I thought we might have a thread for capsule reviews of TV and Films you are into. Or Just post the Title , what ever is fun and engaging for you.
I also recently watched this film, I was very surprised by the ending and how it turned out. But this is not a scary movie. yes, it's "horror" genre or kind of, but do not expect to be scared! enjoyed the nice story, atmosphere, and the acting was great!Orphan (2009)
Writers:David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (screenplay) (as David Leslie Johnson), Alex Mace (story)
Stars:Vera Farmiga, Peter Sarsgaard, Isabelle Fuhrman as Esther
A husband and wife who recently lost their baby adopt Esther a 9-year-old Russian orphan girl who seem to be the perfect child at first glance. Esther is not nearly as innocent as she claims to be.
Once in awhile a film will come out that tries to be different and put out an original story. Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra has done just that with feature film Orphan. While this sub-genre of horror usually means some sort of demonic-possession or some sort of mental or genetic abnormality causing for their psychotic or sociopath behavior, in Orphan an interesting reason was given to the nature of it's titular character.
this film is totally Isabelle Fuhrmann's and she sticks the landing. Soviet gymnast Olga Korbut would have approved of Furmann's form .
Orphan tackles some complex issues that add depth. The film builds great suspense with some eye-opening disturbing violence consisting of successful and attempted murders, while others are injured and self-mutilation occurs. Various scenes of that have bloody results. Orphan is the Real McCoy for horror-hound.
Well made, well Acted, surprisingly great horror-thriller! Orphan is a cut above most spooky-kid movies, with a twist that sets it apart. 8/10
