Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


Ready for a little gothic horror? Join us “Down a Dark Hall” for a look at the supernatural, women-led film adaptation of a 70s novel.

Down a Dark Hall

This week, Carnage takes us to a Gothic mansion where a school for troubled but gifted young women harbors dark secrets!

Down A Dark Hall is the film adaptation of the Lois Duncan novel of the same name, directed by Rodrigo Cortés and written by Chris Sparling and Michael Goldbach (as Mike Goldbach.) It was released in select theaters and through video-on-demand in the United States on August 17, 2018.

It follows the story of Kit Gordy (AnnaSophia Robb), a teen girl whose parents are at their wit’s end due to her constant acting out. Her psychologist has seemingly found an answer to their problems in the form of the Blackmoor boarding school run by Madame Durant (Uma Thurman, Kill Bill), who promises to draw out and develop Kit’s latent talent.

But her methods and motives are sinister, and Kit soon finds that the beautiful halls are more oppressive than inspiring.

She becomes a piano virtuoso practically overnight, though she and the other girls at the school, including Orphan‘s Isabelle Fuhrman, suffer from missing time, obsessive devotion to their creative pursuits, losing touch with reality, voices that speak only to them, and ghastly apparitions that roam the halls at night.

Will Kit be able to regain control of her life before it’s too late, and how will she confront the dark forces conspiring to tear them all apart? Join us as we discuss Down A Dark Hall!

Hosts Chaos and Carnage are two best friends who love to talk about horror movies. They take turns picking a movie each week to terrorize their cohost with. And once the mics are on, the bickering and bantering begin. Best friends for 20 years, their bickering is aged like a fine wine. Or cheese. New episodes drop every Monday.

Spoilers and expletives abound.
