The Turn of the Screw by Jack Neary

The Turn of the Screw by Jack Neary

Isolated in a sprawling manor in 19th century England, a governess is hired to watch a precocious young brother and sister in this haunting adaptation of Henry James’ classic novella. Though the governess bonds with the children at first, she quickly begins to suspect something is wrong when she sees the grotesque figures of the former governess and caretaker of the manor — both a whom are supposedly deceased. Is she seeing actual ghosts, or merely figments of her imagination? Featuring for her life and sanity, the governess begins an investigation to find out what happened to her predecessors and who else knows of their presence.
