Reviews:
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..." - 07/23/2009 Box Office


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] shamelessly effective horror film based on the most diabolical of movie malefactors, a child." - 07/23/2009 Chicago Sun-Times


"[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." - 07/24/2009 USA Today


"ORPHAN would never work as the thrillingly wicked indulgence it is without the psycho intensity of Fuhrman. She's boosted by Saarsgard and Farmiga..." - 07/23/2009 Movieline


"[I]t's the uproarious twist that will land this one in the horror hall of fame/shame." - 08/04/2009 Total Film
