32 Days of Halloween XV, Day 16: The Innocents (1961)!

First up, have some quality time with Roddy McDowall. He’s reading Lovecraft’s “The Hound.” Peter Vincent has a fantastic voice, so a splendid time is guaranteed for all.

Next, let’s remain across the pond with an episode of Roald Dahl’s Tales of the Unexpected. It’s from 1979, and in case you’re unfamiliar with the show, I must tell you the story is introduced by the author himself. I must also tell you that I have no goddamn clue why the opening credits look like James Bond opening credits, but with a strict budget of $4.99.

For your main entertainment tonight, here’s The Innocents from 1961. Widely regarded as the best adaptation of Henry James’ “The Turn of the Screw,” and also regarded by many as one of the best adaptations period. Enjoy.
