Stylish, intelligent thriller that relies on mood more than easy scares.,
This review is from: The Others  [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Very strong ghost story, with excellent performances and clever twists. Frightening without ever being obvious,
and I appreciate that it stresses atmosphere, character and subtlety over 'cats jumping from closets' type easy jolts,
Probably the closest analog in feel is the 60s classic 'The Innocents'. Some very smart and unexpected turns, and a
lot of real emotion for this genre. Nicole Kidman is great, as are the two kids playing her children
A smashingly entertaining, stylish haunted house thriller.
The blu-ray is a notable step up in clarity and color.
