The Innocents -- 1961 Horror Film with Deborah Kerr

For a film in which nothing actually happens, no blood on the face, no gore, no claws ripping flesh, no obligatory public restroom scene, no fangs penetrating necks and no slasher or chainsaw wielder creating bloody mayhem, this film is probably the most chilling and seat-edge gripping you'll ever see. Too bad Hollywood can't make an elegant film like this today and probably never could -- it's British, filmed on location at the Gothic mansion of Sheffield Park in East Sussex, UK.
