5.0 out of 5 stars Spine chilling classic, 9 Oct. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Innocents [1961] [DVD] (DVD)
What can I say apart from buy this classic British psychological horror at once, and bathe in its beautiful black and white imagery(courtesy of Freddie Francis), and also watch in wonder at a film that leaves so much to the imagination of its audience, leaving many questions unanswered at the end, and offering no cosy, comforting resolution.
Who are the children most at peril from, the malign spirits that haunt Bly House, or their new Governess as she mentally disintergrates? Are the ghosts of Quint and Mrs Jessell a very real and dangerous force or are they just a figment of Miss Gidden's fragile mind?
Too many chilling scenes to mention in one review, but I think the goodnight kiss is the most frightening and amibiguous of all.
One things for sure. Once watched The Innocents is a film that will linger in the mind of the viewer, long after it has finished. Well it did with me anyway.
Just a mention of this superb DVD release. The film itself looks absolutely stunning, and their are extras aplenty including a short film directed by Jack Clayton The Bespoke Overcoat, an excellent commentary by Professor Christopher Frayling, and the package comes complete with a lovely little booklet about the film.
I must say its nice to see classic British Horror treated with respect for a change, as many releases comes with no extras and poor transfers. So, full marks to the BFI for this wonderful release.
