The Innocents (Dir: Jack Clayton, 1961, UK/US, Cert 12A, 100 mins) is a classic British supernatural gothic horror film, based on the Henry James ghost story novella The Turn of the Screw (1898).
Kwaidan (Masaki Kobayashi, 1965, 185 minutes) features dreamlike ghost tales adapted from Lafcadio Hearn’s collections of Japanese folk stories of the same name. This lavish, widescreen production drew extensively on director Kobayashi’s own training as a student of painting and fine arts. Toru Takemitsu’s innovative score compliments the extraordinary and beautiful visuals.
The film consists of four separate and unrelated stories. The Black Hair, Hoichi The Earless, In a Cup of Tea and The Woman of The Snow. We encourage you to stay and watch all four stories!
