H.O.T.S. is a 1979 comedy film that premiered in the United States. The movie was directed by Gerald Seth Sindell and produced by Charles Band, who is well known for his expertise in the horror genre. The film revolves around a group of college girls who come together to fight against the oppression of a rival sorority. The movie is set in Fairenville College, where six girls intend to pledge Delta Omega Gamma sorority. One of the girls, Honey Shayne (played by Susan Kiger), is having a hard time getting through the selection process. She is determined to make the cut, but her efforts are hampered by the Dean of Women, who is hostile towards the Delta Omega Gamma sorority.
On the other hand, there is the rival sorority, Alpha Beta, that is known for their pranks and jibes against Delta Omega Gamma. Alpha Beta is also planning to be the best sorority on campus, and they aim to achieve this by winning the annual homecoming float contest.
The Delta Omega Gamma girls are fed up with the Alpha Beta sorority and the aggressive behavior they face from them. They decide to take matters into their own hands and fight back against their rivals. The girls dress in sultry outfits and put on a show to draw attention to themselves, thereby weakening Alpha Beta's position on campus.
The show garners massive attention, and the girls become campus celebrities overnight. Delta Omega Gamma's tactics begin to work, and they start winning popularity points, much to Alpha Beta's dismay. The situation heats up when the Alpha Beta sorority becomes increasingly hostile towards their rivals. Alpha Beta fights back by attempting to remove Delta Omega Gamma from the contest, but the latter retaliates with even more outrageous stunts.
Despite being a movie that very blatantly objectifies women, the Delta Omega Gamma girls emerge as the heroes of H.O.T.S. The girls show how they can push back against adversity and win, despite the odds. The film's audience is drawn into the story and the antics of the girls, and the suspense keeps them engaged throughout.

All in all, H.O.T.S. is a classic example of 1970s college comedy; fast-paced, packed with dramatic moments, and tons of humor to keep the audience entertained. The movie is also an excellent showcase of how group dynamics can help overcome adversity and how perseverance pays off.
