another fun but underwhelming exploitation "remake"
One of several features commissioned for the cable "Rebel Highway" series--which asked interesting new directors/scenarists to liberally "remake" classic 1950s drive-in exploitation titles--this isn't a patch on Roger Corman's original 1957 "Sorority Girl." Like the latter, it portrays a seductive pathological liar and general mean girl who infiltrates a college sorority and quickly manages to wreak havoc with all the members, plus their boyfriends. It also echoes the original's poor-little-rich-girl theme in showing just how callous and shallow her mother is. But the B&W original is crude and lurid yet psychologically forceful (even shocking) in a way this slicker, more cynical, glibly p.c. update can't match. Part of it is that mores have changed so much since 1957, we can't possibly be shocked by the same content. But this "Confessions" is trite, sentimental, stereotypical and hyperbolic--not improving on its original in any way. It's semi-ironic cheese. The original movie's anti-heroine was a great troubled Z-noir figure; here she's just another sexy young "bad girl."
