Storyline

Taylor Brooks is a young, overachieving coed at a posh New England college who decides to pledge The Skulls, the secret society of which her father and many of the faculty are members, and for which her older brother died years earlier during an initiation rite. Her resolve to break the all-male Skulls' taboo against female membership by aggressively campaigning to be its first female entrant puts her at odds with most other pledges and alumni members. When she finally succeeds in fulfilling her goal, despite interference from a few Skull members, she finds herself in hot water, with her boyfriend murdered and herself accused of the crime. Taylor must find a way to prove her innocence and find the real killer despite the fact that no one around her can be trusted. Written by Matthew Patay / revised by statmanjeff

Not bad
22 April 2004 | by Xeno_See all my reviews

The lead role of this third film about the Skulls (but that can still work pretty well as a stand alone) is Clare Kramer (Glory in the 5th season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer). It's the first movie I saw her in with a leading role and I found her performance to be pretty good.

The overall acting in the movie was fine.

I found the story to be pretty predictable but still enjoyable. There were no pointless or rushed scenes. They succeed in keeping your interest during pretty much all the movie. And everything (I think) is explained at the end.

So an enjoying movie with a good story
