del Toro + Morales = Genius
Guillermo del Toro is one of my favorite directors/producers. His movies are so intoxicatingly stylish, every moment is candy for the eyes. On top of that, he is a master of suspense; I remember seeing The Orphanage for the first time - it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire movie. Los Ojos de Julia (Julia's Eyes) did the same. Great acting, great suspense, great cinematography, great everything. Rent and enjoy!
I don't really write reviews often but for some reason this movie compelled me to do so. This movie was very well shot, directed, and the actor were also great. It was suspenseful and eery. If you do not mind subtitles you should rent it. I would have actually bought it, if there was an option.
Another great horror film from Spain.
Belén Rueda is great in this movie!! Spain just keeps coming out with great horror movie directors plus backed by Guillermo Del Toro, you can't miss!! The only thing that bothers me about these is that you can't turn the subtitles off, I speak spanish and I find the subtitles distracting.
