From the creators of CAMP SLAUGHTER comes FRAT HOUSE MASSACRE, a true homage to the best of the late 70’s grindhouse and early 80’s slasher films! Sean (Chris Prangley) and his little brother Bobby (Rane Jameson) thought joining the Delta Iota Epsilon fraternity would be the best time of their lives with parties, freedom, girls and sex. The fraternity president Mark (Jon Fleming of TVs WILL & GRACE and DANTE’S COVE), however, is a little strange. His twisted hazing rituals include extreme physical and mental torture that lead the boys down a horrific path of destruction and death. But death may be just the beginning, as this gritty twisted film unfolds. Inspired by actual events and set in the year 1979, FRAT HOUSE MASSACRE is a disturbing journey through the twisted world of fraternity boys, pledges and the not-so-innocent sorority sisters swept up in their madness. Loaded with violence, gore, nudity and a fantastic music score by Claudio Simonetti, this DVD is the director’s cut containing over twenty minutes of additional footage.

While the film had plenty of killings to justify the "Massacre" in the film's title, there was no real reasoning behind any of them and the gore effects were pretty substandard. Anyone can film a close-up of someone spitting out some red corn syrup guys. Also, I'm pretty sure there was more to fraternal college life in the '70s than an obscene amount of hazing, cocaine and abuse. The female characters in the film (with the exception of the maternal "Olivia" character) were nothing more than victims for abuse and on one occasion, sexual assault.
There was a somewhat interesting twist mid-way through, as well as a twist ending, but this felt tacked on and reeks of a cheap way out of finishing a plot. Given the title and setting, this could have been a great twist on a classic, what with a fraternity being central to the story. With classic slashers like "The House on Sorority Row, The Slumber Party Massacre" and "The Initiation," this film would have been perfect for turning the tables and focusing on college-age male victims. The filmmakers really missed their chance to create something fresh out of so much history. Instead, they gave us two hours of inexplicable violence and abuse for abuse's sake. Oh, and many, many close-up shots of shirtless frat guys in their underwear.
Skip this one and grab something vintage. It's for the best.
