The Innocents Reviews

October 6, 2014
You can watch 'The Innocents' twice and walk away with different conclusions. Psychological horrors have imitated its ambiguous ending ever since. Few have pulled it off half as creepily.

If the picture is journeyman James, it is also pitapatational entertainment, the most sophisticated scare show since Diabolique.

Based on Henry James' story Turn of the Screw this catches an eerie, spine-chilling mood right at the start and never lets up on its grim, evil theme.

Too much Freud and too little thought.

Is it the finest, smartest, most visually savvy horror film ever made by a big studio?

Sends some formidable chills down the spine.

No shock tactics here, just the careful creation of sinister atmosphere through decor, Freddie Francis' haunting camerawork, and evocative acting. Kerr, especially, is excellent.
