The Others

Nicole Kidman, the kids and the servants are all dead. The intruders are a family that moved in. Kidman killed her two kids out of madness and then shot herself. The servants died more than 50 years ago because of tuberculosis. The living family moves out because they are too scared to live in the house as a result of the haunting of these ghosts.

Continuity mistake: Before both kids go out by the window, Anne is painting, and the paint shows different patterns in each shot. (01:21:25)

Question: What is with Mrs. Mills and the rest of the people who come to help with the housework? I know they are dead, but are they evil or good; and what are they trying to do?

Answer: Evil and good do not come into it at all. They are simply dead people. As Mrs. Mills says it, sometimes the world of the living gets mixed up with the world of the dead. They simply died in that house and can't leave just like Grace and her children.
