sorority babes in the slimeball bowl o ramaFor today’s Cheeseball Cinema film, we continue to explore the great b-movies that made up most of the 80’s and what made the 80’s great in the first place. I had seen the title, Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-A-Rama, on IMDB and it peaked my interest almost immediately. The film follows five college co-eds and one bad ass chick in a mall that have to battle an evil genie of sorts. You see, all Lisa (Michelle Bauer) and Taffy (Brinke Stevens) want to do is join the top sorority of their college so they go endure Babs (Robin Stille) evil initiations. While this is going on three college losers Calvin (Andras Jones), Jimmy (Hal Havins), and Keith (John Stuart Wildman) decide to spy on the girls while this is going on, but the trio get caught by Babs. For punishment and as part of the initiations, she’ll make Lisa and Taffy go to the mall to steal a bowling trophy with the guys at the local mall. What they don’t know is while they try to steal a trophy, they let an evil imp out of the trophy and he plays evil games with them. The film also stars Kathi O’Brecht (Lady Avenger) as Rhonda, Carla Baron (Necromancer) as Frankie, Linnea Quigley (The Return Of The Living Dead) as Spider, George “Buck” Flowers (They Live) as the Janitor, and the film was directed by David DeCoteau (Puppet Master III).

There is a reason why this is a b-movie and not an a-lister because there is just way too much cheesiness, but I wouldn’t want it any other way for the fact that it gives life to Cheeseball Cinema. I am a huge fan of Linnea Quigley so just seeing her name alone on IMDB will get me to watch anything with her in it. As far as T&A goes, this movie has plenty of it in certain parts that will satisfy any fan of B-Movies. Some of the acting is pretty good while some leave more to be desired and some of the writing off dialogue could be the reason for that. I really liked the story and how it unfolded because it was actually a different take on horror films involving sororities if you think about it. Could have the imp been a little bit better than what was presented? I’m sure it could have, but with a short budget I’m sure there isnt much that they could have done with it unless that was the look they were going with. The voice of Uncle Impy was done by Michael Sonye (Surf Nazis Must Die) and he kind of gives the old imp a jive kind of attitude with his voice. He was definitely the comedic relief that this film needed for sure. In the end, I actually enjoyed watching this film at times while they are definitely things that I would have done differently. One of the cool things is where most fo the film takes place as it says Plaza Camino on a sign, but it is now known as Westfield Carlsbad in Carlsbad, CA if you’re into visiting real places movies were filmed. On a scale of one being close to an A-List Hollywood film and five being the cheesiest film of all time, I am going to give the film a 3.8 for a final grade.
