El orfanato

Film, 2007

The Orphanage was marketed completely appropriately; It’s a Guillermo del Toro film that’s not by Guillermo del Toro. It’s in the same vein, but not as good. Which isn’t to say that it isn’t good, or is completely devoid of it’s own personality, but it gives you a pretty good idea of what to expect. At best it has some very effective sequences, at worst it can be overwrought to the point of distracting sillyness. 3
