"Initiation of Sarah" remake with Summer Glau coming Oct. 22. ABC Family has set a date for a remake of "The Initiation of Sarah". It will be on October 22nd as part of its "13 Days of Halloween" event.

Summer plays Lindsay, Sarah's sister, who will be caught in the crossfire between rival sororities, and black magic is involved. Morgan Fairchild, who was in the original TV-movie in 1978, comes back as Sarah and Lindsay's mom.

Ya know...it sucks that I can't see this for awhile (don't get ABC Family)...but I gotta ask: am I the only one kinda offput by Summer's hair in the character headshot? Cuz...it's one head of hair;)

Still...we all know she'll rock the show mightily...even with a female pompadour;D
BlueEyedBrigadier, she's clearly already preparing for her starring role in the upcoming remake of Coal Miner's Daughter.

Her brains are in terrible danger. :p
I admit I'm old enough to have watched the original when it was on TV the first time. We get ABC Family and I'm definitely going to watch this.
I'll be watching this too- the crazy 80's hair doesn't faze me.
Yes, but what about the shoulder pads?
She'll be ready for some football later?
Having lived through the 80s, I vividly remember when two women couldn't pass each other in a hallway unless one of them turned sideways, due to the shoulder pads.

I know the 60s and 70s have been repeated, fashion-wise, but I somehow don't see a return of 80s frumpy suits with built-in shoulder pads paired with skinny silk bow ties.

At least I won't go there again.

How true. I averaged sending two people per month to the workman's comp. doctor due to collisions.
Metaphorically speaking, I think the shoulder pads said something about women tackling new power positions in the work force.
Probably right, Reddygirl. Metaphorically speaking, I always thought neckties said something about men being willing to conform to walking around with their heads in the hangman's noose just to get power positions in the work force.
JLV, I like that analogy.

And since I have that kind of mind, my thoughts went to a naughty place where neckties and shoulder pads could be fun.
Reddygirl, I can conjure plenty naughtiful pursuits involving the ties, but I'll be darned if I can figure out what you plan to do with shoulder pads. Guess I'm not as naughty as I thought.
That thought is kind of depressing.
Ah, JLV, you're plenty naughty. Cheer up.
Also not seeing the shoulder pads possibilities unless your naughty place is "The 80s" Reddygirl ;).

Weren't ties originally something to do with the cruciform ?

(though I may just be getting confused because wearing a shirt and tie is practically against my religion ;).
It is against mine. I'm a denytieist.
Let's just say I had a friend (really, it was a friend, not me) who used to wear nothing but her detachable shoulder pads and her husband would pretend to tackle her. I'll just leave it at that.
