El Orfanato (The Orphanage)

This is the first Spanish movie that I watch: El Orfanato (The Orphanage). It's labeled as 18PL at Malaysian cinemas.

Genre: Spanish horror/suspense/drama film. More...

Produced by Guillermo Del Toro, who also did Pan's Labyrinth and Hell Boy.

Tagline: Un cuento de amor. Una historia de terror (A tale of love. A story of horror)

This is really a subtly chilling movie based on an orphanage. The storyline is good with touches of traditional, not CGI scares such as bumping noises through walls and doors and children appearing silently. Most of the frights are subtle and chilling, sort of giving you some kind of "aftershocks" that linger for a few moments before they fade away. However, there are a few scenes that really made me JUMP from my seat, something I never do even when I watch K-, J-, or T-horror. In fact, most of the chills in The Orphanage are projected in a sad rather than morbid or gruesome way.

The ending of the movie brought tears though...

Watch it if you have time.

  2. oooo...

    I peminat setia horror movies. But not those gory gory one that shows sadistic chopping or torturing la...

    I hate sadism but am ok with movies with the right amount of horror flicks. Hahaha...

    Another great bone-chilling movie is "Tale of Two Sisters" (K-Horror). It's a sad, compelling, and moving horror/suspense movie. Same thing, the ending brought tears.

    *tsk tsk*
