We are one.

-We are one.

-We are one.

We sealed our promise.

And we started hiding

from the world...

until I turned 21.


Jack! Jack!

Six months later

I'm tired of being

locked up in this house.

It won't be long before

your birthday, Jack.

We should start thinking

about your party.

That lawyer Porter was hanging

on the fence last week again.

We'll be done with him soon enough.

Come Christmas time it

will all be different.

You'll see, Billy.

Billy! Billy!

What Sam?

I heard a noise

behind the mirror

and the cover is falling off.

If you don't do something,

ghost might be able

to see us again.

Stop being such a baby.

You don't need to be scared.

Sam, the ghost has

been gone for months.

Here, give me this.


Come on, Scoundrel,

come get your breakfast.

So that's what's making

the noises behind the walls.

It's that big rat.

Sam, stop feeding it.

It's making holes

all over the house.

Do you want me to

let her starve?

You don't know where

that thing has been.

All right? You could get rabies.

She won't bite me,

she's my friend.

Terrible thing, rabies.

You'll get foam

coming out your mouth

until your insides

are all rotten.

I'll have to spend my

last bullet on you.

Then I'll hide behind the mirror

and scream and cry all night

and you'll never sleep again.

Yeah, but the dead

don't cry or scream.

Tell me that next time you hear the

ghost in the middle of the night.

Oh, f***.



No extra money, no nonsense.

We'll see.


We'll follow you on the map, Jack,

so you don't feel alone.

He's just left the

Marrowbone home.

He's going through the forest.

That was a bird.

And then he goes

down the tunnel.

Through the tunnel.

And then, he goes

out of the tunnel...

The Orphanage was a large hit and Sánchez was nominated for Best Screenplay at the 2008 Goya Awards in Spain.In May 2009, Variety reported that Sánchez would re-team up with The Orphanage director Juan Antonio Bayona, on a production by Madrid-based Apaches Entertainment, Telecinco Cinema, and Spongeman, Bayona's own Barcelona-based label.
