As a standard in some of the greatest period-set chillers, including The Others (2001) and the Spanish classic El Orfanato (The Orphanage/2007), Lenny Abrahamson’s The Little Stranger relies on a third act reveal to ramp up the chills.While not being an outright horror or chiller The Little Stranger works best as a solid drama and a faithful rendering of Sarah Waters novel.
