About the Movie
Nick Forest, a college freshman, wants nothing more than to join a fraternity. However, in the wake of a brutal hazing death on campus, his estranged older brother, Pete, is rallying against the Greek system. Nick ignores Pete's protests and rushes Psi Theta Epsilon, notorious for its rumored hazing practices. As Nick begins the pledging process, he relishes the bonding and the partying, especially with Sophie, an irresistible sorority tease. When Nick's close friend, Mimi, struggles with her own sorority experience, and his fraternity's rumored hazing turns dangerously real, Nick begins to question everything. But is he in too deep? A modern retelling of the ancient Greek myth of Dionysus -- the god of wine, revelry, and ecstasy -- HAZE is a raw, shocking glimpse into a world of institutionalized savagery and into the heart of a young man driven by a desperate need for acceptance and brotherhood.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A somewhat pulpy drama, but it's effective nonetheless.
Fresh: As a morality tale, "Haze" is old news. But as an in-the-moment explanation of how hazing happens, it's so fresh, it's raw.
I've had the opportunity to see HAZE on the big screen twice. It's gritty, captivating, funny, sexy, misogynistic and appalling all at the same time.
This is a great full-length ride through the rituals of "Greek" college life. A sophisticated screen-play tells the story of two brothers at odds with each other over pledging to a fraternity known for egregious hazing practices and the films voyeuristic-like point of view makes you feel like you're watching as a fly on the wall while all the debauchery goes down.
People will be talking about this one!
This is such an important film-- it really gets to the core of college and Greek culture. It's a thrill to watch and I can't recommend it enough, despite the discomfort of viewing the horrors of hazing. Watch this film and then talk to a friend about it.
Truth about Greek life
I saw this movie by chance and was totally blown away. I was in a Greek house in college and since graduating have distanced myself from that community and those memories... it seems like fun at the time, but in truth, there's a lot of darkness there. HAZE told the story of my own experience in a way that I couldn't. Thanks to all who made this film happen.
