About the Movie

Reeling from a terrifying assault over the summer, 19-year-old Brad Land (Ben Schnetzer) starts college determined to get his life back to normal. His brother, Brett (Nick Jonas), is already established on campus and with a fraternity that allures Brad with its promise of protection, popularity, and life-long friendships. Brad is desperate to belong but as he sets out to join the fraternity his brother exhibits reservations, a sentiment that threatens to divide them. As the pledging ritual moves into hell week, a rite that promises to usher these unproven boys into manhood, the stakes violently increase with a series of torturous and humiliating events. What occurs in the name of ‘brotherhood’ tests both boys and their relationship in brutal ways.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The performances are conscientious and earnest; Mr. Jonas has not much to do but come off as callow, with a streak of kindness, and he does so. – Glenn Kenny, New York Times, Sep 22, 2016

Fresh: Though the movie aims for the gravity and psychological horror of Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket, the film is essentially the dark flip side of a Seth Rogen comedy ... – Joe McGovern, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 23, 2016

Fresh: A fact-based fratboy movie it might be helpful to think of as Animal House minus the laughs. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Sep 22, 2016

Rotten: Points are made and lessons imparted with all the subtlety and finesse of a Greek paddle to the head. – Melissa Anderson, Village Voice, Sep 22, 2016

Colossal Waste

This movie was sold by a 2 minute appearance by Franco and the most soft and uninteresting frat movie I have ever seen. Never would I recommend this to anyone. The plot is horrible and for an hour and a half long movie it sure does seem like it will never end.

Not as bad as people say

I'm reading a lot of bad reviews here but I really don't think it deserved a 1 or a 2 star. it DEF was not that bad. The acting wasn't bad at all. I couldn't cry on demand like that. I thought it was actually pretty intense and literally made me want to cry at some points. And made me not want to let my son ever join a frat lol


Absolute garbage.
