Slasher flick scary but fun

Cape Argus - - LIFESTYLE - MPHO RANTAO

LALA Kent is known for be­ing fea­tured on the re­al­ity tele­vi­sion show Van­der­pump Rules on E! En­ter­tain­ment, but this time she has en­tered a new di­men­sion of show­biz: be­ing a di­rec­tor and ac­tress for her first movie – a col­lege hor­ror slash flick called The Row.

Star­ring Kent as the lead, The

Row tells of a young girl, Ri­ley, ar­riv­ing for her first day of col­lege after be­ing dropped off by her fa­ther (Randy Cou­ture), who we learn is a sus­pended po­lice of­fi­cer.

Ri­ley and her best friend make plans to join a soror­ity. The hor­ror slasher part of the film be­gins when one of the soror­ity mem­bers is stabbed to death out­side in lin­gerie and a robe, all while a rave party is hap­pen­ing where Ri­ley and her best friend are get­ting drunk and high.

Once the body of the soror­ity mem­ber is found in a com­pletely dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tion, the fear of be­ing killed starts to set in for the girls.

They re­spond by tak­ing molly and get­ting drunk.

More girls and guys be­gin to get killed off one by one by a masked slasher, ex­cept for Ri­ley, who is try­ing to fig­ure out the rea­son be­hind the killings while try­ing to deal with her hov­er­ing cop fa­ther, who is also try­ing to solve the case.

This movie is 87 min­utes of col­lege frat par­ties in­ter­spersed with bod­ies be­ing hacked up, with lots of gra­tu­itous nu­dity – but that makes it a great movie to watch if you feel like hav­ing a lazy Sun­day with pop­corn and al­co­hol (trust me, you’re go­ing to need both).
