'Sisters of Death' likely to bore you to death

Sisters of Death (1977)
Starring: Arthur Franz, Claudia Jennings, Cheri Howell, Sherry Boucher, Sherry Alberoni and Paul Carr
Director: Joseph Mazzuca
Rating: Three of Ten Stars

Five women and two men are trapped on the property of a crazed father (Franz) intent on avenging his daughters death seven years earlier during a sorority initiation gone wrong.

"Sisters of Death" is a weak thriller that relies on the characters behaving in illogical and downright idiotic fashions to work. From the moment the five targets of the vengeful father receive invitations to travel to a remote location; to the character who decides she needs a shower, depite the fact there's a murderer hiding in the house; to the "twist ending", this film is a prime of example of lazy scriptwriting. The acting and photography are nothing to cheer about either.

This thing is watchable, and it may be a worthy of a Bad Movie Nite, but it's about as bland as could be. (Oh... and that aforementioned shower scene? Don't get your hopes up, boys. It happens off-screen.)
