Wow. That took a completely unexpected turn. From Damien light to... Well, I don't know really. Such a weak back story, a certain amount of cliches (but not where you expect them to be), yet it managed to hold my attention throughout with the great, but weird acting and a story that sucks you in despite everything. I have to a agree with a previous reviewer, WTF describes this one best. But not necessarily in a bad way.
Well I wasn't expecting that. Not a bad scary movie.
@snh20 agreed.. this movie is a member of my, Cringe Worthy Films!... ick! lol
W T F. That was my reaction to this movie the first time I watched it and that is still the way I feel. The acting was great though. Especially from the girl who played the 9 year old girl.
Orphan was good, not great. The second half was better than the first. The twist was an unexpected surprise and breathed new life into child horror films. The acting was top notch, especially by newcomer, Isabelle Fuhrman.
If you like psycho nanny manipulates household till sh*@& hits the fan type flicks (and I do), then you'll really like this. Yes, it's true, the classic blind & gullible husband has one wanting to spew profanities at him, but the story is better than usual, the acting is too and at least hubbie doesn't succumb to the usual - I'd like to clarify that but you'll have to see what I mean when you watch :)

Started Good, then the last hour to 30 mins just got a little boring. So I will give 7/10

great movie, unexpected ending 9/10

I was bored within the first 3 minutes...

One of the best thriller movies of the decade! I like everything about this movie! I felt like a fool avoiding Orphan for a while, but after watching it, I was soooo impressed.
