Almost identical to 2009's Orphan, Case 39 does little keep your attention as its riddled with cliches--menacing music, domino casualties, and predictable horror plotline.

While it's able to pull you in at some points with its eerie mood, it needed a lot more originality and better scares than the cheap kind of just having things pop up out of nowhere.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Despite its initial premise showing promise, Case 39 turns out to be boring, predictable and nothing new.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

The end of Zellweger as we've known her.

March 5, 2010
Quite scary at times, intriguing ideas and a good cast, including Ian McShane and Adrian Lester, are used badly.

March 5, 2010
With some parents hurting their kids in real life because they believe they are possessed, the whole tone of this absurd movie is inappropriate.

If I'm to understand the movie as it is presented, demons do not enjoy passive aggression, it only enrages them further, and to avoid a demon, it's best if you're neither a nice nor smart person, because then the demon has nothing to work with.

Stale reheat of the creepy kid genre. No point investigating. Case closed.

Case 39 is slow, painful and one suspects for both Cooper and Renee Zellweger full of regrets.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
March 5, 2010
Ferland's fine performance aside, Case 39 is bafflingly stupid and poorly executed sub-horror fodder.
November 5, 2009
One of those movies that's bad enough to make it worth seeing.

Case 39 is too bland, with scares that are so polite they almost take their shoes off to avoid dirtying the hallway carpet of your mind.

March 15, 2010
Only the procession of unintentional laughs and an unflinchingly confident turn by youngster Jodelle Ferland as Lilith emerge as reasons not to bury your head in a bucket of popcorn and rue the regrettable moment a certain vault was unlocked.

Case 39 is basically a poor man's Orphan - which wasn't that good anyway.

March 5, 2010
Daft, throwaway tosh that doesn't even qualify as a guilty pleasure.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 5, 2014
A soulless amalgamation of several horror classics, and marks another dud in the career of Renee Zellweger.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 6, 2010
From a bevy of cheesy jolt scares (alarm clock! barking dog!) to the embarrassing sight of Zellweger and Ian McShane treating this Orphan-style B-movie silliness with grave seriousness, the film proves to be one hokey-horror riot.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

This is one of the least scary, dumbest movies I've seen in a long time.

This is a nasty and morally repulsive film.
September 30, 2010
This ludicrous outing from helmer Christian Alvart and scribe Ray Wright takes its psycho-satanic babble much too seriously, and should elicit more laughs than frights.
