SYNOPSIS: Haunted by the death and dreams of her beloved mother in a Montauk surfing accident, 16 year old Beckett and her father, novelist Miles Warner, move to Manhattan and attempt to piece together their shattered life. Now enrolled at the exclusive Hamilton preparatory school, her psychosis and hallucinations intensify with the dubious suicides of current and past students as does her first love for Tobey Crawford. The discovery that her new school may be run by a coven of beautiful and seductive women who perpetuate their youth by drinking the blood of virgins becomes the ultimate challenge of Beckett and Tobey’s young lives.

INNOCENCE is a chilling allegory of the precarious state of an American teenager, explores themes of loss, the human condition and a society torn between purity and narcissism.

INNOCENCE stars Kelly Reilly (Heaven Is for Real, Sherlock Holmes), Sophie Curtis, and Graham Phillips (The Good Wife). Look for it to hit select theaters on SEPTEMBER 5th.

Check out the trailer:


I was reading some book reviews of Innocence on goodreads and this book sounds really different and disturbing. The trailer give off kind of a Beautiful Creatures vibe to me. Have you read the book and do you think you’ll give the movie a shot?
