Synopsis


Orphan
An outwardly angelic little girl displays an unforeseen devilish streak upon moving into the home of her new adoptive parents in this shocker starring Peter Sarsgaard and Vera Farmiga. In the aftermath of a miscarriage, prospective parents Kate (Farmiga) and John (Sarsgaard) find their lives turned upside down; their marriage is falling apart, and the demons of Kate's past begin manifesting themselves in a series of horrifying nightmares. Deciding that the best means of achieving some semblance of normalcy is to simply adopt, the dejected couple visits a local orphanage. There, they are both drawn to a nine-year-old girl named Esther. But Esther isn't as sweet as first impressions suggest, and almost immediately after welcoming the young child into their home, Kate and John suspect that something is terribly wrong with their adoptive daughter. Kate can see right through Esther's seraphic charm, though her attempts to convince everyone else of the truth go unheeded by her skeptical family and friends. By the time anyone bothers to take Kate seriously, it may be too late to prevent a devastating tragedy from unfolding. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    a big twist at the end makes up for the length,...

    Well acted, even though a couple charecters are very hard to like, this is much better than any evil child movie I've ever seen. despite some clear simalarities to them here, the so-called cliches don't ruin the story either. The twist at the end, unless your extremely perceptive, you won't see coming, although some people I've spoken with weren't that surprised when it happened, but before you take my word for how good it is, see it for yourself, I have it in my library, but that doesn't mean that everyone will agree that it's owner's material, I'm sure not everyone will like it, but I would advise parents not to let anyone under age watch it-there's alot of adult content that kids just shouldn't see. This one is definately for adults only-a few scenes creeped me out and I'm 29.

    This has got to be the best thriller I have seen in a long time. If you like the 6th sense and stir of echoes then you will love this film. The film is well scripted acted and the direction is second to none.The story is brilliant and has some genuinely chilling moments. The film has jumps, twists and dramatic licence that pulls you to the edge of your seat. The Child actors are superb with a totally suger and brat free zone, The film is chilling and has all the great horror lines "get your family out of the house now!" in masses. I watched this film with my wife and she loved it too. The film will appeal to the thriller fans and horror buffs, all in all a great film on a great disc.

    Must see movie. The girl that plays Esther, (Isabel?) Has Oscar Award written all over her. She nailed that part (or I should say PARTS), and I know movies, especially horror flicks, although this is probably listed as suspense, She was able to change from sweet kid, to evil, to sweet sneaky kid to the surprise twist at the ending kid! She scared the heck out of me! Saw it at the theater, on my way to buy it now. I highly recommend this movie! It was well written, has a plot, story line and a SURPRISE twist at the end! These movies don't come along often, enjoy it while it lasts.

    A fairly stylish and psychologically complex film.

    "Orphan" is charming, if imperfect little horror movie that sits comfortably in the evil little kid sub-genre, while trying desperately to transcend it. While that doesn't happen, exactly, it's a whole lot of fun, with some fine performances and generally twisted revelations. This Blu-ray disc from Warner Bros. is quite impressive, with wonderful audio and video. Sure, the special features disappoint big time, but when a disc looks and sounds this good, it's easy to forgive, if you want some spooky chills, you could do a lot worse than to adopt his "Orphan". Highly Recommended!

    Unquestioably one of the CREEPIEST THRILLERS to come our way in years! This film is really worth watching; it was a shame that Warner Bros. released it in August when it failed to get attention; it should have been released theatrically around Halloween; it would have been a SMASH! I always recommend this to my friends who want something spooky, creepy, and very exciting!

    Twisted Ending

    This movie is beyond of a twist of an ending. My jaw literally dropped when the twist came and I just stood there in shock staring. This movie is a great deal for the price and I highly recommend this for anyone to see. This little girl makes Maccauley Caulkin in The Good Son look like an angel.

    I, absolutely love this movie. It wasn't what I expected, and it's sick and twisted. If you want a messed up movie, watch this one. It'll catch you by surprise. It keeps you guessing, but also makes you think one thing, but you'll be completely wrong in the end. WATCH THIS MOVIE!~
