The inside of the Animal House scenes were shot in the House next door at 763 E. 11 th Street. At the time it was the Sigma Nu Fraternity House. It is now owned by Northwest Christian College.

Variety
Steady readers of the National Lampoon may find National Lampoon's Animal House a somewhat soft-pedalled, punches-pulled parody of college campus life circa 1962. However, there's enough bite and bawdiness to provide lots of smiles and several broad guffaws. Full Review
Dave Kehr
Chicago Reader
While the low comedy is undeniably effective, the film leaves behind a bad taste of snobbery and petty meanness. Full Review
Janet Maslin
The New York Times
National Lampoon's Animal House is by no means one long howl, but it's often very funny, with gags that are effective in a dependable, all-purpose way. Full Review
Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times
The movie is vulgar, raunchy, ribald, and occasionally scatological. It is also the funniest comedy since Mel Brooks made "The Producers." Full Review
