Has anyone seen this Spanish horror film? Directed by Guillermo del Toro, it is stunning. A ghost story set in an orphanage. Yes, it is in Spanish, but come on subtitles don't bother you right? This director is awesome, he has done Mimic and Blade 2, but more importantly Cronos and this movie. An incredible horror director. This movie poetic and chilling and great to the very end.
Anyone else seen this?

I saw it, and while I did not think that it was particularly scary, I liked it. Visually, it was excellent, and the acting and characterizations were strong. del Toro did really well with his child actors, and it would have been interesting to see him helm the Harry Potter films.

Yeah, it wasn't so much a scary horror film, but a creepy kind of horror. Some of the visuals with the ghost were exceptional!
