Generic, cliché-ridden suspense film

"I have a special surprise for you, Mommy!"

In motion pictures, it's a widespread belief that children are the embodiment of pure evil. Perhaps not all kids are the spawn of Satan, but horror filmmakers realise that evil disguised behind the eyes of a seemingly innocent child is an effective way of amplifying the scare factor. Into this genre now steps 2009's Orphan. Instead of bein... read more

Sei que 'novo clássico' possa soar estranho, mas em minha concepção o filme realmente consegue esse título. Hoje em dia é tão, mas tão difícil encontrar um filme de terror que você tenha coragem de dar uma nota acima de 7,0 que qualquer outra idéia pode fazer você ovular (haha)
Orfã é um belo filme, a fotografia é ótima e eu realmente achei o 'clima' do filme um ponto meramen... read more

That's the story of, that's the glory of love..

Brilliant. The subtle horror brought upon by a young girl gave the film an eerie and intense mood all throughout. At first, you wouldn't think that this film is worth tuppence, but as the events progress, each revelation gives you an idea of what the film is about. Frankly, it was one of the best films I've seen which features a child as... read more

“Orphan is the best movie EVER!!! Everything in this movie is great! They get what they want you to feel, the horror, the mystery, the suspicion... It keeps you glued to the seat from the beginning to the end!! The movie turns around a secret which is revealed at the end of the movie, that moment leaves you in SHOCK.

I have seen this movie a lot of times and it keeps surprising me!! Orphan is the most shocking movie I've ever seen!!” read more
