Orphan is a 2009 horror movie that would make your blood run cold and probably also put you off adopting children. Many of its reviewers call it a chilling movie while many admit to it being downright horrifying. I agree with both schools of thought. It was horrifying to watch a 9-year-old seducing her stepfather. I mean how evil can a very sweet looking innocent orphan child be? You need to watch it to decide. It would have been much better if the movie wasn't so slow-paced though, it kinda dragged us slowly through the whole excruciating debacle.

Devastated by the loss of their unborn baby, Kate (Vera Farmiga) and John (Peter Sarsgaard) decide to adopt a child. At the orphanage, both feel drawn to a little girl (Isabelle Fuhrman) named Esther, and soon the couple take their new daughter home. But when a dangerous series of events unfolds, Kate begins to suspect that there is something evil lurking behind the child's angelic exterior.
