Audience Reviews for The Others

  • Oct 27, 2016
    Its retro editing and camerawork, as well as its spooky-good, classical frights and twists provide for a hauntingly stunning story. The Others displays a convincing Nicole Kidman along with the thrills and chills of a complex narrative that's even heartfelt at times, yet still exemplary for the horror genre. 4/5

    Absolutely spine chilling, The Others is a supernatural thriller starring Nicole Kidman. Set in the late '40s, a single mother caring for her two children who have an extreme sensitivity to sunlight that keeps them secluded indoors starts to experience a number of strange occurrences after taking on three new house servants. Director Alejandro Amenabar does a tremendous job at setting a creepy and atmospheric tone. The cinematography and score in particular are especially good, and give the film an ethereal quality. Additionally, the story is remarkably well structured and does an impressive job at creating intrigue. Incredibly frightening and full of mystery, The Others is an extraordinary horror film.

    I must admit, the Others is probably only about a three star film since there are a few too many clues. But still, I rate it up partly because I enjoyed some of the dramatic moments and mostly because I enjoyed watching Nicole Kidman.

    The Others is beautifully shot and features a strong performance from Nicole Kidman and a clever ending that falls short of mind-blowing.
