Aaron's Review of Orphan

  • 17 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

    Orphan (2009)


    I'm old enough know to have seen a LOT of horror movies, and the one thing that bugs me is to pull the whole "Oh, they're probably dead, so I'll just leave them". The problem with this movie was the amount of cliches it contained. The performances were fine, the creepiness was at maximum, but I will never understand why most horror movies always play it safe and stick with the same lame cliches. Bathroom cabinet mirror? Check. Unintelligent people? check. Psychotic drawings? Check. Well, they actually tried to fake the audience out by making it look like a cliche was about to happen, but nope. Gotcha ya! Despite my whining, Isabelle Fuhrman did a good job portraying a creepy "little" girl, and if you're a horror fan, you will be sure to find some entertainment out of this. Definitely worth a rent, but nothing more.
