Rich girl Sabra Tanner (Susan Cabot) is a sadistic, neurotic college student who is unhappy because her mother (Fay Baker) doesn’t love her and because her “sisters” in the sorority don’t appreciate her.
Sabra spends her time not in the study halls but in trying to dig out all the scandals she can find about her sorority sisters.
A weak-minded chubby little pledge called Ellie (Barbara Cowan), a girl named Tina (June Kenney) who has managed to get into “man trouble” (she’s pregnant) and a campus leader named Rita (Barboura Morris), who is in line for a big position in college government are all blackmailed by the vile Sabra.
Director Roger Corman was presented with the script by AIP and asked to make the film as quickly and cheaply as possible. He shot the film on the real USC campus and rented the sorority house rather than building a set.
Susan Cabot was aged 30 when she portrayed Sabra – a little long in the tooth to be a sorority girl. In fact, the majority of the so-called college girls look like they should have graduated long ago.
