Turn of the Screw, written by Henry James, follows a young governess and her two young charges. There are dark entities lurking in the estate the children call home. The spirits want to possess the children and claim their souls.

We can expect to see the premiere of Haunted, which serves as both an adaption of the novel and a reboot of the 1992 film Turn of the Screw, some time in 2017.
