The Others

4

Last year's sleeper hit was a personal triumph for Nicole Kidman, who bounced back after her divorce from Tom Cruise to top charts on both sides of the Atlantic - ironically in a film her ex-husband co-produced.

Kidman is terrific as the brittle mother of two daylight-phobic children, her anxiety spiralling out of control when she comes to believe her creaky Gothic mansion on Jersey is haunted. But kudos should also go to young helmer Alejandro Amenábar (Open Your Eyes), who eschews gimmicks in favour of old-fashioned chills - and racks up the tension to buttock-clenching levels.
