Critic Consensus: Pledge leaves a certain amount of potential untapped in its extreme take on collegiate hazing, but the end result is still well-executed enough to be worth a watch.

Movie Info

Three friends get the chance to live the college dream when they're invited to join an elite fraternity-but first they'll have to survive the hazing from hell. Freshman social misfits Ethan (Phillip Andre Botello), David (Zack Weiner), and Justin (Zachery Byrd) are desperate to improve their terminally uncool reputations by pledging one of their university's prestigious Greek houses. When every frat on campus turns them down, they are unexpectedly recruited by a shadowy social club offering them access to an exclusive world of raging parties, eligible coeds, and VIP social status. The catch? A sadistic initiation ritual that goes from depraved to deadly over the course of 48 booze- and blood-soaked hours. Spiked with twisted humor and gruesome shocks, Pledge asks: how far would you go to be popular?

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (4)

A lean and mean shocker that tells its tale of collegiate hazing run amuck with brute efficiency.

January 17, 2019 | Full Review…

The characters and premise of "Pledge" are over-the-top, but the movie understands that - whether comedy or horror - all these stories are really about a desperate yearning for belonging.

January 16, 2019 | Full Review…

If you like your torture movies tight, twisty and decently executed, then "Pledge" is for you.

January 10, 2019 | Full Review…

At a time when all kinds of boys' clubs are being dissected in every available form of media, the hand-me-down visions in Pledge aren't nearly as edgy as they intend to be.

January 10, 2019 | Full Review…

Pledge is no masterpiece. It is, however, a tightly packaged, insightful and mean little flick.

January 18, 2019 | Rating: 3 | Full Review…

As a video-nasty take on hazing gone to stunning extremes, this indie gem ... does pretty well for itself.
