Comments:

The Others is on the short list of my favorite horror movies of all time. Nicole Kidman was great as Grace, a harried mother trying to keep her sanity. Her two children suffer from a rare disease which makes sunlight deadly to them. Thus, their house must be kept in darkness and all of the doors locked. Add to this the fact that Grace's husband Charles is away fighting for the British Empire in World War 2, the servants have run away, and the house is located on a nearly deserted island off the British coast, you soon realize that Grace's world is far from perfect. Things only get worse as strange new servants who seem to know more than they are telling arrive, and suddenly Grace's daughter begins seeing ghosts. This movie has an extremely interesting twist ending, and the atmosphere is very gothic and dark. Alakina Mann is also great as Grace's daughter Anne. She really freaked me out for some reason. This movie is a definite buy.
