The verities can still work in the right hands: a spooky house, spookier children, and attentive lighting and sound design. Its chief asset is that every character is immediately creepy, insane, or unreliable enough that it could go in any number of directions. The one it picks is so shaky only a killer twist would save it. And though the twist isn't killer, it's grounded nicely in the theme of spiritual uncertainty.
de mis favoritas. Fue una de mis primeras pelis de miedo, me impactó muchísimo, tiene un nivel tan alto que la mayoría de otras pelis del mismo género me saben a poco. Con "Los otros" no sólo disfrutas del suspenso, también, sorprende el apartado técnico de iluminación (sobretodo), el argumento y especialmente el reparto de actores.
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.
