Great Horror Film
16 June 2008 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Enjoyed this very mysterious film dealing with an all girls school which is surrounded by deep woods in New England during 1956. Heather Fasulo, (Agnes Bruckner) is a young girl and her mother does not get along with her teenage daughter and wants her to be put in this private school. Heather encounters some real mean and nasty girls to deal with and one girl called her fire crotch and treats her real rough and the two of them are always pulling hair and beating each other up. Ms. Traverse, (Patricia Clarkson) who is the school's principal and is very interested in Heather and she knows that Heather has special talents that are supernatural and is able to balance rocks and items on tables and has a special ability to hear voices. This story grows and grows into an intense horror film and you will never believe what happens in the woods. Enjoy.
