MOVIES: The Orphanage (El Orfanato)

Anyone know why this movie hasn’t been rated by the USCCB? I am interested in buying it - it looks similar to The Others, which I really liked. Recently I’ve been checking the USCCB reviews as this 2007 film hasn’t been reviewed. Anyone see it and can you recommend it? I love scary movies and this seems to be highly regarded. thanks

I loved it. I thought the story was great. As far as a USCCB review, I don’t think there’s anything in there that would make the film morally offensive. Other than some “contacting the dead” stuff. But it’s tough to have a horror flick without that I guess.
