The Initiation is not helped by marginal acting either. No one really steals the show here. Everyone is equally flat, including Daphne Zuniga [Melrose Place, The Fly II] who is an accomplished actress but NOT in this film. Granted, The Initiation is early in her career but if you contrast her work to Heather Langenkamp's performance in A Nightmare on Elm Street [which came out the same year] there's no comparison. Langenkamp kicks her butt.
The best thing I can say about this film is that I was happy when it ended. It's all been seen and done before and done much better. Don't waste your time on this one.
