SYNOPSIS: Tragedy seems to follow nine-year-old Esther. She was orphaned in her native Russia. Her last adoptive family perished in a fire Esther barely escaped. But now the Coleman family has adopted her, and life is good. Until a classmate takes a serious fall from a slide. Until an orphanage nun is battered to death. And until Esther?s new mom wonders if that tragic fire was an accident. From Dark Castle Productions comes Orphan, bringing stunning new twists to the psychological thriller and locking audiences in a tightening vise of mystery, suspicion and terror. You?ll never forget Esther. So sweet. So intelligent. So creative. So disturbed.
DVD: Orphan is presented in
a widescreen format with a 1.85:1 aspect ration,
preserving its original theatrical released format. The
transfer looks clean without any relevant color saturation. The picture is
complemented with an English Spanish and French 5.1 Dolby
Digital Sound with Spanish and French subtitles.
In terms of special
features the DVD doesn't include much. It only includes a
few deleted scenes and an alternate ending, which I found to be
a really bad one. I'm glad it wasn't used in the final cut.
Overall Orphan manage to
deliver enough intrigue and intensity to keep the movie
interesting. The approach taken by
Director Jaume Collet-Serra of
adding some gory scenes, sets the film apart from previous
films with similar stories. This is a film that is well worth at
least a rental.
