Quotes

Esme: You've been a very bad little pledge. You know the rules, Alpha Nus don't speak to pigs, elephants or dogs.
Lindsey Goodwin: I'm sorry, it won't happen again, she's my sister.
Esme: Uh, not anymore. She made her choice and you made yours. You're not regretting it, are you?
Lindsey Goodwin: No.
Esme: Good. But you know, you've been getting off pretty easy because it's Hell Week and your fellow pledges have been proving their loyalty by scrubbing toilets and waiting on the active's hand and foot while you... uh, it would be so sad if you ...

Should be put in movie theaters
31 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I gotta say, for an made for TV movie, the Initaition of Sarah is pretty good. With all the other "horror" and "scary" movie crap out there this should have be put in movie theaters. The special effects may not be all that great, but it's still got a nice plot and twist to it, and doesn't ruin a single bit of it. I especially appluade the actors' performances and I've become a bit of Mika Boorem (is that spelled right?) fan after seeing this. And true the movie may not be all that scary, but it adds a great feel to the whole Halloween theme. I've never seen the original film at all, but after seeing this I've been dying to!!!! The Initiation of Sarah is one of the greatest made-for-TV movies ever and should've been put on the big screen. ABC Family really delivered this time.
