Orphan 2009


Recommended Posts

Kate and John Coleman are rebuilding their troubled marriage. Kate had a drinking problem, but is in therapy and is doing well. She has been sober for one year. The couple decides to adopt a child. When they meet the nine-year-old Russian girl, Esther, at the St. Marina Orphanage, they immediately fall in love with the well-educated orphan. Their young son, Daniel, is hostile to his new sister; but their deaf-mute daughter, little Max, is enchanted with her - at first. Eventually, Kate begins to feel that Esther is manipulative and possibly even psychologically disturbed. John refuses to listen to his wife's misgivings, and the wounds in their marriage reopen. Kate calls Sister Abigail at the orphanage, and the nun informs her that Esther has a troubled and mysterious history. Kate delves further into Esther's past and discovers she is not at all who she pretends to be

 

for me this may be one of the better simple horror stories in quite a while. the children in the movie definitely can act. the show may be two hours long but it didnt feel it. love the way the story/suspense builds up even though most of the scares in the movie are quite cliche. and be warned, even though the movie may not be as bloody as some other recent horror flicks, it doesnt make it any less disturbing
