another del Toro....

Premiering December 28th, El Orfanato (The Orphanage) is only being produced by Del Toro but I'll be rushing to the theater nonetheless! A single mom decides to convert her childhood home into an orphanage, her son then acquires an "imaginary friend" who seems a little too solid, and screaming ensues. There's a great still of this really creepy kid/ghost/undead person/monster (SEE ABOVE) in a kinda horrifying burlap sack mask. It reminds me of some of the images I've seen for the new Joker in the upcoming Batman flick. (He'll forever be Jack Nicholson to me, though) Looks good, looks creepy, although it does bear a startling resemblance, in topic if not in time period, to El Espinazo del diablo so we'll see if any great differences pan out.

sweet dreams!
