“Orphan: First Kill” |

murderess in a child’s body

In 2009, “Orphan – The Orphan” was a thriller with an ingenious twist at the end: the murdering girl turned out to be a 33-year-old trapped in a child’s body. Now follows the prequel to tell how it all began.

Story: Short Leena (Isabelle Fuhrmann, 25) makes Tricia (Julia Stiles, 41) and Allen (Rossif Sutherland, 43) believe that they are their daughter Esther, who disappeared years ago. At the age of nine she becomes part of the family, but her façade is crumbling.

Ever since The Exorcist and The Omen, the ‘bad child’ has been firmly established in the horror genre. Instead of becoming an adult, Isabelle Fuhrmann has to become a child 13 years later. This was brilliantly solved with camouflage, computer and camera tricks.

Conclusion: You don’t have to know the first film to be able to follow. This time the twist is even meaner. From this perfidiousness the tension develops. Nothing is what it seems, which is what makes the film so dark and disturbing.

(99 min./FSK: from 16 years)
