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

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

"1st of January, Blu-ray Positiivinen ylläri. Del Toron tuottama Orpokoti hyödyntää taidokkaasti yksilön sisäisiä pelkoja ja skitsofreniaa luodakseen yhden viime vuosikymmenen muistettavimmista kauhuelokuvista.
