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

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 "

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 Twentieth Century Fox as a horror film for the adult moviegoer since it's a serious and intellectual piece of work, rather than anything salacious, profane or cheap. Like 1963's The Haunting and 2001's The Others, this is a film which methodically develops tension and atmosphere, relying on what is unseen rather than rubber monsters or special effects.
