Fraternity Row is a powerful film about emotional and physical violence at an Eastern college frat house in 1954, produced and scripted by USC grad student Charles Gary Allison.

Debuting director Thomas J. Tobin handles the fresh young cast with sensitivity and avoids the thrill-mongering that mars too many youth-market pix.

This is no happy-go-lucky piece of 1950s nostalgia, but a sobering dissection of the brutality and narrow-mindedness too often spawned by the Greek system in that era, before the hippie revolution hit the campuses and depleted frat ranks.

Peter Fox is the sensitive but compromised frat pledge master who opposes Scott Newman’s sadistic attitudes towards the pledges, and Gregory Harrison is the innocent one who suffers most in the hazing process.
