The Turn of the Screw
Star_offStar_offStar_offStar_off 0.0 4.0

This movie was/ is absolute crap. I would not use the script of the movie to wipe my dogs behind. It is the sort of movie that if you watch more than once you are likely to projectile vomit. The ending is terrible, the middle is terrible, and the only thing that makes the beginning good is that there is still hope at that stage for the movie to improve, sadly this was/ is not the case. It is an exhausting movie to watch and i would not recommend that anybody watch it unless they were considering using it as a form of cruel, inhumane, and unusual torture. It makes you want to watch another movie to improve your watching experience and drown out the memory of it. The only good place for this movie is the bin.
