Sánchez, screenwriter of Juan Antonio Bayona’s THE ORPHANAGE and also Guillem Morales’ Julia’s Eyes, the follow-up to his 2005 Spanish-language debut, psychological thriller “El habitante incierto” (The Uncertain Guest). Morale’s is also developing a remake to the film, which is currently titled The Uninvited Guest, which we also found the art and synopsis for! Read on for it all!
