Extremely tense, classical thriller

Going above and beyond the cheap, empty-headed trappings which plagu... read more

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

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.

But when it comes down to it, there's not alot of things that are really wrong with the film. It's engaging, the script is good as is the acting and the cinematography is absolutely gorgeous. There's a few really i” read more

"An orphanage-turned-family-household begins to show signs of a haunting after an adopted orphan dissappears, leaving his adopted mother on a quest that will result in either solving the mystery of her son's dissappearance, or lead her down a cryptic road to madness. A film that's so Guillermo-Del-Toroesque, that it comes off almost exactly like a Guillermo Del Toro film. And surprise, surprise, even though it was neither written or directed by Señor Del Toro, he did pick it up as producer (t"
