THRALL WORLD was suprised to learn of the following:

Actor-producer-director Larry Fessenden has signed on to helm “The Orphanage,” New Line’s remake of the Guillermo del Toro-produced Spanish-language horror movie.

Fessenden also has written the script with del Toro, who is producing the new film with Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson of Contrafilm.

The 2007 pic was directed by del Toro protege Juan Antonio Bayona and centered on a woman who, upon returning to the orphanage where she grew up, discovers that her son’s imaginary friend is the same person who terrorized her when she was a child.

‘EL ORFANATO’ is one of the best movies we have seen in the past couple of years and THRALL WORLD could not possibly recommend it more. A remake is completely unnecessary but I suppose the producers feel the story can reach a larger audience if in English (the original is in Spanish with subtitles). If you enjoyed Del Toro’s PAN’s LABRYINTHE you will most certainly be enlightened with the original Spanish version of ‘EL ORFANATO’.
