REVIEWS:





"The Innocents is likely to reel you in with its tale of ghostly
images and otherworldly happenings -- not to mention the
above-average cast as well. In the same grand 'old school'
tradition of spooky suspense-laden films like 'The Uninvited' (1944),
'The Spiral Staircase' (1946), and 'The Haunting' (1963) --
'The Innocents' works hard at keeping the viewer firmly on a bed of
pins and needles throughout its 100-minute duration. And,
in my mind, it succeeds admirably in that endeavor."

-- David Von Pein; October 2005







"Folks who have never seen a movie set in a scary old house, where the
doors creak, the wind howls around corners, ghosts pace the long, dark
halls and hideous, spectral faces appear in the windows at night, should
find themselves beautifully frightened and even intellectually aroused by
Jack Clayton's new picture, 'The Innocents'. For Mr. Clayton...has done a
fine job of infusing this drama with spooky atmosphere and a certain sense
of the weird and supernatural that should clobber the gullible. He has
used his camera so expertly that even shots of apparitions (or 'ghosts')
in the open air and broad daylight have a startling and chilling quality."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; December 26, 1961
