Brinke Stevens, who was Taffy in the original Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama, is behind the camera, with a script by Kent Roudebush, who has written several films for Full Moon including several of the Evil Bong films. I say written but so much of this is little copy and paste from the first movie, except for two great ideas; Kelli Maroney is the matron for the sorority, Auntie Snake, and is the sister of Linnea Quigley’s Spider (who shows up in the Todd Sheets* film Clownado) and Stevens and Michelle Bauer’s Taffy and Lisa characters show up as ghosts when the imp (Derek Jeremiah Reid) pops up out of the bowling trophy.
David DeCoteau left over creative differences — one wonders if it wasn’t “Hey, you’re just making the same movie all over again” — and there’s no Linnea, but you know, I was charmed when Brinke and Bauer showed up and I’m equally happy that Brinke was given a chance to direct this. It’s a little over an hour long, which I can appreciate, and while none of it will be as memorable to me as the original, I did like Bitsy (Glory Rodriguez), the tough girl with a spider patch on her leather vest and who fulfills the same role as Quigley, the only female not dumb enough to make a wish.
The one big difference I can think of from the past as when one of the frat guys makes out with one of the sorority sisters, he realizes that her pleasure is important, so he lifts her onto a ball-polishing machine that vibrates.
Now that Stevens has her first movie done, I’d like to see her grow as a director and try something else, something bigger and grow to make a movie that goes beyond the past. I know she can do it.
*Sheets must love the original because he also made Sorority Babes in the Dance-a-Thon of Death.
