    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Only some bumpy, arid passages in the script keep The Others out of the master class occupied by the likes of "The Sixth Sense" and, my favorite, 1961's "The Innocents." show more

    Wesley Morris San Francisco Chronicle

    The Others is great as a collection of acknowledgments, but a ghost story made of a bunch of ghoulish thank-yous isn't that haunting. show more

    The most sophisticated and satisfying ghost story on film since "The Sixth Sense." show more

    Mark Caro Chicago Tribune

    A classic haunted-house story enshrouded in fog and steeped in portentous atmosphere. It gives you a case of the creeps oh-so slowly, then hits you with a clever, mind-warping way of saying, "Boo!" show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    In drawing out his effects, Amenabar is a little too confident that style can substitute for substance. As our suspense was supposed to be building, our impatience was outstripping it. show more
