The Others: Grace Stewart

When The Others came out in 2001, it was around the same time as The Sixth Sense when plot twist endings were having a moment in Horror. I’ll do my best to not spoil it for you, but it has been twenty-plus years already! If you haven’t seen The Others yet, do yourself a favor and go check it out. If you’re into the technical aspects of films, the lighting alone is worth your time for this one.

The only thing that moves here is the light, but it changes everything.” ~Grace Stewart

Spooky stuff starts happening around the house, but I try to keep the children calm by forcing them to read the bible and disregarding their commentary that they’ve seen intruders.
