Janne the Director’s Favorite Rare Movies Top 100 List #93: The Nightcomers (1971)
93. The Nightcomers (1971)
Tired of all the new prequels these day? Well, how about an old one? With Marlon Brando!
This is the prequel to the book “Turn of the Screw” or a bunch of shitty movies named “Turn of the Shrew” OR “The Innocents (1961) – the GREAT[-est?] ghost movie.
Here they skip genre by getting rid of the ghosts and instead you get to know what happened to the mysterious Peter Quint and learn how the kids turned out to be so freaking creepy.
It’s a wonderfully twisted tale were Marlon Brando teaches the nice innocent kids how to make frogs explode, bondage and the extremes of “you hurt the one you love”.
