  • The Turn of the Screw


    The Turn of the Screw is an ambiguous horror story about a nameless governess called to raise the young siblings Flora and Miles in the wake of their parents' death. At the country house of Bly it soon becomes clear that something is wrong either with the children, who exhibit frightening and eerie behavior, or with the governess herself who may suffer from madness. The story ends with the governess either saving or suffocating Miles after purportedly seeing a ghost.
