While I have to support Summer Glau, the film is so cheesy and weak it can't even stand.

Extra-violent and snobby sorority horror remake.

Audience Reviews for The Initiation of Sarah

Stuart Gillard's The Initiation of Sarah is a made for TV film that is a remake of the 1978 movie with the same name. So it is a remake and it is made for TV. That doesn't sound like a great combination.Although it is made for TV, this film is put together fairly well and it is passable for a movie that has gone to the theater. With that said, the story isn't spectacular and it is pretty much what one would expect from a film like this. 2 sorority houses try to recruit a college student who appears to be "the chosen one." For the most part, the film goes back and forth as the two sides work on recruiting this student. It isn't funny, it isn't scary, and it isn't exciting. It is just OK at best.There are a few effects, which are quite good. There is room for more, especially when it involves women with supernatural powers. As for the violence, it is minimal and not bloody or gory at all. Remember, this is made for television.The actresses are pretty, but the acting isn't anything special. Both the lead, Mika Boorem, and Summer Glau are just average. Jennifer Tilly's role matches her nicely and that is probably why she turns out good. Joanna Garcia puts on a decent performance as well.The Initiation of Sarah does have a few positives, but this is probably still one to skip.

Very similar to "Carrie" but featuring far more beautiful actresses.

Really bad. One of the worst movies I've watched on Lifetime.
