A pledge must battle homophobia and a killer clown during his fraternity's Hell Night. Several people at Felix University want the brothers and pledges of ZAP Fraternity dead, but now someone with an Ax to grind is killing them off one by one at the old haunted river park island. While on the island, a few of the college students learn what happens to people to blindly follow leaders without asking questions. Jack Jones must stop the clown, save the fraternity and find the courage to come out of the closet by sunrise Written by

A bunch of freshman pledges including cute gay Jack Jones (Tyler Farrell) have to spend the night on a deserted island to get into a fraternity. It was the place when, back in 1984, four people were poisoned to death. The fraternity brothers naturally sneak on the island to play pranks on the pledges. There's also a killer dressed in a clown outfit stalking and killing them all. Who is it--and why? You really won't care.
**SPOILERS THROUGHOUT** This is not a bad idea. Usually you get a bunch of untalented but attractive actresses running around screaming and being chased by a killer. This time we have a bunch of untalented actors being chased around by a killer. Not a bad idea but this SUCKS! For one thing all the actors are pretty obviously way too old to be in college --Farrell is almost 30! Also only a few are attractive but only the unattractive ones take their clothes off! Farrell is the only good-looking guy that has a nude scene (back view only). Most of the other guys run around in briefs. The plot is asinine--full of stupid lines (Sample: "First of all there's a psycho clown killing everybody and second--I'm gay.") There's also just incredibly horrible acting. I can't stress enough how BAD some of this acting is. It's almost embarrassing to watch at times. Also the killings are horribly done. Most of them happen off-camera or from a distance with the fakest stage blood I've ever seen. To make things worse the killer clown does a pathetic little dance after killing people! Then the ending has multiple twists which come out of NOwhere and make little sense. Also the back story about the four ghosts is completely pointless and throws in some unbelievably lame humor. Repititous music score too.
The few good things about the movie are--some cute guys shirtless; there's some fairly hot guy-on-guy kissing; good acting by Farrell and hotie Kaleo Quenzer (as Tommy) and a gay positive message. Also all the str8 characters are killed--only the gay guys and one girl are left alive at the end. I'm all for gay positive horror movies--but do they have to be THIS bad??? Aside from the nude scene of Farrell and gay kissing this movie has nothing to offer. Avoid.
