LOG: The Orphanage

Del Toro light. But as a spooky-house/weirdo kid movie, this is quite nice.

There is a long and fairly glorious tradition of A list directors producing B grade horror movies, good enough to hold your interest, shake you up a little, and that's about it. I'm thinking of Spielberg (Twilight Zone, Poltergeist) or Zemeckis (Tales From the Crypt, The Frighteners.) And far as throwaway horror movies go, I'll take something like this over yet another J-horror rehash any day.

Just one question, though.. Wasn't The Others (also by a Spanish director) exactly the same movie??
