The scary antagonist is a woman (originally planned as a man but changed to a woman during production), but other than that the portrayal of women in the movie is quite disappointing. There's a stereotypical mom, a stereotypical "hottie" sorority and a stereotypical "goth" sorority, and none are given important roles.

Eliza disagreed with the rating and said:
The sorority girls talk about the competition and they're all named in the credits, but not the actual movie. I was disappointed they didn't show Mike meeting Cecelia.

There is only one named female in the movie, the antagonist, and if there are any others none of them talk to each other

Janni - The Mom is named Sheri.

From the movie: "Sherri and I are engaged!" "Oh. Who's Sherri?" "She's my mom"
