Synopsis: A woman named Grace retires with her two children to a mansion placed on an island near the English Coast, towards the end of the Second World War, where she's waiting for her husband to come back from battle. The children have a disease which means they cannot be touched by direct sunlight without being hurt in some way. They will live alone there with oppressive, strange and almost religious rules (eg. "don't open a door until you've closed the previous"), until she needs to hire a group of servants for them. Their arrival will accidentally begin to break the rules with unexpected consequences.


My Review: I found that this movie was a little too hyped up for what it turned out to me. If you ask me, its just like a certain suspenseful blockbuster which was released 1999, to be left unnamed or else you'll pretty much know the entire movie. I'd have to say that if this certain movie in 1999 hadn't been released first, then The Others wouldn't have been so bad. 


The films was pretty much predictable, and not scary in the least. I'm one of those people who doesn't find any horror film spooky, but I got someone who's always freaked over horror films to watch this movie with me, my mother. She wasn't scared in the least. The trailers pretty much showed everything but the ending, there was nothing surprising or shocking about this film. 


I'm just glad I didn't pay the $5 to get to see it.
