The Brotherhood Review

Synopsis:

The fraternity "Doma (House of) Tau Omega" has found a key to eternal youth without having to become blood-drinking vampires. Will they be able to recruit Chris, an innocent and perfect newcomer?

They were probably trying to make a genuinely scary film, but

it turns out to have some pretty ridiculous moments. 


Lots of absurd dialogue between the two College Freshman, the " jock "

and the " nerd ".  COLLEGE KIDS DO NOT TALK LIKE THIS!


This college is mostly men, apparently, but the female lead delivers

her lines in a flat, whiny, fake voice.


The villian also has a strange flat delivery of his lines, but at least

he has more charisma.


The best way to watch this film is to look for the absurd moments, like

the fact that this fraternity only has 4 members (due to the low budget!)


The jock gets flaming drunk on one small drink during the party….one

frat boy walks around in a shiny yellow disco shirt…the nerd never

stops darting his eyes and jerking around….it just goes on!


The biggest joke is the way the nerd pulls away an ax from the girl

without even a fight! Something you would see in a high school play.


So no scary frightening moments, and a strange sex scene that’s not

erotic, but still four stars for all the campy moments. It’s a classic!


Almost the entire cast disappeared after this film. No future stars here

except the jock who appears on Shark now.  He shows some potential

here, and has leading man looks.


One strange last note, the vampire with the shiny disco shirt is the

only cast member to " survive " and go on to star in Brotherhood II.

This is never explained in either movie…
