Retro Poster: "The Innocents" (1961)

When Miss Giddens (Deborah Kerr) accepts a governess job to look after a wealthy bachelor's niece and nephew, she begins to suspect that the children are being haunted by spirits who are causing them to act out. Directed by Jack Clayton, "The Innocents" relies heavily on minimal lighting and chilling sound and music effects to create a haunting atmosphere. If you are a fan of psychological horror rather than blood and guts, this one's for you. The film is based on the novel "The Turn of the Screw" by Henry James.



I like horror movies. That is all.
