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

viniciuslimars posted a review 7 months, 2 weeks ago

“Vera Farmiga performed well but the poor performance of Peter Sarsgaard ... disguised the character a lot boring ... we could have seen a greater participation of the hospital in history, Daniel died very early in history could have acted more during the film, helped the mother or detained the psycho girl and last and worst put a child firing a revolver. So much pretense and manipulation in the characters. Movie rating is up to level.” read more
