Storyline

When Lisa starts her freshman year of college, everything seems perfect. She has a new job on the university paper, a handsome new boyfriend, Steven, and together with her new roommate, Shelby, she's pledging a sorority. Her world changes drastically during the sorority's "hell week" as new pledges are asked to perform degrading tasks. Lisa begins to wonder about becoming a sorority sister, but decides to stick it out because she's a "legacy"-that is, her mother is a founding member. During hell week, Shelby mysteriously falls from the campus clock tower late one night and dies. After getting over the initial shock, Lisa becomes convinced that it wasn't a suicide as everyone wants to believe. She begins her own investigation with Steven's help. But no one on campus will listen to them: Lisa's sorority sisters refuse to talk about that night, and the campus officials have closed the case... Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Awesome Movie
13 August 2001 | by (Texas, US) – See all my reviews

I'll admit I was a bit skeptical at first, after seeing that Mark Paul Gosslar was in it, and all I've seen him in was "Saved By The Bell" but his performance, along with the rest of the cast put all that aside. I found myself caught up in the movie which I would recommend it to anyone who wants to watch a good thriller film.
