Although it looks like an ‘Orphan’ rip-off, actually it’s not. They do cross the same roads though.

Cast: Renee Zelwegger, Ian McShane, Bradley Cooper, Jodelle Ferland.

Synopsis: “Case 39” centers on an idealistic social worker who saves an abused 10-year-old girl from her parents only to discover that the girl is not as innocent as she thinks.


HOLY CRAP! The kid(Ferland) creeped the fuck out me. She did things that convinced me not to adopt any kids(not that I was planning on it).

The movie was fairly creepy. I mean this is more of a thriller than horror, so the suspense kept building and I was entertained. It never got boring.

Ian McShane is always fun to watch. Whether it’s an action flick or magical one or horror, it doesn’t matter, he makes his character enjoyable. And also, same goes for Bradley Cooper with a cherry on top.

There was a scene with Brad Cooper and creepy little Ferland that was so amazing, when the scene ended I was like wtf..? At least rent the movie to see that scene.

The two parents of the kid did a good job.


Why does Renee Zelwegger always looks like she is having lower intestinal problems? Her facial expressions were shit. And she was also a better actress before.

The movie went downhill after 55 minutes of its runtime. It could have been a lot better if they didn’t go all typical and predictable.


The movie is not good as Orphan(my 5th favorite movie of last year) was, I’m comparing because they are from the same ‘evil-kids’ sub-genre. Orphan had a better premise and a lot better ending whereas this movie started good but ended like just another movie from the corner. That being said, this doesn’t mean it was bad, it stands on its own as a decent enough time-passer. I’ve seen better but I’ve seen way worse as well. It gets a 65% (B-).
