The Orphanage

Recommended Posts

Watched this recently with StillBored and was very pleased on the gamble of buying it new. Alan said it reminded him of "Pan's Labyrinth" in some ways, but I still havn't seen it yet. Very cool spookey/in a big house/scary kids sorta flick. Its originally in spanish, but for those to lazy to read subtitles I believe the dvd also has english dubbing, would strongly recommend if you like spooky movies.


Anyone else catch this?

The above videos are dead.



Saw this last night, and the trailer really doesn't do this film justice. I can't remember the last time I was genuinely scared for a character in a horror film, this one got me. I'm not sure if I was just in the right mindset for a good scare, but this film gave me chills.


Excellent but simple story, great acting with genuine scares, nice slow pace to allow for building of tension and a refreshing lack of cheap scares.


Highly recommended.
