Storyline

Taylor Brooks is a young, overachieving coed at a posh New England college whom decides to pledge the secret society The Skulls whom her father and many of the faculty are members and whom her older brother died years earlier during an initiation practice. But Taylor's willingness to break the all-male Skulls taboo of pledging as the first woman to do so put her at odds with the other pledges and alumni members. When she finally succeeds in fulfilling her membership despite inference from the Skull members, she soon finds herself in hot water when her boyfriend is found murdered, and she's accused of the crime. Taylor must find a way to prove her innocence and find the real killer despite the fact that no one around her can be trusted. Written by Matthew Patay

Not bad...
2 September 2005 | by (Puerto Rico) – See all my reviews

If i were you, i would skip Skulls 2 and go directly to this nice little gem. Clare Kramer actually did a decent job at this film, as well as the other cast. Normally i don't expect much from direct to video sequels of popular teen movies but this one actually surpassed the original in my opinion. Providing more interesting twists and turns than the original ever did. Not to mention the carbon copy sequel which really sucked. This one really held my interest and kept me guessing at an outcome.

Kramer stars as Taylor a bright and head strong young woman who is still haunted by her brothers suicide and her fathers growing distance. She decides that she will take up the mantel her brother failed to do with becoming a skull. But as the old saying goes, be careful what you wish for. As Taylor suddenly begins to spiral out of control down a path of betrayal, jealousy and murder.

Unlike Skulls 2, this third actually spends time detailing the grueling process of becoming a skull, Skulls 2 skipped all that and just repeated the same scenes from the original, the only thing skulls 2 had differently was a breasts. And sadly Skulls 3 didn't but I'm not complaining the story was so good, i quickly forgot my horn dog ways. Skulls 3 has everything you would want in a good Friday night movie...except breasts but i think we can overlook that cant we?

Not a bad way to waste a couple of bucks on a weeknight.
