The Orphanage

The Orphanage is Spanish horror movie. Basically a standard haunted house/ghost story. I found it engrossing, but not all that surprising. It was beautiful and well-acted, but a little cliched. Still, I liked it a lot.

It's about a woman who used to live in a small orphanage when she was a child and who moves back to the house as an adult. Her son, who is ill, and who is also adopted, becomes friends with ghosts in the house, and eventually he disappears. The rest of the movie is about finding him, and playing games with the ghost children... Like I said, kind of cliched, but really well done. I would even watch it again.
