THE ORPHANAGE is a perfect scary movie for adults and teens who like unsettling myseries without lots of blood, carnage, or violence. The movie is genuinely scary, but not in a disturbing or scarring way. It's more of a what's-behind-the-door type, edge-of-your-seat exhilaration. The plot revolves around a woman named Laura, who plans on re-opening the orphanage where she spent her childhood. Soon after she arrives with her husband and son, the son starts speaking to a strange "friend" and other apparitions. Laura believes her son's imaginary playmates are harmless until he disappears, and she must confront the restless spirits in the house to get him back. Violence in the movie is mild by current horror standards, but is the reason for the mild R rating. A woman shockingly and suddenly gets hit by a bus, and we briefly see a flash of her corpse with its jaw dislocated. A woman overdoses on pills to commit suicide. The "f" word is used once or twice in the film's subtitles. Other than that, the movie is devoid of graphic images or sexual content.
