Sorority Row , another film that was not screened for critics in advance, wound up with the sort of reviews that justified the decision. The Los Angeles Times called up retired second-string critic Kevin Thomas to sit through a showing of the movie. His conclusion " Sorority Row unleashes an avalanche of kinetically staged chaos but the effect is a glum turnoff." But Roger Moore in the Orlando Sentinel gave the film a left-handed compliment. "It's all cheese," he wrote, "but at least this cheese, for the most part, doesn't stink."
