Accidentally Summoning Demons Between Paddlings, or Thoughts on Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama

Part 80's teen sex comedy and supernatural slasher movie, Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama (1988) starts as out as an Animal House (1978) parody that rapidly descends into a careful what you wish for episode of the Twilight Zone, but with zombies.  The sorority babes are members of the Tri-Delts, and their initiation involves monk’s robes, copious spankings, whipped cream and breaking into a haunted bowling alley and stealing a trophy.
The bowling alley’s not technically haunted; the nerdy teens and a couple sorority pledges accidentally release an evil stop motion gargoyle/imp who grants wishes, but you know very well that those wishes have a catch.  On the way breaking in they meet 80’s Scream Queen Linnea Quigley who you know as Trash from The Return of the Living Dead (1985) as a new wave teen burglar named Spider.
The rest of the sorority babes turn into homicidal zombie witch hags who kill the teens in new and interesting ways including ice machines, severed head bowling and the always popular death by https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCdrUW--Jic  snu-snu.  Unapologetically voyeuristic (it was the 80s), the movie fits in nicely with Troll 2 (1990), Nightof the Demons (1988), and Revenge of the Nerds (1984). 
Be certain to watch out for veteran character actor bathroom George “Buck” Flower from such cinematic highlights as Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS (1975), Escape From New York (1981) and They Live (1988), as the janitor who spends most of the movie trapped in the bathroom.



my first novel?  thanks for asking:)  it’s a the first book in a 4-volume supernatural martial arts series chock full of killer kung-fu witches, haunted carnivals, punk rock assassins, and a 24-hour diner with the best pie in town…
