Description
Henry James' classic ghost tale "The Turn of the Screw" is adapted in this chilling and dark film about innocence over taken by evil. Deborah Kerr stars as a governess sent to Bly House to look after two orphaned children taken in by their aloof uncle, played by Michael Redgrave. However, the brother and sister soon begin to exhibit odd behavior and Kerr comes to believe that there may be dark spirits luring the children towards an evil from which they may never return.

          I don't know if that other reviewer didn't watch the movie or what but this movie is amazing!!
          Let me start by saying I am NOT a horror fan. I hate being scared and blood and gore, just not my style, but this is a Deborah Kerr movie so I had to give it a try.

          The movie started off strange to me, a bit unconventional but I excused my on understanding and kept watching. Deborah's character seemed a bit timid which she can play quite well.

          Later on as the children are introduced along with the nanny and sets tension began to rise as things keep getting stranger and stranger. If you like horror movies where people scream and hold their head as they don't run away, and look idiotic; you will NOT like this movie.

          HOWEVER if you like movies like Hitchcock (building in tension and not knowing what will happen) even endings where all of the strings aren't tied up, maybe with some original effects, and freaky imagination; you WILL like this movie :)

          Deborah shines as a timid, yet innocently confused woman trying to make heads or tails of a situation where she has to look out for others before herself.

          I watched this and was terribly disappointed1 I won't even give this as a gift to anyone else. Deborah Kerr was too fine an actress to be a part of this!
