THE OTHERS

 

 

I think that every one of us has a thing about haunted houses and ghosts. I love movies like this because there's a sense of believability that taps into our most unknown fears that stories like this bring out.

There are no special effects, no knives, no blood, and no gore. This is a very dark and creepy story that lets your mind do most of the work.

With solid performances from the entire cast--a movie I should see twice to appreciate the full value. Just a good ghost story with a mind-blowing little twist at the end.

Albert Einstein once said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge." And nowhere has there been a better example as The Others--a psychological horror film that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

In a time of computerized special effects, it's refreshing to find that someone can still tell a ghost story the old-fashioned way, with shadows & fog, and things that go bump in the night.
Imagination can be a terrifying experience.

The Others is a psychological thriller.

The movie has a busy, creepy felling of a powerful force that seems to be on the loose throughout the spooky house.

I like the way the story slowly unfolds and lets our minds create the suspenseful question. What is it?

Only the ending with a twist can answer that!
