Initiation Trailer Has A Serial Killer Hunting Down Pledges on a College Campus


It all starts with social media. It’s no longer fun and games after pledges and college students are targeted by a serial killer.

In the teen horror Initiation, the sorority sisters and the campus administration against time to unmask a killer after playing a social media game revolving an exclamation mark.

The cast includes Jon Huertas, Isabella Gomez, Lindsay LaVanchy, Froy Gutierrez, Gattlin Griffith, Patrick Walker, Bart Johnson, James Berardo, Maxwell Hamilton, Shireen Lai, Yancy Butler, and Lochlyn Munro. John Berardo directed the movie from a script written by Berardo, Lindsay LaVanchy, and Brian Frager.

Here’s the full synopsis:

Teen horror is back with a vengeance in this edgy slasher about a cruel social media game that spins out of control. Whiton University unravels the night a star-athlete is murdered in the wake of a hidden assault allegation, kicking off a spree of social media-linked slayings. As a masked killer targets students across campus, a trio of sorority sisters race to uncover the truth behind the school’s hidden secrets—and the horrifying meaning of an exclamation point—before they become the killer’s next victims.

Initiation looks like a good mystery-thriller in the tune of horror cult favorite Scream that spawned a franchise. Not sure if there are any humor moments in this film. This film raises plenty of current issues, including sexual assault, college parties, social media presence, and relevancy of the college Greek system. Let’s just see what the twist is for the movie. So, I’m willing to give this movie a definite chance.

Saban Films slated for the release of the movie in select theaters, On Demand, and digitally on May 7.
