A prequel to 's THE INNOCENTS (based on Henry James' "The Turn of the Screw") before anyone coined the term "prequel," Michael Winner's THE NIGHTCOMERS is an intermittently interesting misfire that finds Marlon Brando just before his huge GODFATHER comeback (THE GODFATHER opened a month after THE NIGHTCOMERS)/5(). For years I'd been curious about The Nightcomers (), effectively a prequel to Henry James's The Turn of the Screw, which itself had been marvelously adapted into the film The Innocents ().. Having seen it, my curiosity has certainly been satiated, but like-minded readers might consider letting their own curiosity end with this review.

Two children, Flora and Miles have been recently orphaned and their indifferent uncle entrusts them to the care of housekeeper Mrs.

Grose as well as governess Miss Jessel.4/5(1). As it is a short book that is understandable, the focus is on crafting a tight thriller that keeps the pages turning and the reader engaged.

Praise for Nightcomers from Philip Pullman. 'Every tale shows the quality of the imagination, and the accuracy of the telling. What most impresses is the authority of Susan Price's voice: exact, rich or spare when necessary, able to evoke the Past without falsity, and the present without effort.' (The Guardian.).

Visually stunning in a transfer from the original film elements, The Nightcomers sketches a prequel to Henry James' classic Gothic novella The Turn of the Screw, with Brando in typically compelling form as the servant whose disturbing, magnetic presence exerts a 4/5(47).

Michael Winner’s The Nightcomers  is a prequel to James’ novella, and while it’s no classic, it does offer a capsule version of some attitudes prevalent at the time it was made, as well as a look at what Marlon Brando was doing one year before his career revival as.

Stephanie Beacham (born 28 February ) is an English television, radio, film and theatre actress. She is known for her television roles in the BBC drama Tenko (–82), the ITV drama Connie (), and for playing Sable Colby in the ABC soap operas The Colbys (–87) and Dynasty (, –89).

Her film appearances include Dracula A.D. (), Schizo () and Troop Beverly. Prequel to the Henry James classic "Turn of the Screw" about the events leading up to the deaths of Peter Quint and Ms.

Jessel, and the the slow. The Night-Comers is one of my favourite Eric Ambler books. Set in a fictional former Dutch East Indies colony it captures the post colonial mood with the tensions between the locals and their former colonial masters plus a local coup d’etat.

The main character, Steve Fraser, is a classic Ambler protagonist/5(42). Marlon Brando delivers a respectably creepy performance in the Michael Winner directed The Nightcomers -- a film inspired by the characters in Henry James' The Turn of the Screw.

On a British 57%. The failed concept of The Nightcomers is to tell the story of what happened before the ambiguous events of “The Turn of the Screw”, quite possibly the 5/. Sure, there was a sort of ret-con vibe to "The Nightcomers," as it was the show basically saying "Oh, yeah, all this happened too and it here's an ultimate weapon we never once hinted at before 9/In October it appeared in The Two Magics, a book published by Macmillan in New York City and Heinemann in London.

Classified as both gothic fiction and a ghost story, the novella focuses on a governess who, caring for two children at a remote estate.

The Nightcomers is lax and sloppy, over-using zoom lenses and arbitrary in its camera angles. The big manor house looks like what it is, a rented property that can only be seen from a couple of angles; dull day and night exterior establishing shots are Winner's only method for showing the passage of time.
