There's something spooky afoot in a foreboding 19th-century English mansion in this atmospheric, gothic ghost story, adapted from The Turn of the Screw by novelist Henry James. Employed to take care of the two orphans living there, governess Miss Giddens becomes convinced that the house and grounds are haunted. As the initially angelic youngster's behaviour becomes increasingly strange, accompanied by unexplained apparitions, the governess begins to wonder whether events are tied to her predecessor's unfortunate fate. Are vengeful spirits trying to corrupt the children's innocence - or is her fear merely a sign of Miss Giddens' own insanity?

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
