Set during the Spanish Civil War, this atmospheric ghost story finds a young boy sent to an isolated orphanage where he must deal with hunger, school bullies, the specter of war and the understandably upset ghost of a murdered orphan. Director Guillermo del Toro (Cronos, Mimic) ladles on the old-fashioned chills, creating a top-notch horror flick along the lines of The Sixth Sense and The Others. In Spanish with English subtitles.
