"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.

"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. When she arrives at the estate she tries to make friends with the children. Later she finds out the former governess died and the children begin to act weird when an unknown man appears. Being an old black and white film there are no real effects or gore so it all relie"
