SORORITY BABES AT THE SLIMEBALL BOWL-O-RAMA
Sadly, the attention-getting title is the best thing there is about the Sorority Babes at the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama. Needless to say, there is little in the film that comes with any of the cocky verve that the title suggests. The film is cheap, badly made and particularly badly acted. David DeCoteaus pace is pedestrian and the film criminally dull. At most, it descends to much campy overacting. The puppet effects, which have bizarrely been voiced over with what sounds like a hip streetwise Black man, look extremely cheap and the zombie effects even cheaper.
David DeCoteau was one of the prime instigators of the Scream Queen fad and Sorority Babes at the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama features two of its most prominent names actresses Linnea Quigley and Brinke Stevens. Expectedly, all the women in the film take the opportunity to disrobe at least once and DeCoteau contrives an entirely gratuitous scene where the guys peep in on Brinke Stevens showering and washing whipped cream off her body. There is an amusing performance from C.D. LaFleur (in actuality Hollywood big guy George Buck Flower hiding under a pseudonym) as a deaf janitor.
There was a sequel, produced by David DeCoteau, with Sorority Babes in the Dance-a-Thon of Death (1991).
