  • Critic Reviews for The Nightcomers All Critics (4) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (1) | DVD (2) Michael Winner's rare, ambitious film tries to reimagine the prequel to Henry James' famous novel and its characters, offering Marlon Brando one of his most malevolent and disturbing roles; a good companion piece to The Innocents.

  • Westworld Review: Season 2, Episode 7 - "Les Écorchés" I also left the episode specifically wanting Vanessa to exact revenge on Evelyn, though it's clear that she has no knowledge about the true identity of her former, and current, witch tormentor.

  • "The Nightcomers" is a very dark tale about finding sexuality and losing innocence in a very twisted way. The performances of the cast are top-notch, but Marlon Brando leads the story with his usual competence.

  • 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.

  • 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 most famous ghost story ever written. This is exactly where the filmmakers should’ve stopped.
