The Turn of the Screw

Overview

Dan Curtis directs Lynn Redgrave in the adaptation of the classic Henry James ghost story The Turn of the Screw, which comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer. The English soundtrack is fine, but is less than spectacular. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence, making it difficult to recommend this disc to anyone who is not a genre enthusiast, or a hardcore fan of Henry James.
