Movie Info

Nick Forest, a college freshman, wants nothing more than to join a fraternity. However, in the wake of a brutal hazing death on campus, his estranged older brother, Pete, is rallying against the Greek system. Nick ignores Pete's protests and rushes Psi Theta Epsilon, notorious for its rumored hazing practices. As Nick begins the pledging process, he relishes the bonding and the partying, especially with Sophie, an irresistible sorority tease. When Nick's close friend, Mimi, struggles with her own sorority experience, and his fraternity's rumored hazing turns dangerously real, Nick begins to question everything. But is he in too deep? A modern retelling of the ancient Greek myth of Dionysus -- the god of wine, revelry, and ecstasy -- HAZE is a raw, shocking glimpse into a world of institutionalized savagery and into the heart of a young man driven by a desperate need for acceptance and brotherhood.

Critic Reviews for Haze

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

As a morality tale, "Haze" is old news. But as an in-the-moment explanation of how hazing happens, it's so fresh, it's raw.

A somewhat pulpy drama, but it's effective nonetheless.

First-time feature director-writer David Burkman has cobbled together a film that finds its focus through brotherhood on two very distinct planes.

All this is autobiographical, by the way. The highly praiseworthy Burkman avows in the film's press notes, 'Haze is based on my own experience pledging a fraternity in college.'

Haze is the strongest piece of work on this subject for a long time.

Oct 12, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

With nothing particularly new or revelatory to offer, Haze is a terrible, pointless movie.
