For most people, the words “from the producers of Twilight” probably doesn’t conjure up any excitement for Down a Dark Hall or their ability to do horror. However, after watching the trailer, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Be warned, there are some pretty creepy moments hidden within the 2-minutes.

Starring Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill‘s Uma Thurman, the film is based on the classic gothic YA novel of the same name by Lois Duncan, the author of I Know What You Did Last Summer, and produced by Stephenie Meyer of Twilight fame.

If you’re still brave enough to see it, Empire Entertainment has partnered with Fortress of Solitude for an early screening of the film. Here is your chance to grab yourself two tickets to the event.

Welcome to Blackwood – Where lost girls find their way.

Kit, 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 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.

Cast: Anna Sophia Robb, Isabelle Fuhrman, Victoria Moroles, Noah Silver, Taylor Russell, Rosie Day, Uma Thurman
