“Acid Sid is Freddy Krueger as interpreted by Randy ‘Macho Man’ Savage.”
— Joseph A. Ziemba, BLEEDING SKULL!

It's hazing season at Phi Up! But this is going to be one literal hell week as the frat boys unwittingly unleash the spirit of Acid Sid — an unfortunate pledge who was accidentally dissolved in acid during a hazing prank gone wrong twenty years earlier. A truly one-of-a-kind blending of post-ANIMAL HOUSE sex comedy and gore-filled supernatural slasher, PLEDGE NIGHT unloads a nearly non-stop barrage of weirdness on the viewer. From the jaw dropping, all-based-on-actual-practices hazing rituals (as meticulously researched by writer/producer Joyce Synder), to the slimy and often “explosive” gore from effects wizard Dean Kartalas, along with a soundtrack performed by Anthrax (whose singer, Joey Belladonna, makes a memorable onscreen appearance), PLEDGE NIGHT serves up a non-stop ride of horror and weirdness guaranteed to keep you glued to the screen with your mouth agape.
