The Orphanage (2007)

In Theatre : December 28, 2007
Director(s): Juan Antonio Bayona

Laura spent the happiest years of her childhood growing up in an orphanage by the seaside, cared for by the staff and fellow orphans whom she loved as brothers and sisters. Now, thirty years later, she returns with her husband Carlos and Simon, their 7-year-old son, with a dream of restoring and reopening the long abandoned orphanage as a home for disabled children.

The new home and mysterious surroundings awaken Simon's imagination, and the boy starts to spin a web of fantastic tales and not-so-innocent games... a troubling web that begins to disturb Laura, drawing her into the child's strange universe which resonates with echoes of long-forgotten, deeply troubling memories of her own childhood. As the opening day draws near, tension builds within the family. Carlos remains sceptical, believing that Simon is making everything up in a desperate bid for attention. But Laura slowly becomes convinced that something long-hidden and terrible is lurking in the old house, something waiting to emerge and inflict appalling damage on her family

The Orphanage aka El Orfanato Review by BlackTequi...

Mixed reviews so far and this is my opinion. The Orphanage is not straight out horror but more intelligent and deeper involved. If you are looking for the atypical ghost story it might disappoint, this has an artistic vi...
The Orphanage Review by deadhorse13

Any film associated with Spanish director Guillermo Del Toro is immediately going to fall under my radar. The unique artisan beautifully constructs his fairy tales with a sense of undeniable style and vision. He only ser...

I am going to tell you something I wish I had read here before watching The Orphanage.  It might make you cry.  If you are a girl (literal or emotional), you probably will cry.  For me, this is reason enou...
The Orphanage (2007) Review by the5thdroog

After seeing clips from this movie and the creepy little kid in the mask, I was looking forward to this movie. Then when I realized Guillermo Del Toro put his name on it, the waiting became that much more grueling. ...
El Orfanato (The Orphanage) Review by Dirigible

I had such high hopes going into this film. Del Toro's name attached to it was huge. The creepy little kid in the burlap sack mask was another huge selling point. This movie had plenty of elements to it that made it a so...

The Orphanage Review by Gardenofstone10

This is, by far, one of the best horror/thriller movies I have seen in a long time. A lot of people are skeptical about this movie as it is in Spanish, but that isn't a problem in this type of movie because actions a...
