Late-night cable, here it comes!

Brittany is so obviously wicked, from the first glimpse we get of her, that there's nowhere for Ward to take her, except over the top.

The press release makes a "special request" to not reveal the ending. They didn't need to worry. Anyone over PG-13 age is going to know exactly where this movie is going long before it gets there.

Late-night Cinemax fare inexplicably granted a theatrical release.

The In Crowd isn't a movie, it's Gorgonzola, a crumbly summertime stinker veined with pop-cultural fungus.

A country-club member takes a club employee under her wing in this cagey formula thriller that exploits homosexuality better than murder-mystery clues.

Dark and twisted, with sexually suggestive undercurrents, this one's as safe to miss as a sunburn by the club poolside.

Christian Science Monitor

The movie is billed as an erotic thriller, but it's not very erotic, nor is it really all that thrilling. It's just there, a languid, workmanlike time-waster that's the multiplex equivalent of sitting around the country club pool and working on your tan.

The acting is universally abysmal, although so are all the lines of dialogue. So I can't entirely blame the cast members.

The In Crowd's deep, dark secret? That it, too, is just a mediocre movie-of-the-week in feature-film clothing.

Stone the crows! Or is that flog the dead horse? Either way, this is cobblers.

The In Crowd isn't a movie--it's a J. Crew catalogue. Junk mail, junk movie.

Somebody wrote this, directed this, and wrote out checks for the actors. They all have family somewhere proudly boasting that their child makes movies in Hollywood.

This is the stuff of good, clean, campy fun. But instead of titillating, The In Crowd is nothing but a deadly dull business.

There was no advance screening for this movie, so I actually had to pay to see this one myself. Don't make my mistake, because I'll never see that eight dollars ever again!

Lack of a sympathetic main character is only one of the film's many faults.

Audience Reviews for The In Crowd

The In Crowd is the obligatory teen thriller done with a twist and lots of sex appeal. A cute blonde and possible psycho (Lori Heuring) is released from the local girls' hospital for a work program at a posh club. Before she knows it the club queen and head hottie, Brittany (Susan Ward - with a skeleton in the closet) has taken her under her wing. But when the new girl crosses Britney, there's hell to pay as all of a sudden some pesky "accidents" and mysterious killings start bothering the club. Could darling, mysterious Brittany be the real crazy woman? The movie is filled with sexy bodies doing sexy things and there was this one scene when two of the "In Crowd" girls started to make moves on each other. Unfortunately the PG-13 got in the way and spoiled the fun. Dang!
