What a brilliant film. Very sad and a little creepy but brilliant, no more needs to be said :) 10/10

Beautifully sad, with bittersweet triumph. Guillermo del Toro is one of the most creative minds of our time. Definitely worth a watch.

A captivating movie. As it centers around the lives of young orphan boys, you immediately feel for them, seeing everything through their innocent view of the world, aside from the few adults, providing quite a different perspective. It starts with the question, "What is a ghost?", preparing you for what is to come. Brilliant imagery and visual effects . A wonderful film to lose yourself in, especially if you like to at all feel scared. Top marks from me!

Guillermo del Toro created a grand horror story that has a solid moral center. It is so different and creepy. He did "Pan's Labyrinth" and worked on "The Orphanage" for top class horror fans.

5/5 Watched Version 1 of this film. I really enjoyed this movie. Not only was there a great story but the acting was really good. Federico Luppi is an amazing actor. I would definitely recommend watching this movie.

A very sad ghost story- Guillermo is a master at weaving a tale. Love it that the one thing Jacinto sought and desired the most was what sealed his fate.

Wow. What a great movie! It's not the normal kind of horror but then again, Guillermo del Toro doesn't do 'normal' anyways. It's an awesome movie. Very moving. Would totally watch it again.

A cracking good ghost story with a unique atmosphere across the whole film and quirky, original and interesting characters that were still very believeable. Certain cultures seem to excel in certain themes regarding stories and there's something about the Spanish that makes them masters of darker themes - not just horror, but darker themes all around - they nearly always strike a chord with my tastes, anyway and this film is no exception.

Can't believe I missed this Del Toro movie. Watched it with the boyfriend last night. Wow. 10/10
