle Bauer, Hal Havins, George 'Buck' Flower
P: A group of sorority pledges with a few nerds in tow accidentally unleash an imp after breaking into the local bowling alley, after hours, for pledge night. At first, the imp makes their wildest dreams come true, but as the night progresses his evil nature is revealed. 

With a title like that, how can you go wrong? A camp masterpiece with an outlandish premise, outlandish situations, cheap effects, outrageous costuming and just the right amount of humor, horror and naked girls. Well paced, to the point with a once in a lifetime B movie cast. Linnea Quigley has her best role to date, getting to show that she has a girly side, while still maintaining her tough ass exterior. Robin Stille camps it up as a paddle wielding, dominatrix outfitted sorority babe. Andras Jones does the cute, charming, nerd thing well. Overall, the entire cast is amusing. 

The 70's was a far more groundbreaking era for horror, but plenty of fans look at the 80's with a certain fondness. That fondness stems from the fact that horror films in the 80's had a certain sense of fun to them. They weren't always enlightening, but they knew how to keep people entertained. Films like Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama are the reason why so many horror fans look upon this era with a sense of fondness. It's just a fun, entertaining film! What more could you want? [R] 77 mins.
