Innocence: Yet another girl starts at a new school and something spooky is going on. In this case it's an upscale Manhattan prep school, Hamilto, centuries old, exclusive. A girl jumps off a school building almost hitting Beckett, the new girl. There is an odd atmosphere, in the classrooms, the corridors, some Hamilton old girls (including teachers) have a creepy book club. Beckett investigates and finds that another two girls have committed suicide. There is a nest of Vampires in the school! This tale unfolds slowly and while a nice broody, Gothic atmosphere builds up it is overlong. Interesting Vampire action without the overuse of special effects but this might have worked better as an episode of an anthology series. Directed/Co-written by Hilary Brougher. On Netflix. 6/10.
