JOHN LANDIS PRESENTS MONSTERS IN THE MOVIES
Double Feature!
THE INNOCENTS / THE HAUNTING

Don't miss two of the most beautiful and memorable supernatural spine-chillers ever made!

50th Anniversary!

THE INNOCENTS
1961, 20th Century Fox, 100 min, UK, Dir: Jack Clayton

Director Jack Clayton also directed British New Wave gems ROOM AT THE TOP and THE PUMPKIN EATER, but his most famous film remains this goosepimple-inducing, shuddery adaptation of Henry James’ classic ghost story, “Turn Of The Screw.” Deborah Kerr is a repressed governess who is convinced that the ghosts of the previous governess and the woman’s equally dead, cruel lover, Quint (Peter Wyngarde), haunt the mansion and grounds of her innocent young charges (Martin Stephens, Pamela Franklin). Reality, superstition and warped psychology collide in this riveting, brilliantly photographed jewel of a film (lensed by future horror director Freddie Francis).


THE HAUNTING
1963, Warner Bros., 112 min, USA, Dir: Robert Wise

"Silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone…" Paranormal researcher Richard Johnson leads a team of clairvoyants (Julie Harris, Claire Bloom) to determine if the notorious, bad karma-filled Hill House is truly haunted. What he doesn’t bargain for is intensely neurotic Harris developing an unhealthy sensitivity to the mansion’s evil-charged atmosphere. Based on Shirley Jackson’s novel The Haunting of Hill House, this is one of the all-time classics of the genre. In supernatural CinemaScope! With Russ Tamblyn.
