Watch: Full Trailer for Del Toro Produced Horror 'Julia's Eyes'

From the man who brought us The Orphanage and Don't Be Afraid of the Dark comes another beautiful, creepy Spanish horror/thriller called Julia's Eyes. An English subtitled trailer for the film was discovered by sites like STYD and Collider, as the trailer has been out before but without any subs (see it on YouTube). Written and directed by Guillem Morales, Julia's Eyes is yet another supernatural ghost thriller about a woman and her husband who return to a town to find that her sister, who was blind due to a degenerative illness, killed herself. Obviously things get spooky from there and I won't spoil anymore, so watch it below.
Watch the early subtitled trailer for Guillem Morales' Julia's Eyes:
Julia's Eyes, or Los ojos de Julia, was written and directed by up-and-coming Spanish filmmaker Guillem Morales, of the feature The Uncertain Guest and numerous short films previously. The script was co-written by Morales & Oriol Paulo ("El cor de la ciutat"). This is produced by Guillermo del Toro and Joaquín Padró and was shot late last year. As far as we know, this doesn't have a US distributor yet but will be playing at a few upcoming film fests, including the Toronto Film Festival (although oddly not in the Midnight Madness category). We'll be keeping our eye on this and checking it out up at TIFF, so stay tuned for more updates if you're interested. You can also check out a very creepy official website (in Spanish) at: losojosdejulia.es.

Longest, dumbest, trailer, I've seen in a while. But.. since Del Toro is behind this, I have no choice but to watch it, Del Toro you fat mother fucker, you better not let me down with this.

I really liked The Orphanage so I'll give this a shot. Looks creepy. Not sure about scary.

intense, cool, but probably too much on it. But as nem says: i have no choice it´s a Del Toro.

Jeez, they didn't have to give away the entire movie. Looks great anyway.

That was the longest trailer in the history of film. I had breakfast and a showe, came back, and it was still going.

very much reminded me of another movie that starred Jessica Alba about haunted eyes.

Movie looks alright. Not scary, but a nice creepy. And what the heck was that music in the beginning!?!!? I KNOW what it is from, but I just can't think of it right now..... and it's driving me nuts!!!!

@14: It's "Besame Mucho" originally written by Consuelo Velasquez. It has been re-released a few times and sung by modern singers like Andrea Bocelli & Diana Krall

Wow. That was a good movie. Short, but OK. Now, why would anyone pay to see it when its right here for free?

I loved The Orphanage, I just hope there's a twist somewhere so this isn't just a spoiler-trailer.
