Possibly the best ghost story ever filmed, this adaptation of Henry James's novel 'The Turn of the Screw', offers spooky apparitions, demented religiosity, repressed sexuality, emergent sexuality, and incest in a manner that is funny, poignant, and unforgettably creepy. It is perhaps no wonder that Truman Capote was partly responsible for the screenplay (along with William Archibald, co-screenwriter of Alfred Hitchcock's 'I Confess'). Clayton's direction is full of incisive psychological touches immeasurably enhanced by Freddie Francis' sinister black-and-white cinematography. Deborah Kerr's masterful performance as the neurotically religious and, (surprise!), sexually repressed governess - who sees both sex and ghosts everywhere - remains one of the very best ever put on film.
