Aro Favourite Innocents, The


UK 1961, 100 minutes
Dir. Jack Clayton
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Horror, Classics, Suspense/Crime

Topics: Gothic.


Aroview: Notable adaptation of Henry James' ghost story "The Turn of the Screw", featuring Deborah Kerr as a neurotic nanny.

Taking a job at a spooky country mansion, she slowly comes to believe that the children she is entrusted with have been corrupted by the ghosts of evil former servants. A key entry in the gothic haunted house genre, this exceeds in atmospherics, photography and music, with an implicit sense of terror that most presentday directors would be hard-pressed to achieve with such economy and delicacy.
