"The Innocents" is one of those films that prove subtlety and
imagination can be ten times more terrifying than loud noises or things
that go bump in the night. There are no raging spirits or escaped
madmen here. Nor will you find that stock of today's second rate horror
films -- the creature that embodies evil and finds amazingly obscure
ways in which to slaughter naughty teenagers. No, this movie scars
one's psyche with darkness and silence and possibility, all mingled
with its refusal to give the audience an easy answer at the end.
Based on Henry James' novella, "The Turn Of The Screw," the story is
deceptively simple. An inexperienced governess is hired to care for two
orphaned children in an isolated British manor and slowly comes to
believe the ghosts of the previous governess and her brutish lover are
trying to possess the children's souls. Being a decent woman "who loves
children," she fights back the only way she can -- by confronting the
evil head on. But the question is, does the evil truly exist...or is it
all in her own mind?
As told by James, the novella is a startling ghost story, without
question. He adds his usual psychological insights to the characters,
but never do you doubt the ghosts exist. The defining moment comes when
Miss Giddens sees Quint's face in a dark window then later finds a
locket bearing his portrait and comes to her realization, "Oh, he's a
ghost!" But in the movie, Truman Capote and William Archibald reverse
this sequence -- she finds the locket first and THEN sees the man's
face in the window -- and all simple explanations go out the door.
Is Miss Giddens imagining things? Has she become overwhelmed by the
responsibility of raising two precocious children without any sort of
support from their selfish uncle? Is she merely sexually repressed and
immature enough to transfer her crush on the uncle to a boy not even
into puberty yet? And what of Flora, Miles' sister? If this is merely
sexual repression on Miss Giddens' part, then why does she drag a
little girl into the morass? Throughout the film, Miss Giddens offers
evidence of her concerns -- a letter received from Miles' schoolmaster
that she cannot fully share with Mrs. Grose because the woman cannot
read; her awareness that the two innocents in her charge have a far
more advanced knowledge of life than children that age normally would;
stories told by Mrs. Grose about Miss Jessel and Quint and how they
treated the children. So could it be the spirits of two miserable
adults have come back to reclaim life in the persons of Miles and
Flora? It could go either way.
There is not one wrong moment in this movie. Not one. The first time I
saw it was in New York City on a double bill with "The Haunting"
(1963), a "things that go bump in the night" kind of movie. The
audience and I howled through that one, it was so much silly fun. And
we chuckled through the first ten minutes of "The Innocents"
(especially when Mrs. Grose tells Miss Giddens, "I'm SO glad you're
here," with a little quiver in her voice), but by the end of that film
(and I use the word "film" deliberately), the entire theater was dead
silent. Any film that can shut up a room full of rowdy New Yorkers has
got to be damned good.
So...is "The Innocents" a ghost story or psychological study? Who can
say? And to be honest, who cares? It is, at the very least, a damned
good movie...and at the very best, a horror story that makes "The
Shining," "Rosemary's Baby," "The Others" and even "Psycho" (a movie I
love) look like the works of children. That this film is not available
on DVD is a travesty.
