Read the Review


A ghost story in the run up to Christmas, The Turn of the screw is an adaption of Henry James’ famous chiller about a young governess trying to save her two charges from possession by the two evil spirits that haunt a large country house. Convinced she has seen the ghosts of Quint and Miss Jessel, Bly’s former valet and governess, she struggles to persuade others she is telling the truth and begins to doubt her own sanity. Can she save Miles and Flora from destruction and damnation?
