“A ghost story that tells the tale of an apparition appearing to a child always lends the tale a certain ‘turn of the screw.’ But if one child lends the tale one turn, what then can be said of two children?”
Based on Henry James novella of the same name, the story concerns a young Governess who finds herself taking charge of two children in the beautiful manor of Bly. Not willing to disappoint the children’s charming Uncle, she agrees to his one condition, that he must never contact her.
When Miles, the young nephew, is expelled from school without an explanation she finds herself dealing with horrors the Master concealed from her alone. For starters, what is Mrs. Grose, the house-keeper trying to keep secret? Who is the strange ghostly figure that haunts the Manor grounds? And what is it about Miles that strikes her as….evil?
