    Such a good movie. Not horror in a sense but about life and choices we make and how they define us. Highly recommend

    Nice camera and lighting. Music score nice too. However the plot is a bit weak.

    The suspense had my chest tight the entire time. The premise of the movie is excellent. Yes, there were some story/pacing flaws, but overall it was very enjoyable. The cast, camerawork, music and overall visual of it was brilliant. I usually multitask while watching tv or movies, this however, had me enthrawled. I put down my pen and just watched. I think it deserved a better score than I see it has. However, it may just be a movie that needs the viewer to be in a certain mind frame to watch, and an appreciation of the arts to enjoy.

    Can't say I wasn't too impressed with this film. The ending is still an intriguing watch and some really interesting ideas there

    Started interesting with a sort of classic vibe, but was later to progress too hasty and at times not quite making sense.

    AnnaSophia Robb and Uma Thurman lead the cast in the supernatural horror film Down a Dark Hall. Based on a bestselling book, the story follows a rebellious teenage girl who's sent to a reform school for troubled youth called Blackwood, but she soon discovers that something strange is going on and begins to suspect that she and her fellow students are being used for some nefarious purpose. Robb gives a fairly good performance and director Rodrigo Cortes does an impressive job at creating an atmospheric mood. However, the storytelling is a little weak and lacks strong villains. Also, the supernatural isn't really played for scares, and the scares that are there seem a little out of place. Still, despite its problems, Down a Dark Hall is a creepy thriller full of mystery and intrigue.
