Director Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water) never disappoints and this movie is one of his best. After losing his father, 10-year-old Carlos is left at the Santa Lucia School, an orphanage for the militia which serves as a backdrop to unfold this incredible and spooky narrative. Carlos new acquaintances like the steely headmistress, Carmen (the incredible Marisa Paredes) unravels with great mistery. Soon after his arrival, Carlos has a run-in with the violent caretaker, Jacinto. Gradually, Carlos uncovers the secrets of the school, including the youthful ghost that wanders the grounds.
