I HIGHLY recommend this to horror fans or anybody looking for a good, moody scare. It's a great little mystery with some scenes that will absolutely unnerve you, like Tomas' debut *shudder*. Really looking forward to the DTS-MA track - God bless you Sony Computer Entertainment!
I just finished watching this film, and I too thought it was excellent. Like most, I was intrigued by Guillermo del Toro attaching his name to this project as a 'presenter'. I was also quite concerned that the viewing experience might wind up like a number of 'Quentin Tarantino Presents' I've seen. Fortunately that was not the case, and it would seem that del Toro takes his 'presenting' seriously.
As others have said, The Orphanage is a very well done, thoughtful 'horror' movie, which is hard to find now-a-days. For those of you that miss them, like I do, I highly recommend you give The Orphanage a try.
I can't seem to find this in Canada yet so I just placed my order from amazon. Can't wait to get this film as I love a well done horror film, of which there seems to be not many.
Thanks for the review.
Weren't the comparisons to Del Toro's ghost story The Devil's Backbone?
Thanks for the great review!
loved this movie.
No, it was commonly referred to as "this year's PAN'S LABRINTH"...
Weird. Oh well!
To be clear, the only audio track is spanish DTS?
Yup - Like your recent Golden Compass - the only audio on the HD release was a top-notch one, but one that not everyone will get to experience the full benefit of. (The Orphanage comes with 'Spanish DTS HD Lossless Master Audio 7.1 Surround')
This was a very well done movie. I'm glad I picked it up.
If you liked this as much as I did then another Spanish film coming your way later this year you might want to check out is [REC]
