Amenabar's 'The Others' still stands as a solid horror outing and provided star Nicole Kidman a chance to shine in a subdued but affecting part. The novelty of the film's 'surprise' was still able to catch a new viewer I watched with completely off guard.
I remember watching this more than a decade ago and getting a bit scared and totally blown away by the final twist. Re-watching it a couple of days ago was not scary, but it made me notice and appreciate all the clues hidden throughout the film. It hasn't aged at all. Kidman is better than ever and the supporting cast seems very well chosen. Splendid mood and visuals.
The atmosphere of this creepy ghost film is absolutely amazing and Nicole Kidman's performance is incredible. I loved that this was a throwback to gothic horror and the elements used to scare are very old fashioned. I also didn't see the ending coming in anyway what-so-ever, and even though the ending was great, it was really the rest of the film that got to me. So creepy, visually stunning and entertaining.
What a gorgeous, elegant and effective little gem. "The Others" stands out in a decade where Guillemero Del Toro's CGI-heavy creature flicks were the heavy hitting horror films as a somber, brooding, atmospheric chiller that understands it's what we DON'T see that is the most terrifying. An astounding performance from Nicole Kidman, easily her best, is as compelling as the slow burning tension of the tale.
