Haze (2017)

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.

    I worked as an extra for this film a few years ago. So when I heard it was finally being released and showing at a theater near me, I jumped at the chance. I honestly didn't know what to expect when the lights dimmed and the show started. But I can say now that this film is simply incredible. Based on Greek mythology, the film blends elements of modern life and ancient myth into a captivating story everyone needs to see. The acting, the writing, the filmmaking, the editing, and even the score all work together flawlessly to create something truly amazing. Everyone should see this film. And not just those who pledged for fraternities and sororities in college.
