The displaced Heather becomes close friend of he weird Marcy Turner, while they are maltreated by the abusive mate Samantha Wise.

When some students, including Marcy, simply vanish, Heather believes she will be the next one.Written by

If you are looking for a bloody slasher flick, then look elsewhere, as this film is a spooky thriller along the lines of Dario Argento.
Agnes Bruckner, a superb young actress, plays a troubled teen whose mother puts her in a boarding school. It just so happens that she has special talents the headmistress (Patricia Clarkson - The Station Agent, The Green Mile, Pieces of April) and the other teachers are looking for.
Despite warnings from sexy Rachel Nichols, she is trapped and part of their diabolical scheme.
The suspense is tense throughout and it only gets bloody at the end. The acting is great and the tree effects are spectacular.
