31 Days of Halloween: The Others (2001)

My Day 25 pick for 31 Days of Halloween is a unique ghost story that would be great for those who don’t typically love horror: The Others. It’s creepy without being truly scary, and it has a fantastic ending!

The Others Poster

IMDB’s Description: “A woman who lives in a darkened old house with her two photosensitive children becomes convinced that her family home is haunted.”

This movie stars Nicole Kidman and is a fascinating ghost story. There’s so much about family and motherhood in this film, and Kidman does a great job at being the overbearing matriarch who still elicits sympathy. Like I mentioned earlier, this movie is worth watching just for the fantastic ending. It’s a really unique twist on the haunted house genre.
