I mean it's much more than that and it is evident by the trailers (see below). Well today a video interview of director Bayona and writer Sergio Sanchez (who is also penning Del Toro's 3993) popped up over at IESB.net, and it's pretty cool to see these two first time filmmakers talk about their "baby". If you head over here you can watch it.
THE ORPHANAGE, or more appropriately EL ORFANATO, will be released tomorrow December 28 (as stated above) with a wide release on January 11th. The film has left its mark on the festival circuit, so it's definitely not one to miss.
