Directed by John Christopher and released theatrically in North American porn palaces in 1980, and while it may have been titled and marketed to look like a European import, the cast of American porno movie regulars of the era that pop up in this picture pretty much confirm that there's nothing European about it. It's shot in a cabin somewhere near some snow covered woods, but the location is more than likely somewhere in upstate New York rather than Sweden.
When the film starts, inside the aforementioned cabin, Ingrid (Heather Young, credited as Colleen Anderson), sporting a really bad Swedish accent, is fooling around with Joey Silvera, who she keeps calling Sven. She says 'ja' a lot as he eats her out and the disco music on the soundtrack gets louder once he mounts her missionary style and pumps her twat for a few minutes. He pulls out and blows his load on her stomach and after they're finished they decide they'd better hurry up and get ready for the arrival of her American cousin who will soon be arriving.
Cut to some stock footage of an airport and the pair meet up with the cousin, Anne, played by Erica Havens. Ingrid tells Anne that 've must go to Schtockholm and meet my fvriends' and Sven says 'ja' as they drive around for a few minutes before heading back to the cabin. Anne's feeling tense after her flight and hops into the tub where Ingrid decides to wash her back for her. Of course, one thing leads to another and soon these cousins prove to be of the 'kissin' variety. Ingrid heads to the bedroom for a glass of wine while Anne masturbates. She heads into the bedroom and hops into bed where Ingrid decides to suck on her tits and then eat her pussy.

They head outside and build a snowman and Anne complains that 'you sure can't do anything like this in Brooklyn' and then complains about the buildings in New York just as Sven shows up again, this time with 'some good German beer' and a few of his pals in tow. After a snowball fight everyone heads inside where there are conveniently three guys and three girls now. They all play cards and then decide to have an orgy, because apparently that's what Swedes do after drinking good German beer and playing cards. Cue the goofy music and everyone gets naked and starts fooling around. Anne has no problem getting into the swing of things, sucking cock just as graciously as her cousin and the other mystery girl (Paula Morton) who has shown up to make party. Anne sucks and fucks Roger Caine, Heather Young does the same to Mr. Silvera, and then they do a bit of a do-see-do partner swap and everyone fucks everyone else. This orgy goes on for a long time and makes up roughly half the running time of the movie.
With the group shenanigans over with, Anne and Roger Caine head to Stockholm with Sven and Ingrid for a party. This results in a lot of goofing around in the snow before Roger eats Anne out. Then a few other people show up, I guess we're at the party in Stockholm now, and another orgy breaks out. Samantha Fox shows up here and gets it on with Anne/Erica which is nice to see. While riding their respective cocks, Anne and Ingrid talk about how groovy this Swedish party is, and after a fair bit of doggy style sex and a lot of oral, a few loads are blown and the orgy is done.
Anne is getting ready to go home, she wants to catch her flight, but Roger 'vants to be inside you von last time' and so they head to the bedroom where she gives him head. She rides him cowgirl style and he squirts to finish things off across her nice plump ass. From there we see more stock footage of an airport, and the various Swedes talk about what a good lay she was and how they'd like to go to America to see her one day. THE END.
If you're into seventies orgy footage, this is the film for you as there's a lot of it here, but aside from that the sex is fairly typical. That said, the film is well shot and makes good use of an interesting cast and the ridiculous Swedish accents provide no small amount of unintentional hilarity. I'm not at all sure what any of this has to do with a sorority, as it all takes place in cabins and, erm, Stockholm based orgy rooms (?) but hey, kudos to the marketing guys at 'Jackrabbit Productions' for getting our attention.
This fullframe transfer, which appears to present the film in its original aspect ratio, looks surprisingly sharp and colorful, if a bit faded, even if it is interlaced. The picture quality, for an old XXX film from 1980, looks surprisingly good. There are some specks here and there as well as a moderate amount of grain but this looks to be a film sourced transfer and not a VHS or tape source. The black levels stay strong, the skin tones look natural, and while there are a few scenes that look a bit on the soft side in addition to come mild compression artifacts noticeable in the blacks, overall this is a nice picture. A 'Copyright 2009 VCX' but does appear a few times at the bottom of the screen throughout the movie. This is VCX's method of protecting their properties, so it's understandable that it appears, but it's bound to annoy some purists.
The Dolby Digital Mono soundtrack is a little muffled and not of the best quality, but again, it's taken from an older source so the limitations of the era's technology are going to be there when that's the case. Dialogue is pretty easy to understand, however, and the background music comes through reasonably clear. There aren't a lot of sound effects used in the film, mostly just some random moaning and groaning during the action scenes and these are handled just fine, as are the talkier bits of the movie. Surprisingly enough, this DVD also features a Spanish language dub. The dubbing doesn't always match the lips of the actors but more often than not it comes close. While you probably won't want to watch it this way (unless you only speak Spanish), it's cool to see it included here.
Aside from some tacky animated menus, VCX has included four bonus scenes, the first of which is from Sweet Throat (6:35) and after a fairly lengthy intro it shows off the oral skills of an attractive olive skinned brunette who gives the telephone repairman a blowjob. The second clip is from Vista Valley PTA (4:43) and it follows two students, Richard Pacheco and Dorothy Lemay, who are fooling around in the car. He sucks her great tits and then he eats her pussy and then she gives him head until he blows his load in her mouth. Late for class, they decide to not bother going back. The third clip is from Tower Of Power (8:55) and it features Annette Haven and Herschel Savage. He sucks her tits and then goes down on her before fucking her missionary style on the couch. The fourth and final clip is from Visions Of Clair (4:52) and it's basically a surreal orgy scene with a bunch of people sucking and fucking, one of whom is Annette Haven again, while a narrator tells part of a story (but without the rest of it to add context, it makes no sense).
Rounding out the extras are trailers for Pleasure Palace, Flesh Fever, Tramp and Two At Once, the Legendary Tribute montage of vintage adult movie clips as well as some animated menus, scene selection and a web-link.
Swedish Sorority Girls isn't the sexiest film ever made, not by a long shot, but it is definitely hysterical and VCX's DVD doesn't look or sound bad at all. If all you're looking for is masturbation fodder, you're probably not going to get into this one too much but if you enjoy all the oddities that classic porn can sometimes provide, then definitely check this out. Recommended.
