    The Best TOTS Adaptation Ever

    With a superb cast, brilliant cinematography, and the English theatrical aplomb to pull it all off, this is easily the best cinematic adaptation of THE TURN OF THE SCREW--ever. The screenplay is by Truman Capote and William Archibald, based on WA's play of the same name. It's clutch-your-chest frightening in its intensity--a true masterpiece of the genre. Clayton's direction is white-knuckle incisive, especially in the scenes where Deborah Kerr questions her sanity, as well as in her scenes with the young and brilliant Martin Stephens as Miles. It's literate and terrifying work all around. Psychological thrillers/ghost stories don't get any better than this! The opening title sequence, with its creeping camerawork, environmental sounds, and randomly twittering birds, is especially unsettling and heightens one's senses and expectations in exactly the way the telling of an old-fashioned ghost story does. Brilliant.

    About the delivery system

    I'm truly disapointed about the delivery system for international shipments. I took over a month to get the DVD when in the B&N it is offered for 4-7 business days, and only by calling to complain you get the explanation about how much you have to way.

    This film is a must have for those who love the horror film genre. This version is without question the best adaption of Henry James' novel ever filmed.
