What an interesting and engaging bunch of Craniums!, 17 December 2005
Author: sol from Brooklyn NY USA

**SPOILERS** Being tapped by "The Skulls" to be inducted into their secret bone-head society is something that every young collage student in this unnamed Ivy League school has been dreaming of and young Ryan Sommers, Robin Dunne, is one of the lucky few who's been chosen. Instead of taking his role seriously as an up and coming Skull Ryan pulls off a joke on the "Skulls" during one of their secret ceremonies that. This bone-head prank lands him and his "Skull Soulmate" Jeff Colby, Christopher Ralph, on the Skull Sh*t-list and has Ryan and Jeff doing toothbrush duty at the "Tombs", the Skulls headquarters, attic.

Hearing some noise Ryan notices, outside the attic window Skull member Matt "Hutch" Hutchinson, Aaron Ashmore, fooling around with the captain of the collages Womans Lacrosse Team Dianna Rollins, Margot Gagnon, and after getting good and drunk she loses her balance and fall off the roof. It's then when all hell breaks loose with top and senior members of the Skulls moving heaven and earth to keep Dianna's death from going public and implicating their secret society; which no one is supposed to know even exists.

There's a lot of huffing and puffing and nothing else as Ryan is put through the ringer in an effort to first quite and then later terminate him to keep this incident from reaching the newspapers and exposing the mysterious Skulls in the most unflattering way.

It's hinted in the movie, with references to the first Skulls film, that killing is nothing new and surprising with the Skulls. So why are they so panic-stricken now when with their total control of the media police doctors lawyers as well as local and state politicians to cover-up of Dianna's death!

We have instead of a powerful society totally controlling Ryan and later his turn-coat brother Greg, James Gallarders, having to go all-out to shut them up before they spill the beans on them and possibly exposing their secret society. Even the evidence of Dianna's death that was covered up by the local coroner Dr. Sprague (Simon Reynolds), who faked it up to be a traffic accident, is so shabbily hidden that a schoolboy could have found and stolen it. Dr. Sprangue wasn't that effective either in hiding his report on Dianna's death by leaving his office opened as he was checking out the latest, and most well-developed, female students for the towns collage next semesters Anatomy class.

Poor Ryan loses his up-tight and scheming girlfriend Ali, Ashley Cafagana-Tesoro, who only loved him because he was a Skull and someone who can open doors for her in the world of power politics. As soon as he wasn't Ali threw Ryan out of her dorm and her life and hooked up with Hutch who killed Dianna. Ali later even threatened to press charges against a confused Ryan for giving her a shinier on her left eye! Something she got from tickling Ryan not him purposely belting her.

In the end all the dirty laundry about the Skulls comes out in the wash due to Ryan and his new girlfriend and Ali's dorm-mate Kelly, Lindy Booth. With the not now so secret secret organization facing criminal charges in Dianna's, as well as who knows how many others, death they get their big guns out as they gather together in the Skulls secret "War Room". There they decide to put an end to all this shenanigans once in for all by kicking out the person who they feel is the reason for all this bad publicity they've been getting lately.

As usual the skulls screw up again, in trying to protect themselves and the future of the secret Skull society by dumping on the very person who would have saved them all this embarrassment. The person who tried t keep the all-too-normal and clear thinking, for the Skulls, Ryan from being taped into their lame-brain society in the first place.
