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.

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

A suprisingly effective thriller
23 July 2000 | by doc-160See all my reviews

From its opening sequence in a hospital for the mentally unstable to the final,nailbiting,confrontation, The In Crowd delivers. The plot revolves around, Adrien, a young woman who is released from the aforementioned hospital, and as a condition of her release gets a job at a posh beach club for the rich and spoiled. Susan Ward, formerly of Sunset Beach, delivers an excellent performance as Brittany Foster, the defacto leader of a group of rich kids who have nothing better to do than party. Brittany befriends Adrien and slowly weaves a spell around the former mental patient, soon Adrien will come to regret knowing Brittany, to say anymore would spoil this movie, which is a suprisingly enteratining movie.
