From the thematic point of view, it's perfectly natural that in a determined point in The Orphanage (El Orfanato), the classic Peter Pan is mentioned: since the film's own story is about kids who will never grow up, it becomes some kind of ghostly version of Peter Pan and it also fits on another genre that has films like The Innocents, The Others and The Devil's Backbone (El Espinazo del Diablo).<... read more

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.

"01.10. Blu-ray, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Juan Antonio Bayona Trying out this "31 horror movies in October" thingy, although I will probably fail it. Not a good start; I liked the psychic scene, but the rest was a clichéd, corny mess. "
