Spanish filmmaker Alejandro Amenabar's first English-language production is a creepy period ghost story that continues in the vein of his earlier art house hit Open Your Eyes (1997). Nicole Kidman stars as Grace, a devoutly religious mother of two ailing children who has moved with her family to a mansion on the English coast while awaiting her husband's return from World War II, though he has been declared missing. Their children, Anne (Alakina Mann) and Nicholas (James Bentley), both suffer from a rare photosensitivity disease that renders them extremely vulnerable to sunlight, prompting Grace's rule of having only one door open in the house at a time. When Anne begins claiming to see ghosts, Grace at first believes her newly arrived family of eccentric servants to be responsible, but chilling events and visions soon lead her to believe that something supernatural is indeed going on. The Others was released only a few months prior to Vanilla Sky (2001), the American remake of Alejandro's Open Your Eyes (1997), ironically starring Kidman's then-estranged husband Tom Cruise. ~ Karl Williams, All Movie Guide

Nice, creepy ghost story. by emdoub June 18, 2009 - 8:17 PM PDT
I haven't seen the original, but this version, with none of the jump-cuts and gore one expects from horror movies, delivers an interesting and creepy ghost story. There could have been better character development, but all in all, it was a good workmanlike job of storytelling on all sides, with an ending I didn't see coming by very much. It made for a pretty entertaining evening.

Innocents anyone? by EKarkoutly April 13, 2007 - 10:49 AM PDT

This movie is, to my eyes, a rip off of the 1961 film The Innocents, which is an adaptation of the Turn Of The Screw. The Innocents is much spookier and a better film all around.

It boggles my mind that people don't finish movies and then think they know enough to review them. Just because pacing is slow and quiet doesn't mean a film is boring. Not all movies need to be flashy MTV videos. The Others is one of my all-time favorite horror's definitely worth sitting through, and especially with this one, you need to sit through to the end before judging it.
