Excitement., 25 October 2008
Author: lafazman from United States

Is all I can really say about this title. Fantastic idea, IMPECCABLE casting and performances all make this a definite must-have for any movie collection. The Brotherhood VI: Initiation brings together all the stigmas you love from the horror genre and the fear and controversy surrounding fraternity initiation rituals into one harmonious melting pot that in no way undermines the art that is film making. With acting that makes you FEEL the victims' duress and a storyline with sheer intensity that is sure to keep you on edge even after the film has ended, The Brotherhood VI: Initiation is a thriller with the dynamics to shove it out of the "slasher" genre and into the "horror" section. If you are looking for a thoughtless, blood-filled film which gives you 90 minutes of overly macabre scenes while robbing you completely of a plot, this movie is not for you. But don't worry slasher seekers, Saw V was just released this weekend! The Brotherhood VI: Initiation is a personal favorite and is sure to leave the same impression on anybody who is smart enough to give it a shot. Brilliant work guys.
