Had been meaning to watch this FOREVER and finally did so last night.
Wow. Creepier than any movie this old has a right to be. Loved it.
Going to see this tonight at the Royal theater in West L.A.

Took the kids to see Disney Oceans
I haven't seen the prequel. I sort of want to out of curiosity, but I really wouldn't see it as part of the same world. The good thing about the story is that we really don't know what really happened before the governess arrived and that what helps make it creepy and ambiguous.
The Innocents is widely considered by far to be the best adaptation. I was surprised at how good it was because the story isn't really easy to film due to its ambiguity, but the film captures that wonderfully and has atmosphere in spades. The others that I have seen can't hold a candle to it.
