About the Movie The turning
Based on the horror novel of the name “The Turn of the Screw” written by Henry James in 1898, there are many adaptations to this novel. Most of the adaptations were in the form of opera shows. But this is the first time, this will be adapted in the Hollywood movie version. Another interesting thing is that Steven Spielberg has been connected with this adaptation venture as executive producer.
Basically, this horror movie will be narrated on the perspectives of a governess appointed newly to govern two orphaned children Miles and Floria. Due to the sudden demise of their parents, the children were forced to stay with their uncle who is also not interested in taking their care. So he appoints a governess with strict instructions of no communications with him related to the children. But the governess starts finding some supernatural activity like the presence of spirits trying to possess the children’s body due to some unknown reason. Later it was revealed that the ghosts were the previous governess and another staff in that same mansion and they have a weakness in both the children.
Thus, the story will be revolving around the struggle of the new governess to save both the children from the hands of these evil spirits. But though she succeeds in saving Floria she became unable to save Miles from the ghosts. And in the end the ghosts disappear with the death of Miles. But the twist of the story remains on the truthfulness of this story. As in the end some of the questions remained unanswered as who killed the previous governess and the staff. And what is the reason behind the sudden death of Miles.
