Sorority House Massacre is the sole film written and directed by Carol Frank. In this Roger Corman-produced film, a young student named Gail unwittingly returns to the site of a familiar crime when she stays with friends at their sorority house over Memorial Day Weekend. The house, as all good houses in horror do, elicits unwelcome memories and a deadly mystery. Cue deja-vu and dream interpretation that connects to the escaped madman on the loose. SHM is a little bit Halloween, a little bit The Slumber Party Massacre, but what makes the film unique is its focus on kind female friendship… until their very end.
SHM was later marketed as part of the “MASSACRE” collection in the 1980s. Related, Frank was Amy Holden Jones’ assistant on The Slumber Party Massacre.
