Orphan 2009

Updated on March 3, 2016

Orphan Movie Still

Horror

Everyone who knows me will tell you how much I enjoy watching movies. My top choice is always horror, but I can get into action, drama; romance and the occasional comedy. I have grown up with such flicks like Jaws, Amityville, Poltergeist the Exorcist and Scarface among others, and since then the movie industry has tried their very best to match them. Some have done a superb job when it comes to gore, and goose bumps but many have also failed.

Within the past few years I can say the Hostel, Saw, and Hills Have Eyes saga has brought a new meaning to gore with eye popping scenes, decapitations and bone crushing mechanisms, and I couldn’t be more excited. Yes, these are among the nastiest films ever released, but like I said I love horror, and the more realistic a scene is the more respect I must give these directors for having the foresight to film them in the first place.


This month’s the Orphan to be released July 24th, looks to be a great hit at the box office, and so it begins. After the tragic loss of their unborn child has devastated Kate (Vera Farmiga) and John (Peter Sarsgaard), taking a toll on both their marriage and Kate's fragile psyche as she is plagued by nightmares and haunted by demons from her past. Struggling to regain some semblance of normalcy in their lives, the couple decides to adopt another child. At the local orphanage, both John and Kate find themselves strangely drawn to a young girl named Esther, played by Isabelle Fuhrman. Almost as soon as they welcome Esther into their home, however, an alarming series of events begins to unfold, leading Kate to believe that there's something wrong with Esther as this seemingly angelic little girl is not what she appears to be. Concerned for the safety of her family, Kate tries to get John and others to see past Esther's sweet façade, but her warnings go unheeded until it may be too late for everyone.

Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra an up and coming director who brought us the remake of the twisted 2005 version of House of Wax with such flair, will only prove once more that he is a director to look out for and I for one can’t wait till the release of his latest.

      This movie was GREAT!!!!!! I am a movie buff myself. I have to admit this movie was very well done. Not too scary, but the plot to me was great...

      Now I just wish Virginia Beach would get Paranormal Activity
