The Turn of the Screw [DVD] [1974]

Release Date:08/27/2002
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.

    The Turn of the Screw
    Lynn Redgrave stars in this eerie TV adaptation of Henry James' 1898 gothic novelette. Hired as governess to a pair of troublesome English orphans (Jasper Jacob and Eva Griffith), Miss Cubberly finds herself in some very strange surroundings. Even stranger is the behavior of the children, leading Miss Cubberly to the inescapable conclusion that her charges have been possessed by unholy spirits. An earlier and better-known version of The Turn of the Screw was filmed in 1961 under the title The Innocents. The Turn of the Screw was first telecast in two parts -- on April 15 and 16, 1974 -- as part of ABC's Wide World Mystery anthology. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
