Summit Entertainment has dropped a new clip from its horror movie Down a Dark Hall, which becomes available on digital platforms and in certain theaters today.
The 50-second video finds the girls of Blackwood Boarding School barricading themselves inside a room, hiding from something that is stalking them in the poorly lit hallway just beyond the door. You might get flashbacks to The Village, but that's OK because we're talking about the tension you felt when you saw those red-cloaked monsters before Shyamalan revealed they were just people in costumes.
Watch the clip below and see the cleverly placed set dressing of a poster that reads "RUN RUN RUN."
Directed by Rodrigo Cortés (Buried) and produced by Stephenie Meyer (Twilight), the film stars AnnaSophia Robb as Katherine "Kit" Gordy, a troubled student who is sent to the mysterious Blackwood Boarding School, run by Madame Duret (Uma Thurman).
It seems like Gordy will flourish among girls her own age, but then she stumbles onto a part of the building that is off limits. What's it hiding? We don't know, but it could be a doorway to hell, or a dimension that's even darker. Naturally, strange things start to happen to the inhabitants of Blackwood: Students become possessed and monster-demons start popping up in dark hallways.
The script is based on Lois Duncan's YA horror novel of the same name; you might recall that Duncan also wrote I Know What You Did Last Summer, which spawned three movies.
Down a Dark Hall is now in select theaters as well as on iTunes and VOD.
