Verbatim Box Synopsis
If you thought that 'Animal House' was funny just wait until you see the boys from Delta House in this wild and crazy movie.  See the gang turn Yellowstone University into a disaster area.  Perhaps what endeared Tommy to Delta was the feeling that beneath the scum, noise and smell there existed a rare and irresistable spirit of togetherness.

A few words on the film from upcoming Cinema Arcana contributor, Paul Talbot:  "After Shock Waves, Weiderhorn was an editor then producer for CBS network news. He replaced the original director on King Frat. He was given 3 days to prep and read the script on the plane to Florida. The guy that plays the Belushi role in King Frat played the killer in Wiederhorn's Eyes of a Stranger. I snuck into a drive-in in '79 to see King Frat."
