Product Description

Product Description

Grace (Nicole Kidman) lives in semi-seclusion on a remote island with her two children, awaiting her husband's return from the war. Both children suffer from a rare form of photosensitivity which renders them open to harm from natural light. Thus the trio live in almost perpetual darkness within the house, according to a harsh but life-preserving set of rules that their mother has designed for them. When looking after the children by herself proves too much, Grace hires in some rather mysterious servants. Suddenly there seems to be more to the old house than Grace had previously sensed and a chilling descent into fear and paranoia begins.

From Amazon.co.uk

A welcome throwback to the spooky traditions of Jack Clayton's The Innocents and Robert Wise's The Haunting, Alejandro Amenábar's The Others favours atmosphere, sound, and suggestion over flashy special effects. Set in 1945 on a fog-enshrouded island off the British coast, the film begins with a scream as Grace (Nicole Kidman) awakens from some unspoken horror, perhaps arising from her religiously overprotective concern for her young children, Anne (Alakina Mann) and Nicholas (James Bentley). The children are hypersensitive to light and have lived in a musty manor with curtains and shutters perpetually drawn. With Grace's husband (Christopher Eccleston) presumably lost at war, this ominous setting perfectly accommodates a sense of dreaded expectation, escalating when three strangers arrive in response to Grace's yet-unposted request for domestic help. Led by housekeeper Mrs Mills (Fionnula Flanagan), this mysterious trio is as closely tied to the house's history as Grace's family is--as are the past occupants seen posthumously in a long-forgotten photo album. With her justly acclaimed performance, Kidman maintains an emotional intensity that fuels the film's supernatural underpinnings. And while Amenábar's pacing is deliberately slow, it befits the tone of penetrating anxiety, leading to a twist that extends the story's reach from beyond the grave. Amenábar unveiled a similarly effective twist in his Spanish thriller Open Your Eyes (remade by Cameron Crowe as Vanilla Sky), but where that film drew debate, The Others is finely crafted to provoke well-earned goose bumps and chills down the spine. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com --This text refers to the DVD edition.

By lawyeraau HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 17 Nov. 2002
Format: VHS Tape
This is a superb, atmospheric ghost story that will have the viewer thinking right from the get go. There are things afoot here that go bump in the night, but it may not be what the viewer thinks.
On the Isle of Jersey, during the last days of World War II, a lovely, isolated mansion sits in the shrouding mists. The house is adequately, though sparsely, furnished. It is occupied by a mother, Grace Stewart (Nicole Kidman), and her two children, Anne (Alakina Mann) and Nicholas (James Bentley). The children are afflicted with a great sensitivity to light, so much so that they must, at all times, have the curtains drawn and the shutters closed. Grace's husband, the children's father, had left them to fight in the war. This is a perfect and stark setting for what is to come.
One day, three strangers arrive on her doorstep. Grace presumes that they are there in response to her post for domestic help and hires Bertha Mills (Fionnula Flanagan), Edmund Tuttle (Eric Sykes), and Lydia (Elaine Cassidy) on the spot. Grace instructs them on the ideosyncratic ways she has of handling her children's sensitivity to light. It soon becomes clear, however, that this triumvirate has their own agenda and are not strangers to this house.
Nicole Kidman give a remarkable performance in this film. Tightly wound and controlling, she appears to be a woman on the brink of a breakdown, holding herself together only by a great effort of will, as she awaits her husband's return. Her performance as a lonely wife and seemingly protective mother contributes greatly to the tense and suspenseful atmosphere in the household. While I am not generally a fan of Ms.

Unlike most scary films that start terrifyingly well before descending into a ridiculous sequence of violence and gore, 'The Others' sticks to its gripping and tense atmosphere the whole way. It is based on a frail woman named Grace (Nicole Kidman) who is coping on her own with her two children who have a severe allergy to light. This makes the film even creepier as it plays around with candlelight and darkness. Grace's husband (Christopher Eccleston) is fighting in world war two at this time and her many servants have mysteriously disappeared in the night which leaves the insecure woman to teach and look after her children by herself. Three new mysterious servants arrive at the house, but what Grace doesn't know is what they are hiding from her. Her daughter, Anne, tells her of seeing people, whom she calls the intruders, in the house. Her mother refuses to believe this at first but soon finds herself amongst whispering voices, pianos playing by themselves, and doors closing and opening on their own. She encounters one terrifying incident with her daughter which will leave you either screaming or clinging on to whoever's beside you. The film keeps viewers very scared until its shocking twist at the end. This is one of the few films that survives without a single drop of blood, the horror is purely psychological and rather destressing to certain exctent. Nicole Kidman shows her real talent, forcing the viewers to endure the terror with her. Everyone must see this masterpiece if they wish to see Nicole Kidman at her best and a disturbingly excellent storyline.

To put things frankly, the others is one of the most though provoking films, not just from the horror genre that has come about recently. It is a great movie when looked at from all angles providing a great storyline accompanied perfectly with superb acting performences all around.
It is good to see a horror film these days that doesn't rely on blood and guts to scare it's audience and 'The Others' definately falls under the catagory of films which frighten due to the acting, atmosphere and generally spooky occurences.
The film is set in Jersey towards the end of the second world war in what is most certainly a perfect setting for any horror movie, a large, isolated mansion surrounded by thick masses of fog. The movie is made very dark and atmospheric explained by mother Grace Stewart (Nicole Kidman)'s children having an allergic reaction to any forms of bright light therefore resulting in the permanent closure of all gaps with a potential entrance of sunlight making everything extremely dark and creepy and very good circumstances for what is to come.
The film directs you into asking questions early on in the plot with mysterious happenings and appearences in which people are not as such damaged physically but mentally whilst provided only terror of a psychologically factor.
Nicole Kidman performs superbly like she never has in the past, playing her role perfectly allowing the audience to completely understand her situation and personality, you easily notice the development of her mental state and at times she actually seems quite a creepy character. Both children performed amazingly well despite the obvious experience disadvantage because of their ages.
