It's a bummer when the audience is smarter than the protagonist.

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.

By the time the killings start, it's clear that Ray Wright's screenplay is more interested in following formula than in breaking new ground.

The devil made them do it, but that doesn't mean you have to see it.

[Plays] like one more piece of multiplex in-box clutter, ready for the circular file in our moviegoing consciousness.

An aggressively inept demon-seed chiller starring a bunch of grown-ups who should've known better.

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.

This is horror hokum of the cheesiest kind. Rent 'Orphan' instead.

This is a nasty and morally repulsive film.
