When Sarah, a young college freshman, joins a sorority to fit in with the popular kids, she encounters one problem: this sorority is run by a witch who knows that Sarah has supernatural powers. The witch encourages her to use her latent psychic powers to get revenge on her rivals…thus begins The Initiation Of Sarah. The all-star cast includes Kay Lenz (Moving Violation), Morgan Brittany (Dallas), Morgan Fairchild (The Seduction), Shelley Winters (The Poseidon Adventure), Kathryn Crosby (The 7th Voyage Of Sinbad), Tony Bill (Shampoo) and Tisa Farrow (Zombie).

A beautiful high school student becomes the target of a campaign of terror and eventually becomes the victim of an attack and mental torture in Are You In The House Alone? . Kathleen Beller (Dynasty), Dennis Quaid (Dreamscape), Blythe Danner (Future World), Tony Bill (Shampoo) and Robin Mattson (Phantom Of The Paradise) star in this iconic and terrifying thriller.

The reviewer before me said that she had seen The Initiation of Sarah, but not Are You in the House Alone. I'm the other way around, so I'll fill in where that reviewer left off. As "Horror movies" go, Are You in the House Alone isn't all that horrible. If you are looking for gore and mayhem, look elsewhere. This is more of a psychological drama where the suspense builds up until the final event. And this was a tv movie, which means it was not high-budget and/or Oscar material. Still, I think it's an enjoyable movie with a fairly well-developed plot. The story is simple; a very pretty high school girl begins to be stalked by someone who calls her and leaves notes in her locker that seem to be threatening. She becomes increasingly frightened but, due to other circumstances, everyone around her either thinks it's a prank or doesn't have time to listen to her. Finally, events occur that no one can ignore. Again, if you're looking for The Shining, Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Frankenstein; this is not that kind of suspense movie, so look elsewhere.

As soon as the opening credits of Walter Grauman's "Are You in the House Alone?" roll, and you hear the jive-talking boogie theme music, you know you are being transported back to the late '70s. This movie has often been compared in some respects to "Halloween," as both feature the use of unsteady, subjective camera work, in which the victim(s) are viewed through the creepy eyes of the perpetrator, not to mention that they both appeared at virtually the same time (in the fall of 1978), and the action in both takes place in a big, creeky old house.

The fact remains, though, that "Are You in the House Alone?" was undoubtedly not without influence of its own, and should be acknowledged as such. Specifically, I feel that several scenes from the following year's "When a Stranger Calls" (Fred Walton, 1979) were lifted whole from the earlier "Alone." And yet I personally find Grauman's film to be the more enjoyable and suspenseful of the two.

"Are You in the House Alone?", based on a 1976 novel by Richard Peck, concerns a beautiful high school student named Gail (Kathleen Beller of "Dynasty") as the new girl in an undisclosed San Francisco suburb. She makes friends with Alison (Robin Mattson, who appeared on the NBC soap opera "Santa Barbara" in the late '80s), and early on in the film it is apparent that Gail has caught the unwanted attention of an obsessed stalker. First, she and Alison are spied on while in a state of undress in their bathing suits at a lake. This soon escalates into Gail receiving an anonymous, late night heavy breathing phone call, followed by a creepy note left in her locker warning "I'm Watching You.

I haven't seen ARE YOU IN THE HOUSE ALONE, but I've often seen the 1978 TV movie, THE INITIATION OF SARAH. For that film alone, this DVD is worth it.

Yes, The Initiation of Sarah was inspired by Carrie -- but it also surpasses Carrie. For unlike Carrie, The Initiation of Sarah was a TV-movie, hence subject to budgetary and censorial restraints. But it overcame these restraints, even turning them to its advantage by emphasizing story and acting and atmosphere over shocks and gore. It's my personal favorite horror TV-movie, better than the oft-cited and rightly praised The Night Stalker.

The Initiation of Sarah tells a common tale: A young high school/summer camp/college nerd is long picked on, then finally retaliates. In the horror genre, the nerd often employs supernatural powers, or is severely injured in a "prank gone bad" so that he becomes an uberpsycho.

The Initiation of Sarah, like Carrie and The Craft, follows the former pattern. Like Carrie, Sarah (Kay Lenz) has telekinetic powers, which manifest when she's angered. But as she is unable to control its destructive potential, and being a good-hearted nerdy girl, Sarah suppresses her powers.

The film begins with Sarah and her half-sister, Patty (Morgan Brittany), going off to college. Both pledge the campus's elite sorority, ANS (Alpha Nu Sigma), but ANS only accepts the beautiful Patty, not the mousy Sarah.

Two of my favorite TV movies from the 70's. Sound and "video" clear.

I bought these for fun and really enjoyed them. Good old fashioned 70's suspense movies. I like them because the settings and cars are all from my era. The high school scenes,too have that 70's look. The clothes décor,etc. . Two good movies with good plots and Morgan Fairchild too.

A DOUBLE BILL OF TONY BILL. Tony is probably more famous for being an award-winning producer (THE STING) than he is an actor. The University of Notre Dame-educated Bill is a gifted actor along with his other creative talents.

In THE INITIATION OF SARAH, he turns in a strong supporting role as the graduate student teacher who falls for the pretty and winsome, but equally mysterious and perplexing, Sarah Goodwin. Sarah is the adopted sister of Patty Goodwin, the equally beautiful and enchanting daughter who is very much favored by their mom (Kathryn Crosby, in a convincing and respectable but way too brief role).

Sorority life is not as pretty when seen from the inside. The viciousness and back-biting are sadly a rite of passage as young women vie to be a member of the most coveted sorority on campus, Alpha Sigma Nu. While Patty is a shoo-in for the snobby sorority led by the always enjoyable and gorgeous, Morgan Fairchild, Sarah is chosen by PED (Phi Epsilon Delta), cruelly referred to as "Pigs, Elephans and Dogs" by the snooty sisters of Alpha Sigma Nu.

TIOS has often been referred to as "Carrie with friends." Some of that is true. Like Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) in CARRIE of 1976, Sarah is an outcast who is cruelly belittled by those who put her down it seems to only lift themselves and their own personal demons higher. Like Carrie, Sarah has a secret power that eventually she is forced to turn into a deadly weapon. There are major differences, however. Carrie was pushed over the edge of sanity and her tragic revenge was upon one and all. Sarah's revenge was out of her love of her dear friend, Tisa Farrow (a wonderful actress and sister of Mia Farrow). Talia Balsam provides superb support to a stellar cast.
