Frat House

Posted by

The documentary that was made for HBO and never aired. Directed by Todd Phillips and Andrew Gurland when they were NYU film students, Frat House explores the fraternity lifestyle of the late 1990s and now in hind-sight the origin of the "Bro". Of course, you'll recognize Todd Phillips as the director of Old School, Road Trip and The Hangover movies and you'll see the obvious inspiration for Old School here. Rumors of staged hazing scenes may tarnish the film's authenticity but it is still an interesting watch and who knows how long it will be available on youtube.
