    Will leave you haunted

    I loved this movie. You can definitely see Guillermo del Toro's influence, as the ambience is very similar to that of Pan's Labyrinth. What I loved about this movie was its ability to scare you with pure suspense and presence, without having to resort to typical gore and violence like so many current films. One of the best movies I've seen recently.

    One of the best at subtle chills, tension

    I also had seen this movie in January 2008 when it was in limited release and it is every bit as good as all the reviews. This movie is in a class that only a few I can think of, 1961's classic "The Innocents", the 1980 spooky "The Changeling" and reminds me somewhat of 2001's "The Others". A drama wrapped in ghost story with more than enough chills, its spanish subtitled but it never gets in the way. Beautifully filmed on the northers Spain coast, it will stay with you long after you leave the movie.

    still haunted

    I saw this movie in January when it was still in theaters, and it's still "with me". It was the kind of movie that made you jump in your seat (from true suspense, not blood and gore). It was beautiful, in every sense of the word. A true masterpiece.

    My favorite horror film

    Scary. Beautiful. Heart-felt. Heart-stopping. Everything you want in a horror film. My favorite.

    One of the Best

    Easily one of the best films I've seen in years. If you are into B-horror with violence and gore, this may be too tame for you. That said, the imagery is beautiful and dreamlike. The movie wraps up nicely in the last minutes, with some really unexpected surprises. Though one or two of them seem a little hokey, the overall conclusion is very very haunting. Just be sure I got all I could from it, I searched for message boards online reguarding the &quot clues&quot in the movie I may have missed, and that left me even more freaked out. One of those ones that you want to watch over again after you've seen the ending, to try to catch as much as you can along the way. I am quite shocked there were some negeative reviews on here (although, one of them was only because the movie was subtitled, so.... that one may be easily ignored).
