The Turn of the Screw is a gothic ghost story, described by Oscar Wilde as 'a most wonderful, lurid, poisonous little tale'.

When the governess begins to see ghostly apparitions roaming the grounds, she does everything she can to protect the children, but the situation soon spirals out of control.
