Flicks: Sorority Babes In The Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988)

If Revenge Of The Nerds was spliced together with Leprechaun then the results would very much like this movie.

Brought to the film-going public by the short-lived Urban Classics distribution company[1], who released 6 films in two years in 1987-1989, Sorority Babes In The Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988) is notable as one of only two films in which legendary 1980s scream queens Linnea Quigley (Return of the Living Dead, Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers), Brinke Stevens (Slumber Party Massacre), and Michelle Bauer (Erotic Misadventures of the Invisible Man, Night of the Living Babes, Lust for Frankenstein) appear together. The other being the much less watchable Dr. Alien (1989).

Sorority Babes stars Linea Quigley who unveiled a picture perfect Hollywood boob job on the set of Return Of The Living Dead as punk rock tramp "Trash" in 1985. This one singular performance guaranteed her a long future in slashers and horror films. She went on to star in Nightmare On Elm Street Part IV (1988), Pumpkinhead II (1994), Corpses Are Forever (2003) along with 121 other roles and counting. It's also important to note that both Stevens and Bauer both are very actively working on films and television today.

The film is like Revenge Of The Nerds with a raging hard-on. Aside from Miss Quigley's bodacious rack the film is full of R rated nudity and but no gore what so ever. Quigley, as "Spider" the tough as nails proprietor of said Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama, unwittingly hosts a massacre for a series of boneheads and bimbos when a cursed bowling trophy awakens a terrible evil entity.

The evil entity in this case being talking shaved Gremlin affectionately dubbed "Uncle Impie" voiced by the writer and composer Michael Sonye (Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, Breakfast of Aliens). "Uncle Impie" goes about granting the motley crew's wishes and then watches them go disastrously wrong.

Sorority Babes' director David DeCoteau is another horror movie legend who still makes horror films today including My Stepbrother Is a Vampire! (2013) and A Talking Pony? (2013) both of which are listed as in post-production currently.

[1] = Urban Classics was a Charles Band, Full Moon Entertainment's founder, funded distribution house. Sorority Babes was released by Full Moon on DVD in 1999.
