31 Days of Horror 4: Originals vs. Remakes DAY 23

The House on Sorority Row (1983) vs. Sorority Row (2009)
Not the best movie by any means but has that '80's horror B-movie charm.
Housemother (Lois Kelso Hunt) has a falling out with seven sorority sisters who then plot revenge. This plot leads to an accidental death. The girls cover up the crime and then are targeted by someone who knows what they did.
This film falls in the same category as Troll 2. These films are so bad that you just need to experience them once. Some parts of the movie are interesting and it does try to add something new to the slasher films but it's not Halloween or Friday the 13th.
I wouldn't recommend this movie to everyone but for those of you who love really low-budget '80's slasher movies, this is definitely for you.
This is actually going to be really quick. The remake has style over substance but everything else is just awful.
There are no scares, no thrills, no humor, no character and no interesting plot. It is the definition of a wasted attempt if there was ever one.
So, which is better?
They’re both so awful it’s hard to pick one. Yet, I’ll have to go with the original, only because it falls under the category of so bad it’s good. The remake is just bad.
