Spanish filmmaker Alejandro Amenabar's first English-language production is a creepy period ghost story that continues in the vein of his earlier art house hit Open Your Eyes (1997). Nicole Kidman stars as Grace, a devoutly religious mother of two ailing children who has moved with her family to a mansion on the English coast while awaiting her husband's return from World War II, though he has been declared missing. Their children, Anne (Alakina Mann) and Nicholas (James Bentley), both suffer from a rare photosensitivity disease that renders them extremely vulnerable to sunlight, prompting Grace's rule of having only one door open in the house at a time. When Anne begins claiming to see ghosts, Grace at first believes her newly arrived family of eccentric servants to be responsible, but chilling events and visions soon lead her to believe that something supernatural is indeed going on. The Others was released only a few months prior to Vanilla Sky (2001), the American remake of Alejandro's Open Your Eyes (1997), ironically starring Kidman's then-estranged husband Tom Cruise.

This is the only Nicole Kidman movie that i truly liked. Great ending and clever story.

I was really looking foward to this movie but when I finally viewed it, the experience of it just fell flat. I didn't like the story much and the plot, although original, is not seamless so viewers don't have much of an opportunity to figure things out for themselves. There was no scarefest at all- no entertainment so like I wrote before, this was very flat. I personally didn't think Kidman was that good in the film-I have liked her work in other films better than this one. Worst point...the viewer doesn't get a chance to participate in the experience-no imagining, no pondering Best point...solid acting for the most part by the girl who played the daughter and also the actress who played the housekeeper.

i think i watched this movie first when i six, and i didn't understand it, and my 9 cuz had to explain it with gum balls i still remember she had white gum balls in one hand and pink in the other &quot See the white gum ball were the people you thought were alive, but the pink gumball were the really ones alive&quot i laugh everytime. But it is a best movie yah gotta see. Also has anyone saw that Nicole Kidman seems to play a evil mother roll fairly GREAT! like the others and the golden compass...just me sayin'.

This is an excellent movie to watch if you enjoy suspenseful movies but not necessarily looking for the kind of horror movies with weird and fancy creatures attacking people. The movie relies on excellent performance by all characters rather than on special effects. There are scary scenes in the movie but they are limited. What makes it worth watching is the suspense that doesn't dissolve until the end when you come across something totally unexpected.

It was entertaining. A good plot, and very suspenceful. And Nicole Kidman was perfect for the part as the mother. But to put it in short words, A Bore. It's slow paced, and not at all scary. But it is something good to watch if you just want to watch something suspenceful, and interesting. I give it 3 stars.

I loved The Others. Nicole Kidman is an awesome actress. This will one day be a classic film!!

The subtle use of suspense balanced with moments of terror makes the use of violence unnecessary. So many movies are just gory, ''shoot 'em up'' action flicks,but this movie is flawless, classy, and thrilling!

I love suspenseful movies with a twist.It's hard to find a good ghost story that lives up to it's name, until ''The Others''. It starts off slow but you find yourself trying to piece the whole story together,finally realizing your way of thinking wasn't quite accurate. A wonderful, unique ending. I plan to buy it when it comes out to video.

**SPOILER BEGINS** Very good movie with excellent acting and an interesting premise: a haunted house story from the perspective of ghosts who think they are still alive. No, I didn't guess the ending, (well, I thought of it, along with about a dozen other ideas, most of which I thought were more likely than this one) and I wasn't bothered by it being very similar to the ending in The Sixth Sense. By the way, did anyone else notice that at one point, when Victor is supposed to be talking to Anne, Anne's jaw is moving as if she is the one who is actually doing the talking? This threw me off bigtime. **SPOILER ENDS** As I mentioned before, this film has outstanding acting. I pretty much expected the quality of Nicole Kidman's and Fionnula Flanagan's performances, but the kids, Christopher Eccleston and Alakina Mann were a pleasant surprise. Some of their facial expressions were downright incredible. Don't expect non-stop horror out of this one; the scary moments are there, but you have to wait for them. I had a great time trying to figure out what was going on, pretty much treating this movie like a mystery, and the movie came through for me. If you haven't seen The Others yet, I strongly suggest you do.

I loved this movie and plan to buy it as soon as it becomes available on DVD. It's a very classy scary movie, relying more on what you don't see then on overdone visual effects. You will be on the edge of your seat until the last second!!

This movie starts out as a classic ghost story in a house where the characters begin to hear noises and have experiences with strange ghostly characters. The ending was the greatest twist in a movie. AND, I never saw it coming!

'the others' is about what the title says, there are other people living in the old mansion, ghosts? or not? i enjoyed this movie because the ending is shocking and surprising.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I saw this movie in the movie theatre and I was interested through out the ENTIRE movie. The ending of this movie was SO AMAZING that my husband and myself were both totally shocked by the way that this movie ended. I highly reccommend this movie to folks who like twist endings.

Yes, this is a good thriller. Since the house has to be dark, it adds an air of mystery. You don't know what's behind that curtain, or in that shadow. The only dissapointing part of this movie is that you can guess the ending before you see it. Well, I did.

HEY! This movie was great. Fantastic. Out-of-the-box [thinking &] thriller! This had me at the edge of my seat the whole way there, I mean, to the ending. Heck, I watched this when I was eight and I loved it ever since. This movie's premise is about Hollywood superstar Nicole Kidman and three kids living in a remote and isolated mansion in a war, waiting for their father [or, in Nicole's case, husband] to come home, when the staff of servants disappear, they hire strange, secondary helpers until they turn up. But then strange, ghost-like things start happening. Recommended to everyone eight and up!

brilliantly talented from brilliant actors, inc. Nicole Kidman, but like Orson Scott Card said (though he's a writer of Ender's Game), ''heartbreaking moment with no meaningful purpose.'' In other words, ghosts touch things by anything and get reflected by mirrors. rated this movie 7.8. 7.8!? Ha! No offense, but I don't know why most moviegoes (or I'd say critics) like ''powerfully'' art movies that don't sense a pointless story like I do (ex: Citizen Kane, American Beauty, 6th Sense, etc.). I'm neither a ghost, art, nor sci-fi movie fan. But here's my recommendation: want a good ghost movie, rent ''Ghost (1990)''. Want a good art, rent ''Fargo''. Want a good thrill, rent ''At Close Range''.

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME! Very cool plot, and a series of twists and turns that kept me guessing. Don't believe the bad reviews. This was a worthwhile film. Truthfully, I am rarely impressed with the genre of horror (and suspense), but this was an absolutely clever movie and I highly suggest it!

If you love suspense movies, you have to see “The Others”. Throughout the movie the suspense slowly heightens, which kept me on my toes during the entire movie. From the beginning, you can tell the “The Others” has everything a classic suspense story needs. Nicole Kidman plays a woman who is living alone in a desolate English mansion with her two ailing children while her husband is off at war. Without a man to help around the house, Kidman’s character “Grace” welcomes the help of three strangers who claim to have lived in the house years before. After the three strangers move in and begin their housework, Grace strange and eerie noises in the house. Grace believes these noises to be coming from ghosts in the house. But are these noises proof that the house is haunted or is Grace crazy? You’ll have to rent “The Others” or buy it to find out. Personally, I enjoyed the book for its suspense. The way the plotline developed, constantly changing my perceptions was incredible. This movie is one of the best suspense stories I have ever seen. It included everything that you expect to find in a great suspense movie, including, a woman living alone with her children, an old mansion, and creepy, inexplicable noises coming from the house. Despite having all the usual ingredients of a great suspense, the story takes a unique spin at the end, which really captivated me. I recommend renting this movie on a cool, dreary night when you can wrap up in a blanket and appreciate the suspense.
