Film Night: ​The Innocents (1961)

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 14th Dec 2017

Adapted from Henry James’ classic novella ‘The Turn of the Screw’, this atmospheric and stylish ghost film questions whether the inexplicable events in a remote gothic country house are supernatural, or how much is in the mind of the protagonist.

A governess takes charge of two children and suspects there is much more is going on beneath the innocent surface of their appearances. Is it otherworldly possession, or is one woman turning her paranoia and sexual repression into a fervid fantasy she forces on two innocent children?

Elegantly scripted and photographed, the film thrives on unsettling images and compositions designed to heighten our anxiety in different ways.

A forerunner of the evil child genre that would proliferate in the coming decade, its ambiguous ending has been imitated by psychological horrors ever since. Few have been as effective.

This event will be preceded by an introduction by Gareth Miles followed by the screening of the movie. Refreshments will be served!

Doors will open at 6:30 PM.

Cost: £10
