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

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"The fear of sex underlining Cat People is a mere copped feel compared to the turbulent erotic paranoia moistening Jack Clayton’s adaptation of Henry James’s psychological ghost story The Turn of the Screw. As Deborah Kerr’s governess discovers the kids are far from all right, Clayton contrasts her cold sweats against an endlessly ripening, mossy English backdrop, where the screams of humans are usurped by the mating calls of mocking birds. As an acquaintance aptly put it, this is the pruri"

Fall Horrorfest 2018 (40 movies items)

" Watched September 30th Rating: A pretty and somewhat quaint classic that still delivers on distressing, strange atmosphere. Your mileage may vary when it comes to creepy children, but this one is a bit more "down to earth" in that the children may(?) be possessed by the ghosts (spirits? demons?) of adults and are therefore not inherently evil. It is put together masterfully, and I can say I was uncomfortable and tense through most of it. It was a little hard to stay immersed at times because"

TDcore's Horror Journal: 2018 (50 movies items)

" This is easily one of the most beautiful, haunting and quietly disturbing horror films I've ever seen. And though it holds it's place amongst the genre's classics, I still feel it doesn't get all the credit it deserves. It's a masterpiece almost solely in the fact that it achieves fear in the most subtle of ways. Almost everything is pitch perfect, from the excellent cast to the gorgeous cinematography and writing. It hasn't aged in the slightest and is still every bit as effective as it was "
