A house full of girls can be pretty scary on its own. But add a demented serial killer, and you’ve got yourself a slasher film.

Just in time for Halloween, Sorority Row is about a group of sorority sisters who are being murdered one by one. Most slasher films feature attractive young girls in skimpy clothes running away from a crazy murderer, and it sounds like this one will be a classic example of the genre. Find out if Ella and Marni will get their Halloween thrills from Sorority Row.


1. Listen and Read - Listen to the audio and read the dialog at the same time.

Marni:  That new movie that’s out, Sorority Row...

Ella:  Yes?

Marni:  Have you seen it?

Ella:  No, but you know me, I love those slasher films.

Marni:  I do love a horror film, it’s that time of year where a good horror film’s gotta come out. Interesting, you know…I kind of feel like wow, I’m surprised this hasn’t been done before.

Ella:  I know, it seems like something feels familiar about this. Just the whole girls in skimpy clothes, really pretty girls, they’re going to get killed!

Marni:  Right, right. Sorority girls being killed. Kinda seems like maybe it’s an initiation rite, what do you think?

Ella:  Maybe. I mean there’s gotta be frat guys, you know, the whole nine yards in this movie.

Marni:  So, were you ever in a sorority?

Ella:  No, they banned any type of Greek affiliation, Greek life at my university, so…none of that.

Marni:  I always know a lot more frat guys than I do sorority gals.

Ella:  Yeah, they’re cliquish, so I can see how that would be more apparent.

Marni:  But yeah, I’m excited to see this movie. Good killing spree.

In the U.S., some college students join sororities or fraternities, social clubs where people of the same sex live together in a big house and spend all their time together. Each fraternity and sorority is represented by Greek letters, so sometimes they are referred to as “Greek.” Sororities and fraternities have a reputation for being cliquish and exclusive. They’re also known for having wild parties.

Ella is excited to see the new movie Sorority Row. She thinks it sounds like a typical slasher film. Marni agrees that it’s the perfect time of year to see a horror movie, since Halloween is just a few days away.

At Ella’s university, sororities and fraternities were forbidden. So she wasn’t in a sorority and doesn’t know many sorority girls. Both she and Marni know more frat boys than sorority girls.

Are there sororities and fraternities at universities in your country? Do you know any frat boys or sorority girls? What do you think about slasher movies?
Learn about Marni’s favorite horror movies on her blog.

the whole idea and plot sound silly. We have already seen millions of the same ideas movies. I'm not gonna waist my time watching this school age scary movie. I do enjoy more thriller than horror movie. One of my favorite is first "Butterfly effect", great movie.

قد تخلو الزجاجة من العطر ..
ولكن تبقى الرائحة العطرة عالقة بالزجاجة ..
كما تبقى الذكرى الطيبة عالقة بالقلب ..
هم أولئك الذين ينقشون حبهم بطيب تعاملهم على جدران قلوبنا ..
ويصعب علينا أن ننساهم ..
وأنت أحــــدهم ..

Viet Nam

In my country there is no sorority row, boys and girls, rural or urban people live together in a hostel or dormitory or study together in a university.Of course, groups of students exist depending on what common features their members share. There are fraternities in a university, but normally, it is not allowed for students to form one by themselves. For the horror movies, I don't find them my taste, but if I am invited by friends to watch once or twice I would not mind. In Vietnam, people traditionally own points of views about horror movies that are different from Westerners.
