The Others
It all takes place in 1945 in a dreary isolated house on an island in the English Channel where Nicole and her two children and three servants are holed up while her husband is off fighting in WWII. To make things spookier, the children are so allergic to sunlight that black curtains must be drawn at all times and as they go from room to room, the door must always be locked before the next one is opened. Naturally the house is surrpounded by fog, the phone and the electricity are off, and there are voices, strange voices in the walls, laughing and crying, and the servants have turned out to be a most creepy bunch. What more do you need? Maybe a surprise twist. That they give you too. And screams; lots of screams. This film which will have you believing in ghosts, even if you never have before, has been stylishly directed by Spanish director Alejandro Amenabar, and although he's elicited a riveting performance from Nicole Kidman, when it's all over you you'll still be wondering who's dead and why.
