Editorial Reviews

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.

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.

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.

Before the Lifetime Network and other cable channels began producing original features, the big three (CBS, ABC, and NBC for those born in 1990 or later) had their "Movies of the Week" events. Once a week or so, hot actors from the popular shows of the time and semi-retired big-screen stars would appear in a special TV-movie that mirrored the pop culture interests or social issues of the moment. There would be ones about natural disasters, true crimes, and inspirational tales just to name a few subjects.

Shout! Factory's horror imprint takes us back to those glory days with "Scream Factory Presents TV Terrors." This DVD double feature includes two movies from 1978 guaranteed to both make you nostalgic for the era and glad it's over all at the same time. The movies highlighted in this collection include "The Initiation of Sarah" and "Are You in the House Alone?!"

"The Initiation of Sarah" tells the tale of a college freshman (Kay Lenz) with telekinetic powers. She is pressured to join a sorority after her sister (Morgan Brittany) is recruited to a rival chapter run by a group of popular bullies. It just so happens that the house Sarah pledges is run by a witch (Shelley Winters). She wants to use the girl to exact revenge on the daughter (Morgan Fairchild) of the sorority girl that spurned her when she was a student 20 years earlier. Will Sarah give into the temptation to put her and the house mother's tormenting rivals in their place or resist the unrelenting anger brewing within her?

Although it's a bit slow, "The Initiation of Sarah" serves up some fun TV-safe scares. I can see this airing the week of Halloween in 1978 and doing quite well in the Nielsen ratings.
