Orphan Movie Review

There’s something wrong with Esther.
The scares are  not over the top, there is a good doze of humor and the ending is unexpected in Orphan, the latest Warner Bros. film from the director of House of Wax.

There will be some Hardcore Horror fans that will find this movie too absurd and even silly but do not let their opinion influence you. This movie will appeal to a wide range of movie watchers, young and old alike.

Esther (Isabelle Fuhrman) is a solitary Russian-accented angel with a serious, wise-beyond-her-9-years demeanor that somehow hasn’t found a good family or a loving place to live, until now…

From the moment Esther enters her new home, the movie seem to take you on a story that you wont believe. From creepy comedy that will have you laughing out loud to scenes that will make you close your eyes, this movie has it all.

Too many Suspense movies have missed the point or the formula for a good Creepy film. Others, in the other hand, have not. If your library consist of movies such as The Omen, The Good Son, Godsend, The Orphanage, Hide and Seek, Joshua, etc. Then you MUST see Orphan. It will not dissapoint.


*Note: Do not watch if you are planning to adopt a child in the near future. Trust me…
