Music From Another Room is a romantic comedy that follows the exploits of Danny, a young man who grew up believing he was destined to marry the girl he helped deliver as a five year old boy when his neighbor went into emergency labor. Twenty-five years later, Danny returns to his hometown and finds the irresistible Anna Swann but she finds it easy to resist him since she is already engaged to dreamboat Eric, a very practical match. In pursuit of Anna, Danny finds himself entangled with each of the eccentric Swanns including blind, sheltered Nina, cynical sister Karen, big brother Bill and dramatic mother Grace as he fights to prove that fate should never be messed with and passion should never be practical.

The Orphanage benefits from having a strong and grounded performance from Beln Rueda, without overwhelming it's plot with supernatural clichs and jump scares.One thing is for certain, J.A. Bayona is phenomenal director. I've heard great things about his upcoming 'A Monster Calls', 'The Impossible' is one of the most heart-wrenching films of all time, and The Orphanage kicked off his directing with a bang. But there's one thing all of those films have in common, they deal with a mother's relationship to her son. I've obviously never met Bayona, but he had to have a strong connection to his mother. And among other things, that was the most satisfying element to The Orphanage. Guillermo del Toro produced this, and as much as I love a lot of his films, sometimes his films are more about spectacle than they are about real human emotion. Luckily, Bayona gave plenty of that to The Orphanage.Movies about disappearances or deaths of children are always very difficult to watch. Especially the films that take a horror approach, like The Orphanage. Kids are always creepy in horror-thrillers, there's just no two ways about it. But as long as Beln Rueda keeps her performance grounded, this movie stays afloat. This movie certainly delves into some things that we have seen in horror films before, mostly having to do with supernatural ideas or dream-like people returning from the dead, but I never found myself all that invested in those scenes. I'm far more interested in seeing how a mother reacts to her child go missing. The film doesn't necessarily have as many layers as other horror-thrillers, but as a first time director, I couldn't have asked for more from Bayona. Hopefully 'A Monster Calls' and The Jurassic World sequel continue the string of great work from him.+Mother-son relationship+Stays relatively grounded+Simple story...-...Could have had a little bit more depth7.7/10

That being said, I feel as though he is slightly underrated, especially after shelling out this small mid-90's gem, about a particularly creepy scarecrow that is animated by the tortured soul of an old time witch who was murdered by the townsfolk. Now, he's after the ancestors of the family that slayed him, which is the Goodman family, made up of the town farmer (Dirk Blocker), the town Sheriff (Stephen Root, from King of the Hill and Office Space), the town preacher (Crispin Glover's dad, Bruce, who's just as loony as his son), and town mayor (Gary Lockwood). It's up to the mayor's daughter (Elizabeth Barondes) and new boyfriend (Joe Mese) to stop the killer scarecrow before the entire town is destroyed. While the leads are ineffective, the supporting cast really manages to entertain. Also, with Burr, there's no shortage of violence and gore to his films and Night of the Scarecrow is the same way, offering up some pretty violent and bloody deaths. This is a definite gem and should be given a DVD release! Fun film.
