Movie 3 of 2009: The Orphanage

Movie Description:

The former orphan Laura raises her adopted son Simón with her husband
Carlos in an old house and former orphanage where she was raised. Simón
is HIV positive and tells Laura that he has five invisible friends, and
she believes they are fruit of his imagination. Laura decides to reopen
an orphanage for handicapped children in the location and during the
opening party, Simón calls her to show the little cabin of his friend
Tomás. The busy Laura does not gives much attention to her son; then
she sees a mysterious masked boy and Simón vanishes. Laura feels the
presence of other persons in the house and months later, the desperate
Laura invites a team of parapsychologists to try to unravel the mystery.

My Opinion:

I really, really liked this movie!!! I didn't really find it scary, but it definitly was extremely intense and deep. I could see where some people could find some creep factors to it though and some people that don't handle horror movies well might find it scary as well. I highly recommend this movie though. It is in Spanish so you have to read subtitles throughout, but definitely not a huge deal IMO. Check it out!
