movie thoughts: The Orphanage

Having enjoyed both Hellboy and Pan’s Labirynth, I couldn’t not watch The Orphanage.  It has a dash of horror, mystery, thriller, and suspense all mixed together.  Many scenes were reminiscent of Spielberg’s Poltergeist.  Yes, I did spend a small portion of the movie with my hands near my eyes (just in case) but the scares come from sheer creepiness and not gross-out effects.

Honestly, there is so much to say about this movie, but if I say anything I’m afraid I might spoil it.  It has many subtle nuances, twists, and turns that make it work. 

Just see it.  Then we can talk.
