Storyline

Adrien Williams enters the "in crowd" when she is hired by a posh East Coast country club and befriended by Brittany Foster, the charismatic leader of a clique of wealthy college students who are home for the summer. Brittany takes Adrien under her wing, attempts to show her the benefits of the good life and introduces her to other members of her inner circle, including the object of Brittany's affection, tennis pro Matt Curtis. When Matt shows an interest in Adrien, Brittany begins to reveal her dark side and Adrien slowly starts to learn that Brittany and her pack of friends will do anything to protect their circle and the dark secrets they harbor.

Trivia

Susan Ward sprained her left ankle in the scene where she rushes inside the maintenance room beside the swimming pool after a victim. The scene was put together from two different locations with the actress actually rushing inside a small storage shed, which was spliced with the underground maintenance area which was in a another location. When Ward ran into the room, her heel got snagged on a rubber mat inside the door, twisting her ankle. Some of her scenes afterward around the swimming pool do not show her walking or only standing.

Alternate Versions

The European Special Edition DVD is 12 minutes longer than the original version of the movie which was released in theaters and in the American DVD/video, and contains several scenes which were originally cut for nudity, sex or violence (so the movie could obtain a 'PG13' rating). The four main scenes in the Euro edition that are not in the original version are:
  • 1. A sex scene between Brittany (Susan Ward) and the doctor (Daniel Hugh Kelly). Susan Ward strips fully nude, the doctor performs oral sex on her, then they have sex.
  • 2. A lesbian sex scene between Brittany (Susan Ward) and Kelly (Laurie Fortier). Susan strips Laurie to her underwear and performs oral sex on her, before murdering her.
  • 3. A topless scene where Brittany (Susan Ward) goes to Adrien's (Lori Heuring) room to change her shirt. The two girls have a conversation while Susan Ward is topless, then she is seen getting dressed.
  • 4. A longer and more violent version of the catfight scene between Brittany (Susan Ward) and Adrien (Lori Heuring).

User Reviews

 
Shallow, pretentious monotony.
28 November 2000 | by =G=See all my reviews

"The In Crowd" is a mindless drama about a young woman who, released from a mental hospital on a work furlough program at a resort for rich kids, becomes involved in murder and intrigue. This unfortunate film takes off like a snail on Quaaludes and spends over half the run time developing paper thin characters amidst a quagmire of filler. Although the production is technically nominal, acting is amateurish, direction poor, script blah, and the story just plain weak.
