The Innocents

A few weeks ago, we watched a movie called The Innocents in our World Masterpieces class. It was filmed in 1961 in black and white and was the most disturbing movie I’ve seen in years.

The Innocents is about a British woman who accepts the job as a governess for two children. She moves in with them and things start to go awry.

I have yet to see Children of the Corn, but for me, this movie features the creepiest children ever recorded on film.

Flora, The Innocents

This is Flora. There always happens to be awesomely spooky music playing while she tilts her head and smiles. This usually signals some kind of ominous foreshadowing. She also sings a lot in this movie. To me, the sound of children singing might possibly be the worst thing in the world.

Miles, The Innocents

Yeah, that’s right.
