FantasticFest is the largest genre film festival in the U.S., specializing in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and action movies from all around the world. Here's a list of some of our favorite movies at FantasticFest.
Directed by Raymond Rouleau,a man who had practical experience (he had directed Signoret and Montand in "Les Sorcières de Salem" ,Miller's classic) ,with a cast including Suzanne Flon as the lead and Robert Hossein and Marie -Christine Barrault supporting (but as ghosts,they don't have much to do),we could have expected an above average MTV film.It turns out to be only average ,and for a good reason:Jack Clayton's 1961 version "the innocents" was so haunting it became the definitive adaptation of "turn of the screw".With all his talent ,Suzanne Flon cannot match Deborah Kerr's brilliance and the color does not make up for the glittering black and white of the English movie. Au Contraire .Filming in color this story of darkness is a mistake.
