The Orphange

This is a killer Spanish made(w/subtitles) Horror/suspense/Thriller produced by the Mexican Director who did "Pan's Labyrinth"-0ne of my favs of last year(or was it 2006?),anyway-this is directed, writen, and coreographed by all Spanish newcomers, but Guermo's(sp?) influence is heavily felt throughout. It is now out on DVD. It's not quite as visually stunning as PL, but close. The acting is great, and yes the storyline is somewhat reminiscent of "Sixth Sense" and "The Others", and you can definitely see M.Night Shamaylan's influence on the director here. But its storyline is definitely unique enough, and there is as emotion and deepness here as was in The Sixth Sense. I absolutely loved the ending, but can thing of at least one other that would have probably been as good, but everything here does not ride on the ending. And this director is a master like M.Night at holding back on the gore, but still keeping you on the edge of you're seat the whole time. A MUST SEE! ****
