Del Toro-consulted thriller presented for your consideration.
The horror movie, which was produced by Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth), beat out Emilio Martinez-Lazaro's 13 Roses and Jose Luis Garci's Luz de domingo. The synopsis for The Orphanage, which reaches American screens December 28:
The Orphanage, presented by Oscar-Nominee Guillermo del Toro, centers on Laura (Belen Rueda from The Sea Inside) who purchases her beloved childhood orphanage with dreams of restoring and reopening the long abandoned facility as a place for disabled children.
Once there, Laura discovers that the new environment awakens her son's imagination, but the ongoing fantasy games he plays with an invisible friend quickly turn into something more disturbing. Upon seeing her family increasingly threatened by the strange occurrences in the house, Laura looks to a group of parapsychologists for help in unraveling the mystery that has taken over the place.
