There aren't many things that get me as excited as the word "próximamente" at the end of trailer, but the words "horror", "Belén Rueda", and "Guillermo Del Toro" just about do it.

Julia's Eyes is about a woman who has a sister who died in mysterious circumstances as well as a degenerative sight condition. So of course, as soon as she starts investigating the paranormal darkness surrounding her house, someone turns out the lights. Bet she didn't see that one coming. Ho ho ho.

Guillem Morales' second feature film looks very promising judging by the actors involved. There's Belén Rueda as Julia, who's more than capable of bringing the emotions, and also the excellent Lluís Homar, who was decent in both Broken Embraces and Fermat's Room.

Then there's the obvious fact that Julia's Eyes follows (sort of) in the footsteps of the brilliant 2004 horror The Orphanage. Not because the poster says so, but because it was also produced by Del Toro and helmed by a relative newcomer. Plus both films share the talented Rueda as the female lead.

The other major thing the two have in common? They both have rather scary trailers.

Julia's Eyes (Los Ojos de Julia) is released on Friday 20th May. Read on for the full trailer, or head this way to see more Julia's Eyes videos in the coming weeks.

Remember that promo video that we posted a while back for spooky Spanish horror movie Julia's Eyes? Well, a proper trailer has turned up now, and it's just as spooky. But with less spoilers.

Starring The Orphanage's Belen Rueda, it sees Julia investigating the death of her sister - something ruled to be a suicide, despite Julia's supernatural suspicions. Suffering from the same degenerative eye disease as her sister, she gropes around in the growing darkness, becoming increasingly aware of a dark figure lurking in the shadows.

Directed by Guillema Morales, Julia's Eyes is at the Toronto International Film Festival this week, so expect some first reactions to crop up online. They'll mostly be positive in all likelihood - Guillermo Del Toro's producing it, after all.

Julia's Eyes opens in Spain in October. There's no word on the UK release yet. Head over here to see the trailer, or read on for the full video.

For those easily scared, the very words "Guillermo Del Toro Presents" make your skin crawl. Mostly with excitement. The new video for the latest in Del Toro's presentational line, Julia's Eyes, will make them very happy. And scared.

Directed by Guillem Morales, Julia's Eyes stars Belen Rueda, who was also leading lady in Juan Antonio Bayona's The Orphanage. Judging from the promo trailer, either Del Toro knows that woman can work those chills, or he's just really good at picking directors who share his twisted brainwaves.

Rueda plays Julia and her twin sister, Sara. When Sara dies, Julia decides it's mysterious enough to warrant an investigation. But Sara was blind, and as Julia's eyes degenerate from the same condition, she begins to see more in the murky darkness that surrounded Sara before her suspicious death.

Not your usual audience-focussed teaser, this promotional video takes you a good three-quarters through the movie's jolts, so be warned of some serious spoilerage. On the other hand, it also makes Julia's Eyes look like another excellent horror movie from Del Toro's production team. Not that we're surprised by that. It does say Del Toro on the tin.

Julia's Eyes premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival next month, so we may well get it at the LFF. You can catch the promo over at Collider, or read on for the full video.

Ok, so that headline doesn't make much sense. But director Mark Pellington has indeed signed on to call the shots on New Line's remake of The Orphanage. And the very idea of doing that - announced last year - still takes the 1 2 3. Sure, Guillermo Del Toro is overseeing the translation of the superb (and sad) Spanish shocker, but do we really need to remake it at all?

Del Toro is also co-writing with Larry Fessenden, who will be looking to take Juan Antonio Bayona's tale of a mother missing her lost son in a haunted orphanage and make it scary for all us English-speaking folk. Most of whom would have read the subtitles on the first one anyway - except for Variety, who seem to have misunderstood the plot somewhat. Hopefully Fessenden hasn't, and will include the slow counting hide and seek game, along with the subtle emotional current that flowed through the whole thing.

Still, the really scary part? After helming The Mothman Prophecies and Arlington Road, Mark Pellington went on to direct U2 3D. If that has any relevance to this remake, I'll knock the 1, 2, 3 out of all of them.
