The Orphanage – Review

The Orphanage is a new movie that has gotten a lot of press for being produced by Guillermo del Toro after his success with Pan’s Labyrinth. The movie is directed by J.A. Bayona and he looks like someone we should be watching out for in the future.

I will avoid giving away as much plot as I can, since finding out about this story is part of what makes this movie fun and I carefully avoided hearing anything substantive about the story before seeing the film and was rewarded greatly for that decision.

Let me just say that this movie was truly scary, there were no fake scary moments where they used music and quick camera moves just to make the audience jump and no scenes of torture porn, which does not make a movie scary. I really appreciate seeing a film that is still able to scare the living daylights out of me sometimes.

Also, I have to say, this movie’s ending gave me a real Hillary Clinton moment, I teared up and it almost made me cry. This was the only part of the film that really even reminded me that del Toro had a hand in this film.

I saw this film in a PACKED theater and there was one scene which scared one woman so badly that her scream made the ENTIRE rest of the audience jump from their seat! It was great! If you like creepy, scary movies, you should definitely find a theater and see this movie.
