Day Six // 31 Day Horror Challenge

Well..this movie was just too old for me and I can't use that as an excuse all the time, but I don't know old films aren't as exciting anymore, and it's a real shame. It did have a few good scenes but nothing memorable.

"I saw The Innocents last night and I was quite impressed. The basic plot - A woman starts a new job as a governess to 2 children the nephew and niece of a wealthy businessman who frankly cannot be bothered to look after them.
