Synopsis

A thriller about a troubled English governess hired to take charge of a pair of precocious but strangely disturbing orphans beset by demons. This tape-to-film adaptation of Henry James' 1898 novelette, shown in two parts originally, is occult director Dan Curtis' version of the horror perennial, frequently staged during TV's golden age of drama (Ingrid Bergman had made her American TV acting debut in the 1959 production) and filmed as "The Innocents" in 1961 with Deborah Kerr.
