      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Deeply unnerving and surprisingly poignant, The Orphanage is an atmospheric, beautifully crafted haunted house horror film that earns scares with a minimum of blood.

      Tasha Robinson Polygon A skillfully made heartbreaker. Oct 20, 2021 Full Review Katey Rich CinemaBlend Though The Orphanage sticks fairly closely to a genre fomat, and the plot twists become a little predictable, the film packs surprises all the way to the end. Oct 14, 2014 Full Review Eric Kohn New York Press Let the anticipation of Bayona's next move begin. Oct 14, 2014 Full Review Elisa Guimarães Collider The Orphanage wouldn't work without its sense of childlike wonder. Jan 29, 2024 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Bayona approaches his story with patience and dread, reminding us why suspense relies on what we don’t see, the possibility, as opposed to immediately pulling the curtain back on blood and gore. Rated: 3/4 Jan 21, 2024 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A deeply absorbing and heavily atmospheric yarn that offers several noteworthy plot spins. Rated: 3.5/4 Nov 8, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      melissa c Una vez más, Guillermo del Toro demostrando que es el mejor director de cine, excelente película y un plot twist que deja invita a reflexionar cuánto seríamos capaces de perder por alguien que amamos Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/27/24 Full Review Anastasia Z One of the best horror movies! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/04/24 Full Review Rosie E Watching it 1st time as a teenager I was having my giggle here and there, later on I looked at it differently and it was kind of sad. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Eerie and really effective. Loved it Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/29/23 Full Review Wolfgang G Das Waisenhaus ist ein Horror/Drama Film von Juan Antonio Bayona. Das Drehbuch schrieb Sergio G. Sánchez dazu… Eine Frau kehrt mit ihrer Familie in das Haus ihrer Kindheit zurück, dass früher ein Heim für verwaiste und behinderte Kinder war… Die Geschichte erzählt eine Spukgeschichte, die von Juan Antonio Bayona in seinem eigenen Stil inszeniert ist, und von seiner ästhetischen Kohärenz überzeugt. Sei es in den überzeugenden Soundeffekten, in der perfekten Kamera Führungen oder in den präzisen Schnitt Frequenzen… Das Waisenhaus ist ein sehenswerter Film aus Spanien und ist ein kleines Juwel, das auf sparsamen Horror setzt… absolut sehenswert. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/06/23 Full Review Cyns Corner OOOF!! This one hurt ... :'( Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
