A young governess is hired to look after an orphaned girl, but the return of the girl's problematic brother uncovers secrets from their past. A modern take on Henry James' novella "The Turn of the Screw."
A young woman quits her teaching job to be a private tutor (governess) for a wealthy young heiress who witnessed her parent's tragic death. Shortly after arriving, the girl's degenerate brother is sent home from his boarding school. The tutor has some strange, unexplainable experiences in the house and begins to suspect there is more to their story.
This is one of two adaptations of Henry James' novella "The Turn of the Screw" that will be released in 2020. The other is the second season of Netflix's "The Haunting of Hill House" series by Mike Flanagan, which will now be called "The Haunting of Bly Manor". Both adaptations are produced by Amblin Entertainment. See more »
The 1994 lesson book for Flora identifies February 28th as a Tuesday and March 1st as a Wednesday. In 1994, those dates were a Monday and Tuesday, respectively. See more »
I went to see this movie with very low expectations since horror films usually dont do well in January, like the grudge. And, of course, it didnt surprise me how horrible this movie is. The first 15 mins was ok, but after that this film went nowhere and the ending somehow ended abruptly in my opinion. Dont waste your money. If you really want to see it, wait till it comes out on redbox. But be warned, you will be bored of this film. Its not even scary. Safe to say, i wont be watching this movie any time soon.
