      Audience Member Taylor Brooks (Clare Kramer, Glory from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is a legacy of the Skulls, as her father Martin (Karl Pruner) and dead brother were both members. Now, she wants to challenge the group and be the first female member, which is a great hook for the story as its literally an old boy's club. This whole thing has a kinda, sorta giallo structure in that we see the cops trying to solve the case as we arrive in the middle of the story and see flashbacks. Her boyfriend Ethan (Shaun Sipos) also tried to join and was just plain embarrassed that a woman would try to join, so she decides that she totally has to join and I'm all for it. This is the only full length film that J. Miles Dale has directed, but he's produced several of Guillermo del Toro's projects. Written by Joe Johnson, who also scribed Don't Hang Up, this has one major advantage and it's Barry Bostwick as the evil elder Skull that puts the whole plot in motion just to advance the military-industrial complex, so they've moved on from killing JFK to intimidating high school girls and their absentee fathers. That said, I liked this way more than I should have. But traditionally I am easy on later sequels of movies I didn't like so much in the first place, kind of like the kid brothers of bullies that beat me up. We have something in common, as we've both had to deal with the older sibling in similar, if different ways, so there's some kinship. Or when I should beat them up, I realize that the circle of violence -- or dunking on bad movies -- can stop with me and I can try to find something to like.

But, there were some unintentionally hilarious moments here that made it a bit easier to watch. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member They tapped a female to be a skull...... Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Wasn't a bad flick for number 3! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm sure the idea sounded like a possible cult classic hit, but in relaity It's the same as everything else you have seen, except with a woman. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Just ok they should have just made the first one and then stopped there Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
