A dark tradition becomes a game of torment in Daniel Robbins‘ thriller Pledge, set to World Premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival on Tuesday, July 24th (get tickets).
Frat life has never been so scary. And we don’t mean the recent wave of headlines and controversies. Inspired by the rise of the ‘social’ thriller, Pledge promises to take a centuries-old American tradition to new extremes and explore the power dynamics that have led to so many deaths on American campuses.
Produced by New York-based Stag Pictures in association with BoulderLight Pictures (Dismissed, Bad Match), the film stars Zack Weiner (Uncaged), Phillip Botello (“Criminal Minds”) and Zachery Byrd (“Blindspot”) as nerdy freshmen pitted against menacing frat bros Cameron Cowperthwaite (“American Horror Story: Cult”), Aaron Dalla Villa (“Duels”), and Jesse Pimentel (“Resident Evil 7: Biohazard”).
FEW GET IN. NONE GET OUT: Pledge would make any freshman think twice about joining Greek life.
Here’s the film’s official teaser trailer, to go along with the stills and festival poster art.
