What you may expect from an ABC Family film that tries to cater to Halloween enthusiasts looking for something much more tame to watch at a sleepover is kept at a simmer with a little trace of bad dialogue, over acting, and heavy handed emotional themes. Cheesy pop/rock and awkward character introductions happen seldom and not nearly enough to make you wanna find something else to watch. But man, are they ever present. I was thoroughly surprised by how good this movie was. Unexpected plot twists and a Xander-like performance from 'the guy' (Ben Ziff's Finn), The Initiation of Sarah is palatable for the entire spectrum of spooky movie fans. It may not be everyone's flavor, but I imagine that few people would label it "bad".
