Storyline

A series of brutal, cult-like murders are taking place at a New England college. Josh Greene, a shy freshman, is the lone survivor of a series of murders that are reminiscent of a similar string of killings some twenty years prior. As he seeks to uncover the secret behind the attacks, he is joined by Detective Forrester, who was instrumental in halting the bloodshed before, and his daughter Meg, who had barely escaped being a victim previously.

Murder U
31 October 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I love this movie! This is a fun throwback to the 80's style slasher films. Great acting, fun visuals and a chilling score.

It was made by independent film makers who prove that you can make a great movie without the production costs of a major Hollywood blockbuster.

It's a team of dedicated, talented artists making a great film for everyone to enjoy.

I highly recommend Murder University. Not only does it deliver all the standard 80's horror movie thrills, it takes a dark, new twist that you won't believe.

Check it out.
