Storyline

Set on the quiet campus of Yellowstream University, this comedy follows the rivalries that build between two of the college's fraternities. When they're not mooning everyone they pass and throwing garbage on the lawns of rival frats, the members of the Pi Kappa Delta fraternity are mainly interested in drinking and... well, drinking. When a campus- wide farting contest is announced, Grossout, the leader of the Deltas, is all too eager to stand up, bend over and defend the honor of his fraternity. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

Originally the film was called Campus King in certain countries, and came with alternative intro music, a keyboard based instrumental, rather than Penny Alemian's better know title song. (Which is available on youtube by the way). See more »

Alternate Versions

A key sequence from the ambulance scene that was shown in the original drive-in release but was cut from the US video version. When the ambulance attendant stares into the back of the ambulance there is an abrupt cut and then he stares forward again. What was cut out was Babette got romantically entangled with Fred's erection (medically known as "penis captivus") and because of the bumpy ambulance ride they appeared be having sex to the ambulance attendant. That was the whole basis of the joke. However this scene is shown in the UK video version. See more »

Loved it
16 March 2001 | by OmegaXLSee all my reviews

I remember watching King Frat when I was growing up. My brother used to rent it all the time. It was so tasteless and just so totally gross that I fell in love with the movie. It's not easy to get a copy of it but I finally came across a copy on EBay and gladly paid $50 for it. Sure it's an Animal House clone but in my opinion, it puts Animal House to shame. John DiSanti plays the perfect slob and all of his fellow "Pi Kap" brothers are just as revolting. It's not something you'd want to watch with the children but for a good laugh, you have to go far to top King Frat.
