La Orphanage

Okay, I know what you're thinking. When I saw the trailer I was like "This movie looks pretty bad." I'm a cynic about horror movies too, unlike my friends. So when they forced me to rent it one night at one of my sleepovers, I was preparing myself to waste another good 2 hours of my life because of them.

Oh yeah! Before I go on, I have to announce that the trailer is tricky. Actually the movie is in Spanish... Yep, it's a foreign film. I didn't just title this post in Spanish for fun. We didn't realize it until we saw the beginning sequence credits. Yeah, they were all in Spanish with Spanish names...

So as the movie progressed, I was thinking, "Eh. This isn't as torturous as I thought it would be. It's okay." Then the ending came and I was like, "Whoa. I think... I think I actually kinda... liked that movie!" (Yes, I actually did say it like that and yes, I remembered it word for word. Wanna fight about it?) So I guess I recommend this movie to anyone who likes scary movies. I'm just a little nervous that you won't like it, because you'll expect too much. Maybe I liked it, because I thought it was bad.. Who knows.

Haha. I'm sorry for the really unclear recommendation. Just go watch it, and if you didn't like it, I will allow you to comment unpleasant things under this post.

At least, tell us what the movie is about? I am guessing an orphan.

Tara, I asked you to go watch this movie and you refused because you were too scared. Remember?

I refuse to watch scary movies, especially ones about ghosts. The only exceptions are zombie movies and slasher movies. Those don't give me nightmares. Oh and Laura, you totally spelled "cinic" wrong. hehe. Sorry it's always funny when Laura spells something wrong.
