Tagline: Who'll survive the final exam?

Plot: A little girl's brother kills the whole family but her (she escapes by hiding in the basement). He is committed, and she grows up with a new family, eventually going to college, where she joins a sorority. Due to a memory block, she doesn't remember that the sorority house was her childhood house. Her brother senses her presence in the house and escapes so he can finish the job he was unable to complete.

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again? No.

This would be an average 80s slasher flick if it weren't so slow and dull.  Most of the kills are the same (a knife to the stomach), which can be considered kind of original since most of these types of films from this era were all out to give you wild and creatively fun kills.  There's a little nudity which helps (another staple of the genre) but everything else is just mediocre and there's nothing special about it.   Judging by the score on IMDb the sequel looks just as bad although I see there's a ton more nudity.  That's an improvement but are the kills any better?
