The BROTHERHOOD series stayed very strong through part 4 but when BROTHERHOOD 5: ALUMNI was released . . . clearly something went wrong. I'm glad to say that part 6 (and no Dave, we DON'T need a part 7 - this has run its course) is a big improvment over part 5 but still it dosen't really have the secret society type element that is entirely necessary for a BROTHERHOOD film. This one is actually a decent FRIDAY THE 13th style slasher flick that owes more to FINAL STAB than it does the BROTHERHOOD. It's about a killer lumberjack and it is certainly better than the last killer lumberjack film I saw, THE LEGEND OF BLOODY JACK (which was produced by the very hit or miss Asylum).Read more ›
Pledgemaster Morris (Tyson Breech) and sophomore frat member Shane (Bryan McMullin) watch over the six pledges nearing initiation - Andy (Austen Jesse), Kevin (Aaron Jaeger), Garrett (Dominick Monteleone), Boyd (Burke Carter), Eddie (Jeremy Ray Simpson) and Doug (James Preston). The commentary track said three of the actors playing pledges were Abercrombie & Fitch models. Quite a pledge class!
The pledges strip for a paddling and to find tokens outside that will allow the finders to sleep indoors. The two frat members discuss a pledge who disappeared at the hacienda three years ago. Flash to a masked guy with an ax, and watch the bodies pile up. There is a twist or two toward the end.
As other reviewers have counted, all of the male characters but two have material skin scenes. One of the two does have a shirtless photo credit early on, and the other actor may be found on the internet. There are neither sex nor overtly romantic scenes, although Morris gives it a nominal try.
As frequently happens in slasher films, many of the pledge characters have little dialogue and are killed off relatively early. Four characters do most of the talking. Character development is not a big component of this film.
The story is reasonably good most of the way, as is the photography. There are some traditional DeCoteau indulgences, as when the shirtless pledges have to stand in a line and get sprayed from a hose. The explanation of the next-to-final twist beggars belief. I thought Bryan McMullin (Shane) and Dominick Montelone (Garrett) were the best actors.Read more ›
