The Innocents (12A)

Tickets from £5.40
One of the best ghost stories of all-time, presented as part of Falkirk Science Festival with an introduction by Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Strathclyde, Dr Stephen Kelly on the science behind why people believe in the paranormal and the scientific evidence for psychic ability.

This definitive version of Henry James's 1898 novella The Turn of the Screw stars Deborah Kerr as an overly imaginative young woman who takes a job as a governess, caring for two precocious children in a vast and shadowy Gothic mansion... Are they possessed? Or are they the subject of the twisted fantasies of their suggestible governess? This psychological horror leaves you disturbingly uncertain of whether to trust the evidence of your own eyes and unsure who exactly is innocent. A must-see British classic with spooky candle-lit cinematography by Oscar-winner Freddie Francis (The Elephant Man, The French Lieutenant's Woman), and writing credits including the legendary Truman Capote (Breakfast at Tiffany's) and John Mortimer (TV's Brideshead Revisited, Rumpole of the Bailey).

"Makes your blood run cold" 5 stars Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Dir. Jack Clayton / UK / 1961 / b&w / 1h 38m + introduction + Q&A
With: Deborah Kerr, Megs Jenkins, Michael Redgrave, Martin Stephens, Pamela Franklin
