Del Torro's "Ophanage"

Very very very creepy. In the tradition of "The Others", and as good. Maybe better than Pan's Labrynth. Nothing gross or evil - just old fashion horror and a great yarn.

Very,very ,very creepy indeed. I personally think it is MUCH better than "The Others"-and not as good as "Pan's Labyrinth"-but a very solid, enjoyable, believable horror movie that ends up being much deeper and substantive than most american horror flicks! Definetely up there closer with "The Sixth Sense" -VERY original! A must see!

Just saw this over the last weekend. Agree with the Mayor and Yeshead. Extremely well done and original tale.
