A young and beautiful Governess is charged with the care of the angelic Flora and Miles. Soon, however, their companionship is marred by the appearance of two sinister and supernatural specters. These ghastly shadows are trying to possess the children, but only the Governess perceives this threat. In this house full of secrets and terror, it falls to her to drive out these phantoms. In this classic fireside story, you will be thrilled, and perhaps even filled with doubts, about what is real and what are mere manifestations from your own mind.
