Audience Reviews for Turn of the Screw

A psychological thriller in which a new governess sees ghosts and vows to protect her charges from their plots and corruptions. The score was a little overpowering at times, as if trying to make up for a lack of acting ability, but that wasn't really the case. The cast was good, the movie suspenseful and interesting, and now I have only to read the book to see how well it followed it.
