Natalie transfers to college. She wants to be an architect. As luck would have it, she catches her boyfriend cheating on her just before she moves, so now she is free.
But some sinister girls are monitoring her and making plans for her. They set her up with a roommate and are looking for a guy for her. Turns out these girls run one of the prominent sororities on campus.
Sure enough, Natalie with some help of her roommate decides to rush that sorority, as her now dead mother did years ago. Her hazing includes her having to seduce a guy...just the guy the sinister girls had picked for her. Natalie and the guy are actually a good match for each other and they go on two dates. While they are making out in her dorm, the roommate barges in and offers the guy some brownies, he starts hallucinating, a bunch of sorority sisters arrive to film him, he leaves, crashes his car and dies.
His sister coincidentally works on campus in some administration capacity and thinks something is fishy with his death. They find THC and ecstasy in his system, but she known that as an athlete he would never take drugs (ha!). She discovers that he's been seeing Natalie and talks to her. The entire sorority went into panic mode and the girls decided to stick to a story that they had nothing to do with anything. But the guy's sister knows better, and Natalie isn't very good at lying, something she's made clear to Alexa--the sinister leader. The guy's sister herself ends up in trouble and gets herself fired for harassing the sorority.
But Natalie keeps having seconds thoughts. She goes home and talks to her friends about it. When she returns to campus, Alex and her sidekick, plant drugs on her and call the cops. Natalie ends up arrested, but fortunately the sorority hires a lawyer and pays her bail. Now they have Natalie but she also realizes how far they are willing to go. She comes clean to the guy's sister and with her friends plan to take down Alexa. In the process we learn the motivation for Alexa's action.
Dead on Campus doesn't involve a death on campus, nor is it particularly sexy or thrilling. But I did like the main themes of the movie--the lure of power, the abuse of power, the corrupt network of the corrupt powerful who'll go to any lengths to cover up each others misdeeds. The message of the movie is good too--to do the right thing even when it's not the easy or convenient.
Execution is a bit iffy. Casting is rather poor overall, with the exception of Natalie's friend who saves the day at the end. The girls are overdressed and overmade-up most of the time.
