Critic Reviews for Down a Dark Hall

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (8)

Down a Dark Hall eventually goes Down a Convoluted Tunnel, with some admittedly creepy but also just plain crazy sequences.

August 17, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Rodrigo Cortés' mild supernatural mystery often feels like an incomplete genre exercise; one that reluctantly tiptoes around its "Suspiria"-for-teens premise.

August 17, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

This is a decent modern Gothic thriller handled with sufficient style and a straight face by genre ace Cortés.

The scares might not satisfy those old enough to vote, but it should provide mild chills for its target audience.

August 16, 2018 | Full Review…

With each new element, "Down a Dark Hall" reveals itself, with improbable delight, to be genuinely strange - a movie in which viewers can pick their own pleasure, no two spectators having exactly the same experience.

August 16, 2018 | Full Review…

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.
