In theaters today is the Spanish horror film, “The Orphanage.” From the mind of producer Guillermo del Toro (“Hellboy” and the brilliant “Pan’s Labyrinth”) comes a story of a woman who purchases the orphanage she grew up in to refurbish it only to discover that there are other dark forces at work.
Although the trailer looks like your garden variety thriller, something tells me that del Toro has some interesting tricks up his sleeve. I received an academy screener for this film and have not watched it yet, but there will be a review coming this weekend, for sure!
“The Orphanage” opens in theaters today.
Trailer grade: B
