Innocents
  • Description

    Jack Clayton's celebrated screen adaptation of Henry James's The Turn of the Screw is a brilliant exercise in psychological horror. Impressionable and repressed governess Miss Giddens (Deborah Kerr) agrees to tutor two orphaned children, Miles and Flora. On arrival at Bly House, she becomes convinced that the children are possessed by the perverse spirits of former governess Miss Jessel and her Heathcliffe-like lover Quint (Peter Wyngarde), who both met with mysterious deaths.

    The film's sinister atmosphere is carefully created - not through shock tactics, but through its cinematography, soundtrack, and decor: Freddie Francis' beautiful CinemaScope photography, with its eerily indistinct long shots and mysterious manifestations at the edges of the frame; an evocative and spooky soundtrack; and the grand yet decaying Bly House. Widely considered to be one of the greatest of all ghost stories on film.

    Extra Features:

    • Filmed introduction and commentary with Professor Christopher Frayling
    • Original trailer for The Innocents
    • Naples is a Battle Field (Jack Clayton, 1944, 13mins) Rare and previously unseen RAF film
