Welcome to Blackwood, where lost girls find their way...
From the producers of The Twilight Saga comes the new trailer and poster for DOWN A DARK HALL.

While exploring the labyrinthine corridors of the school, Kit and her classmates discover that Blackwood Manor hides an age-old secret rooted in the paranormal. Catch DOWN A DARK HALL in theaters, On Demand, and on iTunes August 17th!
As I was getting ready to write my review I noticed that Stephanie Meyer (writer of The Twilight Saga) is one of the producers as are two other producers from the Twilight movies. I find this Interesting that it reminded me of Twilight even though it was nothing like it.
Down A Dark Hall is about a group of troubled girls sent to stay at the Blackwood Boarding School. Kit is our main girl and by far my favorite character. I remembered her face from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and Bridge to Terabithia. As paranormal things start happening to her new friends, Kit makes it her mission to figure out the secrets of Blackwood and there are many.
The movie is based on a YA book of the same name by Lois Duncan which I now feel like I need to read because the movie definitely was interesting to me. I must have loved it because I keep thinking about it.
There were times where I felt that AnnaSophia Robb went to the Kristin Stewart school of acting and that Madam Duret's son was very Edward Cullen but other than that the movie moved quick. It is the perfect 13+ Horror movie.
I cannot wait to watch it again but this time with my daughter. I think she will enjoy the paranormal part, roll her eyes at the sometimes weird girl issues but will love it just as much as I did.
