El Orfanato


I can never decide how I should refer to foreign films. I mean, when I talk about this, I just call it "The Orphanage". But it's called "El Orfanato" in the actual movie. So I tend to just choose randomly and it turns out it's more fun to say "Orfanato".

I'm not wildly into the moody impressionistic ghost story genre, but I did like it. I enjoy horror movies where there's always a fairly plausible nonsupernatural explanation, because the implication there is that someone has gone completely bonko mad, which can be just as worrying. And there are a lot of pretty creepy shots, which is important in a movie like this.
