Innocents
  • Description

    Jack Clayton's celebrated screen adaptation of Henry James's The Turn of the Screw is a brilliant exercise in psychological horror. Impressionable and repressed governess Miss Giddens (Deborah Kerr) agrees to tutor two orphaned children, Miles and Flora. On arrival at Bly House, she becomes convinced that the children are possessed by the perverse spirits of former governess Miss Jessel and her Heathcliffe-like lover Quint (Peter Wyngarde), who both met with mysterious deaths.

    The film's sinister atmosphere is carefully created - not through shock tactics, but through its cinematography, soundtrack, and decor: Freddie Francis' beautiful CinemaScope photography, with its eerily indistinct long shots and mysterious manifestations at the edges of the frame; an evocative and spooky soundtrack; and the grand yet decaying Bly House. Widely considered to be one of the greatest of all ghost stories on film.

The Innocents

Great release of a great movie. Over half a century old and still as chilling as I believe it initially was. Some trouble with the delivery, but zavvi fixed it as soon as I informed them.

Classic

One of the best horror movies of all time. Excellent movie. If you like horror movies,you can´t go wrong with this one...

Innocents

This is an excellent movie, and a great blu-ray release. It may be a little slow at times but the atmosphere and photography build the mood for a very entertaining supernatural ghost story. It's really in the style of say the original version of 'the haunting' where it's more about what you don't see rather than what you do - that builds the atmosphere. It has a great cast including Deborah Kerr and the always superb Pamela Franklin, and is certainly recommended if you like well-acted, old-style suspense.
