Saturday, June 3 will be the last day to watch a movie on Netflix that has been able to trample its year. It won 7 Goya awards, was a box office success and the passage of time favored it to such an extent that it can now be said to be a classic of 21st century horror cinema.

The film, which is backed by very important names such as Guillermo del Toro and Juan Antonio Baionawill be a “victim” of the constant turnover that exists in the ranks of the red “N”.

The former, who was its producer, won the Oscar for The Shape of Water and has to his credit several titles recognized by all viewers: The Devil’s Backbone, Pan’s Labyrinth, Cronos.

The orphanage tells the story of Laura (Belén Rueda), the director of a dismal home for disabled children, and her little son, whose strange actions make her suspect that the house where she works holds a secret.

The repercussion of El orfanato in festivals was very relevant in 2007 – its debut year – and in early 2008. It won 7 Goya Awards, was selected at the Sitges Film Festival and was nominated for the Critic’s Choice Awards, among other accolades.

Bayona, who had a long career as a music video director at the time of The Orphanage’s release, based it on a short film by his compatriot Sergio G. Sanchez of the year 2000 titled 7337.

Belén Rueda is the protagonist.
