Frat house slasher influenced by "The Evil Dead" featuring Tiffany Shepis and Nectar Rose
11 May 2019 | by WuchakkSee all my reviews

During a hazing on Halloween, seven college students get trapped in a Fraternity house with an unholy book that attracts the spirit of a crazy professor who threatens to possess them. Can any of them make it out alive?

"The Hazing" (2004), retitled "Dead Scared," is a low-budget slasher with an amusing edge. It borrows from the first two "Evil Dead" flicks and is just as good or better. One of the highlights is brunette Tiffany Shepis as Marsha and blonde Nectar Rose as Delia, the former in a shining silver bodysuit and the latter in a playboy bunny costume. It was wise on the director's part to clothe them in this manner as they can be clearly observed even in the dim light of the creepy frat house. Horror directors take note.

The movie runs 1 hour, 27 minutes and was shot in Los Angeles.

GRADE: B-
