Sexy college juniors Cassidy (Briana Evigan), Jessica (Leah Pipes), Claire (Jamie Chung), Ellie (Rumer Willis) and Megan (Audina Patridge) are sorority sisters sworn to trust, secrecy and solidarity, no matter what. But their loyalty is tested when a prank at a raucous house party goes terribly wrong and Megan ends up brutally murdered. Rather than confess to the crime and risk destroying their bright futures, the girls agree to hide the bloody corpse and keep their secret forever.

Fast forward one year to graduation. As they prepare to say goodbye to the house and each other, the girls plan one last alcohol-fuelled bash on Sorority Row, confident their dark secret remains buried. But does it? As the party rages in the front yard, the bedrooms and the hot tub, the girls receive cell phone videos taken the night of Megan's murder from an anonymous sender who threatens to forward the videos to the police. Then, one by one, the sisters and their unsuspecting boyfriends are stalked by an unseen killer.

Has Megan returned from the dead to exact her revenge? Or was their secret discovered by someone else - someone now determined to make them pay? Trapped, the girls race to figure out which of them let their secret slip, who wants them dead, and how to fight back as the bodies pile up and their beloved sorority house explodes into flames. A heart-stopping climax reveals the killer's shocking identity in this suspenseful, hip and sexy remake of the 1983 classic horror thriller.

The movie was originally intended to be R-rated, but after the success of 2008's Prom Night (2008/I) remake, Summit Entertainment planned to trim it to a PG-13 rating. However, they changed their mind, and decided to keep the movie as a solid R-rated movie.

Briana Evigan had a line in her previous theatrical feature, Step Up 2: The Streets (2008), saying "It's like I've landed in an episode of "The Hills" (2006). In Sorority Row (2009), she ironically co-stars alongside "Hills" cast member, Audrina Patridge.

Was originally supposed to be released on October 2nd but was bumped up to a September 11th release, instead.

Leah Pipes originally read for the part for the character of Ellie. After auditoning for Ellie, she auditioned for the part Jessica. After a second audition for the role of Jessica, as well as a makeover of hair extensions and wardrobe change, she was given the part.

In August 2009, the British Board of Film Classification originally classified this film at '18', meaning that no one in the UK under 18 years of age would be able to see it. E1 Films (the UK distributor) asked the Board to reconsider, and in a rare move, they decided to pass the film uncut at a the lower '15' category instead.
