What can I say about 'Orphan'? I went into this expecting very little since I've seen this done so many times before, at times, with preposterous results (anyone remember the film 'Mikey'?). This one manages to work and surpass expectations. It lays on the suspense, the nail-biting scenes that only the best of the genre are capable of providing. Kudos to the cast for the great performances, although Peter Sarsgaard may come across as a bit stiff (it doesn't help that his character is a bit of a jerk- don't blame the actor) his co-stars steal the spotlight with the stand-out being Isabelle Fuhrman, who plays that conniving little tyrant, that orphan gracing the DVD-Bluray cover who is surprisingly named Esther ' such a benign name, 'Satan' would be far more fitting.

The Coleman's are a young, couple- the boring, arrogant John (Sarsgaard) and his recovering alcoholic wife, Kate (Vera Farmiga) who recently suffered a miscarriage. They adopt a charming little Russian girl, Esther (Fuhrnman) who appears mature for her age, speaks with a delightful accent (so cute) and can play a mean Tchaikovsky on the Colemen's grand piano. She is received with welcoming arms by the couple's hearing impaired daughter, the adorable Maxine 'Max' (Aryana Engineer) and with some hesitation from her brother Daniel (Jimmy Bennett). Esther tries to fit in at home and school but she becomes the brunt of some cruel jokes and suspicions that begin to fuel her pent-up anger. Kate is the first to notice that there is something seriously wrong with Esther (understatement of the year). Trouble seems to follow her around, but Kate's suspicions are met with skepticism and denial from her disbelieving husband. As Esther's malicious ways escalates, it becomes clear that no one is safe.

No Doubt About It. Orphan is the horror movie Horror fans MUST SEE!!

From the start, the horror comes. Through a nightmarish flashback, Kate Coleman (The lovely Vera Farmiga) and her husband John (Peter Sarsgaard)lose their 3rd child during its birth procedure. Kate and John are still grieving over their loss, with Kate being tempted to start heavily drinking again and John coveting another woman named Joyce.

Their 2 kids, their oldest son Daniel and their youngest daughter Max are both anxious at their parents new plan to help remedy their grief: Kate and John have decided that they're going to adopt a young girl from St. Marina's All Girl Orphanage.

That's when they meet the little 9 year old Russian girl named Esther (Isabelle Fuhrman), and movie history is made!!

Esther is sweet, beautiful and very smart for her age. She is very thankful to the Colemans who welcome her into their home, except for Daniel (Who instantly goes out of his way to make enemies with her) Slowly, Kate begins to detect warning signs from her new daughter and fears that her family might be in danger. Especially after Esther's last adoptive family perished in a viscous house fire, a fire Esther barely escaped.

But with that, Esther is also very, VERY disturbed. She is manipulative, cunning and deadly. Esther is the type of movie villain who has no pity, remorse or morality when it comes to getting her way across.

saying there may be something wrong with Esther is understatement.if hell is missing one of its demons,they can call off the search.Esther isn't really a demon,but you get the idea.the main premise of the movie may not be all that original,but this movie puts its own little twist/spin on it that i thought was quite ingenious.there are a few clues that lead you toward it if you really pay attention.and for once,i actually was,and knew there something else going on,and fleetingly had the right idea of what the twist was gonna be,but then abandoned it for some reason.beyond the great twist,though,the rest of the movie is also fantastic.it moves right along,has great suspense,has some very harrowing moments.the acting was great.i love Vera Farmiga in anything she appears in.she takes a back seat here though to young Isabelle Fuhrman,who portrays Esther.if this movie is any indication she has a very bright future ahead of her.overall,one of the better made suspense/horror films i've seen in awhile. 5/5

Format: Blu-ray
Poor Esther (Isabelle Fuhrman at 12 years). All she wanted was a little love. Unfortunately, there are a few obstacles to remove first. This takes planning, finesses, and a little collusion.

This defiantly is not "Dementia 13" but it is a want-a-be. The film is highly predictable as most of the blood is in the first scene. That is because it was supposed to be a psychological thriller yet turned out to be a cheap slasher. The movie may be in a hurry to end but you do not have time to ward the unaware schnooks that they are about to be dispatched by a household utensil or the odd tool. The only spooky or over the top violence was when a poor defenseless pigeon was dispatched with force.

Only saw the Blu-ray but nothing really looked fake on the big screen TV.
