Storyline

Set on the quiet campus of Yellowstream University, this comedy follows the rivalries that build between two of the college's fraternities. When they're not mooning everyone they pass and throwing garbage on the lawns of rival frats, the members of the Pi Kappa Delta fraternity are mainly interested in drinking and... well, drinking. When a campus- wide farting contest is announced, Grossout, the leader of the Deltas, is all too eager to stand up, bend over and defend the honor of his fraternity. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

Originally the film was called Campus King in certain countries, and came with alternative intro music, a keyboard based instrumental, rather than Penny Alemian's better know title song. (Which is available on youtube by the way). See more »

King Frat is most definitely a shameless ripoff of Animal House
9 August 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Well, I'm going to have to be more careful when I buy these used VHS's in the future because the one I bought of this movie is really the pits! And no, I'm not basing that on the wretched print I just viewed but the fact that there wasn't much creativity in making this Animal House ripoff. I mean, sure, there were some scatological gags in that John Belushi movie but this one is full of them and none of them are remotely very funny! Though the one with the farts used to fuel some fires was a little amusing, ditto that woman getting stuck on a "gorilla's" erection, they weren't amusing enough to remotely save this movie though there was also a funeral scene that, come to think of it, was probably the most absurd thing in this picture though it really made no sense. Okay, I've written more than 10 lines so in summary, if you're curious about this badly-made, amateurish comedy, King Frat should satisfy it soon enough...
