The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Nightcomers (1972)

Starring: Marlon Brando, Stephanie Beacham
Director: Michael Winner

A nanny and a caretaker for two wealthy children are having an affair and fail to notice the children's disturbing change of attitude.

My Take:
The movie is a prequel to the Henry James story "A Turn of the Screw". The kid's mimic the adult actions, take what they say literally, and devise a plan to keep their two mentors together forever. 
Great performances from the two leads in this offbeat and twisted tale. I found the children actors to be incredibly annoying though.

Rating: In the middle
