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

An average movie

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I really struggled to get into this flick. I don’t know, maybe I wasn’t in the right mood but I didn’t really get what was so ‘fun’ or’ entertaining’ about seeing some evil kid killing a bunch of people. I have to admit that the cast was fine though and it is very rare to see some decent actors in a horror flick like this one. However, even if Vera Farmiga and Peter Sarsgaard had a decent chemistry, most of their decisions and actions were dictated by the plot and not by what these characters would actually choose to do. Anyway, there were just so many things that rubbed me in the wrong way. Basically, it is a movie that toys with the concept that, since you w” read more

October 2018 Horrorfest (42 movies items)

"First viewing - Oct. 16th I honestly wasn't excited for this film back when it came out, and then over the years the twist was spoiled & I was reluctant to watch it at all. Thankfully if you know the twist to the film it doesn't take away much from the overall execution (though of course the reveal is more powerful if you don't know it). The cast is excellent all around, and I really got caught up in the familial drama at its center. It's more grounded in reality than most horror movies, and I "

viniciuslimars posted a review 2 years, 8 months 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
