The Skulls (2000)
USA / English
"A secret society so powerful, it can give you everything you desire... at a price. "Luke McNamara, a college senior from a working class background joins a secret elitist college fraternity organization called 'The Skulls'...
If I told you, Id have to ....
If I told you about the secret society of movie goers whom watched this
movie, I'd have to, um.. you know. Of course that is just an act, but the
real question is, can anybody in this movie act?
"The Skulls" is like stale candy. It is well packaged, it looks great, the
trailer and advertisements make you want to see it, but when you finally
sneak the candy, you realize that it is of bad quality.
"The Skulls" is low quality at its best. The acting is poor, the writing is
worse, the cliches are high, the goofiness is there. However, none of this
is supposed to be present.
What was an interesting idea is given run-of-the mill treatment is writing
and thus leading to dead-pan style acting. I guess a teen audience will
love it, as "The Skulls" did make money.
In all though, it is in the bottom half of early 2000 movies and will remain
a secret to most people in the years to come (except of course to the select
and elete few whom saw the movie.
