Following the deaths of their parents, Flora and Miles are left in the care of repressed governess Miss Jessel, and housekeeper Mrs Grose. But it is Peter Quint, the malevolent Irish servant, who truly rules the household; Miss Jessel, equally repulsed and fascinated by Quint, is drawn into a secret sadomasochistic affair with him, while Flora and Miles are increasingly in his thrall…

This one really seems to divide people but I really like it. Well worth checking out.

There's a fair few I've not seen - The Games, Chato's Land, Lawnman, Scream for Help, the Wicked Lady, Appointment with Death, Chorus od Disapproval. Pretty sure I've seen everything else though.
