The Skull-and-Bones Society (on which this movie was based) actually gives out watches to each class of skulls, though not necessarily with the whole branding ceremony. After the movie was filmed, Joshua Jackson acquired one of the actual watches and gave it to director Rob Cohen. See more »
In the playback of the murder tape, the line: "You stole my key, you stole my book...now I want your camera, I want the tape, and I want my stuff back now" is said differently on the video than it is said the first time that line took place. See more »
This is one of those pretty entertaining-yet-not memorable stories. It's about a "secret society" in an Ivy League school and a subsequent cover-up of a murder. There is a neat little twist about a half hour before the end of the film.
The college kids in here are no-name actors but all credible not offensive or annoying. The film is nicely photographed. Apparently, the film was successful enough to spawn a sequel, so that infers this has enough going for it to check it out if you haven't watched it.
It's okay, but don't expect anything super. However, I have a good friend who thinks this movie is super, and he's usually very critical.
