Lois Duncan was my most favorite author when I was growing up. I read and reread her books. I own them all now! And my favorite - Down a Dark Hall. Loved it so much.
Well, they have made a movie out of it! Yes, yes it's not completely the story. I can they've changed quite a bit BUT it still keeps the basic of it! And whenever I go into a movie based on a book, I go in knowing it will be different.
Here's the trailer!
Here's about the movie
DOWN A DARK HALL
In Theaters, On Demand, and On iTunes August 17th
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.
