The Orphanage

I went to see the movie The Orphanage tonight.  It's a suspense/horror movie from Spain, produced by Guillermo del Toro who did Pan's Labyrinth.  I don't think I've ever seen a horror movie in theaters before--this was more psychological horror than blood and guts horror--and I was on the edge of my seat and creeped out for the entire thing.  

The only reason this is loosely relevant is that the opening credits of the film are shots of children's hands pulling away wallpaper to reveal the names of the actors, directors, etc.  It obviously reminded me of the wallpaper-pulling I had done recently, but there was such an eerie effect to it that I think it will be a while before I do any more.
