Grace, a devoutly religious mother, has moved with her family to a mansion on the English coast, awaiting her husband's return from the war. Her two children both suffer from a rare photosensitivity disease that renders them extremely vulnerable to sunlight, prompting the rule of having only one door open in the house at a time. When one of the children claims to see ghosts, Grace at first believes her newly-arrived family of eccentric servants to be responsible, but as events become stranger, she begins to wonder if something supernatural is indeed going on.

Good atmospheric movie but slow at times. Excellent ending that explains everything you see during the film.

Good movie - totally worth the watch. The acting by Kidman and the supports is all well-done. Great, unexpected twist toward the end which, to my knowledge, is also original to this movie. The movie is driven by tension and mystery. It's not the most amazing movie I've seen, but there are no major critiques I have (can't think of any), and it is 100% worth the time to watch. Very fun.

Waste of time; don't bother to watch this piece of junk--oh, redundant. This is complete crap starring little Nicole kidman who had her life sucked out by zombies and is just a walking husk of humanity.

Tense, eerie, Nicole Kidman bugs her eyes out. Yet somehow The Others doesn't add up to much. For one thing, it's too long for its slight story, which could have been told in a Twilight Zone episode. And it's padded out with pointless jump scares, which seem mandatory now in any horror film. You can do better.

Nicole Kidman ruined this one.

As a genre, horror refuses to stay dead (pun intended). Around the turn of the century, there were a handful of films that embodied some important trends in the genre: "The Blair Witch Project," "The Sixth Sense," and "The Ring." The first paved the way for the found footage films, the second reintroduce a more atmospheric, less bloody type of horror, while "The Ring" brought Asian horror to American audiences. "The Others," from 2011, is firmly in the "Sixth Sense" line of horror, as well as going back further to haunted house movies like "The Innocents" and "The Haunting." I don't always like Nicole Kidman, but she's good as the overprotective mother of two children, as is the actress who plays the house keeper who seems to have a secret. Christopher Eccleston, is sadly underused. It's slow and moody, but has some good scare moments and an effective ending. Also check out "The Devil's Backbone" and "The Orphanage." Tom Cruise produced this and it was the last project they worked on together. Director Alejandro Amenabar did the Spanish version of the film that would be remade as "Vanilla Sky." Starring Tom Cruise!

An excellent ghost suspense movie! Loved the twist at the end! Make a big bowl of popcorn and watch it.

Excellent. Scared me which is not easy to do because I watch a lot of these.
