Storyline

Sammy Raes, a nice, naive law-freshman from a simple family, dies in a form of hazing known as the 'flying carpet'. The father of the arrogant fraternity president Guy Bogaerts who ordered this reckless procedure abuses his connections to prevent a judicial homicide conviction, while the college authorities prefer to avoid a scandal in the press. However Sammy's freshmen friends Tom Smits and Dennis won't leave it at that. Written by KGF Vissers

Ad fundum (bottoms up)
21 September 2002 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This film is really not too bad at all, for it is very realistic and the acting and the story are quite good as well. The only thing this film suffers from is the last 'love' scene (f..k me hard we got nothing to celebrate). That scene really makes no sense at all and I thought was only thrown in, because film about fraternities ought to have some sex in it. The rest of the film, I have not much comment about, although I can imagine some people might think the 'flying carpet' game is too over the top. I can imagine you sitting there and thinking: 'No. They would NOT be that stupid.' Well I've heard stories and it seems they are. Stories like tying someone between two mattresses and throwing them out of the window. How it ended? SPLAT! Dead. This is no joke, it is serious, too serious. So next time my friends, when you think of going to a fraternity or when you are in it and giving the freshmen a hard time. Think about what you do. Think carefully.
