Critic Reviews of "The Innocents"Cath Clarke Time OutOctober 06, 2014
You can watch 'The Innocents' twice and walk away with different conclusions. Psychological horrors have imitated its ambiguous ending ever since. Few have pulled it off half as creepily.Variety Staff VarietySeptember 10, 2008
Based on Henry James' story Turn of the Screw this catches an eerie, spine-chilling mood right at the start and never lets up on its grim, evil theme.Dave Kehr Chicago ReaderSeptember 24, 2007
Too much Freud and too little thought.Michael Atkinson Village VoiceSeptember 24, 2007
Is it the finest, smartest, most visually savvy horror film ever made by a big studio?Bosley Crowther New York TimesMay 09, 2005
Sends some formidable chills down the spine.Kate Muir Times (UK)September 22, 2015
It creeps slowly up on the viewer: a drip-feed of fear fed by creaks, eerie children and shadowy demonic figures on the periphery of this world and the next.Walter Chaw Film Freak CentralDecember 29, 2014
Having Truman Capote adapt Henry James's The Turn of the Screw (two taxonomists of beasts in the jungle of the Id), is an act of genuine inspiration.Dennis Schwartz Ozus' World Movie ReviewsNovember 01, 2014
This classic ghost tale is based on Henry James' 1898 novella, The Turn of the Screw.James Kendrick Q Network Film DeskOctober 17, 2014
the beauty enhances the dread by intensifying our sense of how feeble even the most luminous of surfaces can be in hiding the horrors beneath, which is appropriate for a film awash in Freudian subtextTasha Robinson The DissolveOctober 06, 2014
Kerr's performance vibrates with complicated tension and vulnerability, as she communicates the internal life of a woman constantly at war with herself.Richard KnightOctober 02, 2014
That rare ghost story that fires on all cylinders: it's tremendously acted, sensationally photographed in deep-focus black and white, sumptuously produced and, best, genuinely frightening.
