Performers, Cast and Crew:
Box Office - 07/23/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "To pull all the operatics off, producers have wisely cast solid pros Sarsgaard and Farmiga, who bring real dimension to a couple reeling from one tragedy and about to experience another....The real find is young Fuhrman..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 07/23/2009
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] shamelessly effective horror film based on the most diabolical of movie malefactors, a child."
USA Today - 07/24/2009
"[I]t's a cut above most spooky-kid movies, with a twist that sets it apart....The plot unfolds with a palpable sense of tension."
Movieline - 07/23/2009
"ORPHAN would never work as the thrillingly wicked indulgence it is without the psycho intensity of Fuhrman. She's boosted by Saarsgard and Farmiga..."
Total Film - 08/04/2009
"[I]t's the uproarious twist that will land this one in the horror hall of fame/shame."
Horror's creepy child genre gets another entry with this chiller from Jaume Collet-Serra (HOUSE OF WAX). After the death of their unborn child, Kate (Vera Farmiga) and John (Peter Sarsgaard) go to an orphanage to consider adoption. There, they find Esther, a young girl who seems innocent, but she brings destruction to her new family.
