THE INNOCENTS has two creepy kids starring in it, along with the excellent Deborah Kerr. It's a British film - I wouldn't call it full-blown horror. I'd call it horror light. That doesn't mean it doesn't have it's creepy moments - it does. But it's not going to scare or make anyone from today keep the light's on while going upstairs to bed. If weird little British kids, talking and acting like brats gives you the willies, this one might work for you. It's a subtle piece - meant to be watched on a rainy Sunday afternoon while you're going though the Sunday paper (on your laptop, of course).
THE OTHERS, a much more recent film starring Nicole Kidman, is a real winner of a ghost story. Consider it an updated version of THE INNOCENTS. Now, I'm not talking about the plot - there is no commonality there. It's the setting; the mood. Updated for today's audiences - the scares and weirdness factor are amped up. I liked it much more than The Innocents. The feeling that things are off is palpable - and the film whizzes by super quick. If you haven't seen it, please do. I don't give out recommendations too, too much, but this is one I always hope people will seek out. Good shit.
