"Sometimes seeing is not believing, it's the other way round..."

The Orphanage (a.k.a. El Orfanato) possesses a similar look and feel to other thrillers which originated from Latin American and Spain during the noughties, most noticeably Guillermo del Toro's The Devil's Backbone and Alejandro Amenabar's The Others. Going above and beyond the cheap, empty-headed trappings which plagu... read more

Overrated, But Good

“After being somewhat dissapointed with one of Guillemoro's other Spanish films, Pan's Labyrinth, I steered clear of this one for a while. But after enjoying some of his American endeavors I decided to give this one a try. And although it's certainly a good film, it's not a "MASTERPIECE!" as everyone claims it is.

Maybe it's just me, but this film just didn't satisfy me. It's not very original, as it borrows elements from a plethora of American films ranging from Friday The 13th to Poltergeist, and feels more like a thriller than a straight-up horror picture.
