*gulp*


so last night we watched the orphanage and i can honestly say that i have not been that scared in a long, long time. wait, check that - not really scared but more creeped out.
it is a spanish film by the same fellow who did pan's labyrinth . a couple who have an adopted son, move into this huge old house that was an orphanage where the woman herself lived as a child. i won't give anymore away, but let me just say this - children can have a HUGE creep factor!!! i was so tense watching this movie, i loved it! there are some bits of humor, and also some very touching moments in the film. (it's true, i actually cried a little at the end).
go rent this movie. it is sooooo good.

Is this out on DVD now? Dang! My husband really wants to see it and so do I, sort of, but I'm scared! I really don't like being scared! Really I don't!

oh yes....it's out! go for it! it's not like 'the shining' or anything. it's more like 'the others', just kinda creepy. it's beautifully shot too.
