5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent spooky chiller, 5 Jan 2002
I was a bit unsure about The Others as it sported a '12' Certificate, but I found out something that I've never seen before.
Just because of it's 12 certificate it doesn't mean that the film doesn't spook you onto the egde of your seat. It has no bad violence or bad language and that opens up the world of horror to a younger audience.
The Others wouldn't rank up with the real horrors of late (gorewise) e.g the Scream series of films and Stephen King novels transformed onto the silver screen with an '18' rating, but The Others provides spookiness, it deceives the audience into what the real identities and truths of the characters are, and that real does contribute to this enchanting thriller.
Set in a haunting house in a foggy island off England, solid performances by Kidman and the adding trio of housekeepers and gardeners, and realistic shows by the children ensures that this haunter ranks up with the best of 2001.
