The Others


Spoiler Free Version:

A woman named Grace retires with her two children to a mansion on Jersey, towards the end of the Second World War, where she’s waiting for her husband to come back from battle. The children have a disease which means they cannot be touched by direct sunlight without being hurt in some way. They will live alone there with oppressive, strange and almost religious rules, until she needs to hire a group of servants for them. Their arrival will accidentally begin to break the rules with unexpected consequences.(Source: IMDB)

This is a top shelf ghost story. Wonderfully done, great cast. Mystery, suspense, and a twist ending that will blow you away. The dark and silent setting of this film adds to the unrest, and it is so refreshing to find a horror movie that doesn’t rely on jump scares and heavy CGI. In fact, I believe there was only one shot that required animation. I wish I could say more, but it would spoil the ending.. and trust me, you don’t want me to do that, this time.

Turn off the lights and curl up with a bowl of popcorn.. This is a must see!
