“A flawless evocation of the uncanny which pits the subconscious against the supernatural to genuinely hair-raising effect.” — Mark Kermode

Deborah Kerr stars in this unnerving ghost story, based on Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw, a classic gothic psychological drama about innocence possessed by evil. Shortly after coming to live with two orphans in their dark, eerie mansion, the new governess (Kerr) mistakes their strange behavior for preciousness. But she soon comes to believe that the charming, beautiful children are possessed by evil, malicious spirits – the souls of their deceased previous governess and estate manager. (1961, 100 min, 35mm)
