An orphanage is haunted by the spirit of a boy killed during the bombings of the Spanish Civil War. As the ghost makes contact with a new arrival, the dark truth behind the boy's demise becomes clear. The director of Cronos and Pan''s Labyrinth brings both historical flavor and mythic resonance to this frightening story. "As subtly disturbing as The Haunting (1963) o r The Innocents (1961), Guillermo del Toro''s brooding ghost story is ri ch with psychological and political implications that never obscure its fundamental creepiness" (Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide/Cinebooks). In Guillermo del Toro---Mexico/Spain---2001---110 mins.
