The red band trailer for the sadistic frat-hazing film Goat dropped, and it’s definitely not safe for work. If you haven’t heard of Goat, here’s what we know so far: In the movie Goat, 19-year-old Brad Land (Ben Schnetzer) starts his freshman year of college following a traumatizing assault over summer. His brother, Brett (Jonas) already started school and joined a fraternity.
Desperate to belong, Brad wants to participate in a fraternity, and will do whatever it takes to rush. Everything seems fine until hell week, and the hazing becomes gradually more violent, torturous and humiliating.
In an interview with Billboard, Jonas called the film “sadistic and twisted. He also commented on the movie’s most intense scene saying, “the scene where we pull Brad out of his dorm and make him eat shit in the bathroom. That was really hard.”
When asked whether he would join a frat, Jonas replied “Probably not after having made this film. (Laughs.) Not if it meant I would subject myself to hazing and humiliation.”
Watch the R-rated trailer below and catch Goat in theatres and on VOD September 23.
