Who are the two most memorable teen writers of the 80s and 90s? I would definitely say Enid Blyton, who wrote the Famous Five and the Secret Seven series, and of course Edward Stratemeyer, the creator of Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys. Out of all the books these authors wrote, Nancy Drew has been adapted into movies the most number of times. Another adaptation of this will be coming out real soon and this one is about Nancy investigating a haunted house where bulbs explode and the staircase makes creaking noises. But will she be able to decode the mystery behind these hauntings? You must see the film to find out.
If you’re looking for some more teenage mystery dramas, then we’ve got a list of movies that are very much like ‘Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase’. The list includes movies where the characters find themselves in a similar situation as Nancy and out of curiosity, try unraveling a mystery. Then there are also movies about teenagers who are stuck in life or death situations and have only a limited period of time to figure things out. Depending on your mood, you can choose whether you want a time-bound mystery adventure that’ll keep you at the edge of your seat or just an interesting flick about how a teen manages to decipher or solve an ongoing problem. You can also watch several of these movies like Nancy Drew on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
