Has everyone forgotten the adaptation of Turn of the Screw starring Ingrid Bergman and filmed for television in 1959? It was shown in the USA and on BBC in Britain. Bergman was brilliant ,of course!and the two children were also excellent. I have forgotten who played Quint or any of the other parts and shall search for it. My point here is: don't assume the most recent adaptation of anything is the best. Usually it is not - for example Far from the Madding Crowd 1967 is 100% better than the recent version.

It is a great adaptation. It was the best of the two versions I haveseen. It is very simple to understand and truly well made with abeautiful setting. I highly recommend it if you like a good and scarytale. Surprised why the other ratings were so low. I watched it at 6a.m. in the morning, and it made my day. The actors are great. Theending was cool. The piano pieces in that movie were nice. The mostattractive thing about this movie is simply the setting. The scaryscenes were exciting and dark. I soundtrack is also great. It is asuspenseful movie which keeps you at the edge of your seat. I was veryexcited for the ending, and it did not disappoint me. I liked so muchthat I might read the book too. I think it would have been the bestChristmas present in 2009.
I hated the 20's costumes, this just NEEDS the fancy Victorian clothing! Also, automobiles? Stupid frame story? And using Voice Of The Legion, one of the worst horror tropes? No match to The Innocents - that was perfectly creepy and beautiful (Miles could have been prettier, but otherwise everything as it should be).
Here? Meh. Adding random new characters was unnecessary.
Music - can't even recall it. Go for the opera if you want the REAL music of this, also, Britten understood a lot more than this movie's director. It was not just about *possessing* children. It was more, at least in the case of Quint/Miles.
