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.

A genuinely artistic thriller

"But above anything else, I love the children."

Bestowing 1961's The Innocents with the label of "haunted house horror" is too simplistic, and the accuracy of such a description is debatable. An adaptation of Henry James' 1898 novella The Turn of the Shrew, this is a chilling horror feature that's notable for being brilliantly ambiguous. When released, The Innocents was billed by Tw... read more

My Month of Movies: Nov/2015 (29 movies items)

"11/12 First viewing Synopsis: Based on the Henry James story "The Turn of the Screw," a psychological thriller about a woman who takes a governess job for two orphans in a Victorian home. She begins to see what she believes are ghosts and suspects the children's bizarre behavior is the result of supernatural powers. What can I say about this film that won't give anything away and still relay my feelings... It's a fine film, through and through, adapted from a certifiable classic of literature"

"CREEPY FUCKING KIDS harass a lady repeatedly. The Innocents has a terrific look and sound to it. The way it shows ghosts in their entirety but somehow manages to also not milk their existence at all to create some sort of added terror is wonderful. It's creepy without rubbing it in your face. The story has it's moments, but I can't help but feel slight disappointment over how the Freudian angle is left in the background (also, it's a Freudian angle which puts me to sleep at this point). Good thi"

CRITERION FILMS (781 movies items)

"This genuinely frightening, exquisitely made supernatural gothic stars Deborah Kerr as an emotionally fragile governess who comes to suspect that there is something very, very wrong with her precocious new charges. A psychosexually intensified adaptation of Henry James’s classic The Turn of the Screw, cowritten by Truman Capote and directed by Jack Clayton, The Innocents is a triumph of narrative economy and technical expressiveness, from its chilling sound design to the stygian depths of its "
