WHAT IT'S ABOUT:

Kit (AnnaSophia Robb), a difficult young girl, is sent to the mysterious Blackwood Boarding School when her heated temper becomes too much for her mother to handle. Once she arrives at Blackwood, Kit encounters eccentric headmistress Madame Duret (Uma Thurman) and meets the school’s only other students, four young women also headed down a troubled path. 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.

WHAT THE CRITICS THOUGHT:

Its elegant subtlety feels refreshing in this era of over-the-top horror films. - Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

Ultimately, Down a Dark Hall falls victim to familiar teen horror tropes: a brooding lead with a heart of gold, predictable jump scares, wincingly bad romantic tension, and obvious villains. - Tatiana Craine, Village Voice

This supernatural chiller is a delightfully sneaky surprise. - Randy Cordova, Arizona Republic
Well-acted horror, with frights, laughs and pathos.- Roger Moore, Movie Nation
