This movie was chilling & brilliantly made...how the heck did it only get 56% rating?!?!?! How the Oscars ignored this movie just baffles me!! Reviewers are complaining that the plot lines are cliché or predictable...well, that is just absurd...it took balls to do this movie and it should have gotten a lot more respect. Such a unique twisted vision at something we can hardly imagine much less live thru, God forbid...

While this is certainly not the best of films, it sure does have its moments where tension builds and you're suddenly found on the edge of your seat.
Worth a watch at least once, but do go in with somewhat lower expectations than you normally would with its quite unique premise and you should find plenty of entertainment.

Puntaje Original: 6.0

Si trataron de dar miedo, fallaron en su intento; pero si lo hubieran hecho un drama, tenian una gran historia por explotar.

Frightening enough without having to resort the fantastical or the supernatural. The acting throughout is believable,the story is actually plausible without too much of a reach.

Orphan is about an orphaned girl named Esther who has a very hard time fitting in with any family she is with and every foster home she stays in, until a family who has just recently lost their child decide to adopt a new child to fill in the void. Everything seems perfect for the family, until Esther starts showing some strange habits, such as playing the piano like an actual pianist, even though she started learning only three days ago, sudden intelligence, and same very mean habits. This movie is one of the best psychological thrillers I have ever seen, it scary, thrilling, confusing, and dark. It has a very interesting story line and and a great build up to the final act of the movie, the only problems I have with this movie are a few continuity errors, plot holes, and some off acting at times. It also had a few scenes when the characters in the movie can make you get agitated with them for either being idiots or some of the things they say, but all an all, this is a very good psychological thriller that in my opinion, is very underrated.

'The Orphan' could have been a really good quasi-horror thriller, if not for the nonsensical plot and the preposterous chain of events that go from one illogical scene to the next. It's begins well, but worsens (with increasing momentum) as the story unfolds. On the positives, the acting is fairly solid all round, especially from the (then) 12 year old girl who played Esther. There nothing particularly wrong with the script, either. Or the competent directing from Collet-Serra. It really is just the boneheaded story that lets it all down. Sadly, there's a good film in here somewhere, but it's not enough. 2.5*/5

A gripping film with an unexpected plot. A lot of suspense and i would really recommend this film for anyone who enjoys a good creepy thriller.

A damn good horror movie, one of the best ones to come out in a long while. Everything was done well - the writing, the directing, the acting, the editing, and the film has a very realistic quality to it, while still being the kind of movie you shout at the screen with friends at a theater. And I don't know who this actress is who plays this girl, but she has nutso acting-chops. If you want a good, f***ed up horror movie to go see, look no further.

I hope I don't develop any brain damage after watching this awful piece of crap that goes for every single ridiculous cliché of horror movies: from stupid scares even when there is nothing to be afraid of to the most irritating idiocy of nobody ever believing the main character.
