Lady In A Crinoline Kicks Evils Ass
30 August 2002 | by (Leeds, England) – See all my reviews

Henry James' classic ghost story 'Turn of the Screw' has previously been the basis of other enjoyable films - the prequel 'The Nightcomers' starring Marlon Brando and Stephanie Beacham and black and white 1956 classic 'The Innocents' starring the peerless Deborah Kerr.

This is not a supernatural movie for lovers of hack and slash; it moves at the stately pace of a lady in full Victorian dress, but is still a powerful story about the confrontation between good and evil.

The story chronicles the fight of a young governess of the power of evil emanating from beyond the grave to corrupt her two young pupils. The evil concerned is understated and all the more powerful for that.

Valerie Bertinelli emulates Deborah Kerr in facing her eldrich adversaries with dignified gentility and her consequent vulnerability enhances appreciation of her courage; perhaps ultimately this is a movie about the spiritual power of women overcoming the crude, physical power of men. The subtext concerns the conflict between spirituality and materialism - much of the power of the corruption encountered stems from the strong sexuality and lust for physical gratification of the evil Peter Quint (The Nightcomers is blatant in portraying this dimension of the story and suffered critically as a result)

If your tastes in supernatural movies is for subtle horrors glimpsed rather than up front blood and rampage, you'll like this film
