The Hazing is a horror-comedy movie from 2004 that follows a group of college students who plan to join a fraternity. The movie is directed by Rolfe Kanefsky and stars Brad Dourif, Brooke Burke, and Nectar Rose. The story starts with four college friends, Ashley (Tiffany Shepis), Josh (Parry Shen), Ethan (Philip Andrew), and Angela (Nectar Rose) who decide to join a fraternity in order to impress their peers. The fraternity they choose is rumored to have a dark past, with a pledge dying during the hazing ritual a few years ago. Despite this, the group of friends thinks that joining the fraternity will be worth it, as it will bring them social status and popularity. As expected, the hazing rituals are bizarre and sometimes violent. The pledges are forced to eat worms, drink urine, and are subjected to various types of physical and mental abuse. However, things take a turn for the worse when one of the pledges, Nick (Brad Dourif), starts to lose his mind. Nick is an ex-member of the fraternity who was kicked out years ago for causing trouble, and he has a score to settle with the current members. Nick starts to haunt the fraternity, appearing unexpectedly in the middle of the night, and tormenting the pledges. The fraternity members try to ignore Nick's presence and go on with their hazing, believing that it's just a prank by one of their brothers. However, it becomes apparent that Nick is not playing around, as he starts to target the pledges one by one. Meanwhile, Ashley, Josh, Ethan, and Angela start to realize that the fraternity is not what it seems. They discover that the fraternity has a reputation for hazing pledges to death, and that Nick's return is linked to this dark past. The friends try to leave the fraternity, but find themselves trapped inside the house, with no way out. As the night goes on, the pledges face various challenges, from being locked in a room full of snakes to being forced to drink a lethal potion. Nick's presence becomes more and more intense, and it's unclear if anyone will make it out alive. The Hazing is a mixture of horror and comedy, with some scenes that will make you jump and others that will make you laugh. The movie is not for the faint of heart, as it includes some graphic scenes of violence and gore. However, it also has some witty one-liners and clever twists that will keep you entertained. The cast does a good job, with Brad Dourif stealing the show as the deranged ex-member. Dourif is known for his roles in horror movies, and he delivers a creepy and convincing performance in The Hazing. Brooke Burke also has a small role as a sorority sister who flirts with the pledges, adding some eye candy to the mix. Overall, The Hazing is a decent horror movie that is worth watching if you're a fan of the genre. It's not groundbreaking, but it delivers on its promise of scares and laughs. If you're looking for a movie to watch with friends on a Friday night, The Hazing might be a good choice.
