The Innocents

This chilling, atmospheric adaptation of Henry James’ novella The Turn of the Screw concerns an English governess (Deborah Kerr) to a pair of siblings; she believes the children are possessed by the spirits of their previous governess and her sadistic lover.

“Rightfully regarded as a masterpiece of Gothic cinema.” (

“Near-perfect ghost story.” (Time Out)

“The darkly atmospheric, lovely-looking film is beautifully photographed…director Clayton meticulously builds the tension, the eerie atmosphere, off-balance mood and unsettling suspense at a controlled, steady pace to its chilling climax.” (Derek Winnert)
