Two Trailers for the Horror Movie Orphan

10 Comments

The first and only time I posted on “House of Wax” director Jaume Collet-Serra’s latest, the orphan thriller, well, “Orphan”, the post ended up being a conversation about adoptions and what have you. Well here’s the latest on the movie — two trailers, with the second one including additional footage, though really, they’re both pretty much the same. Ready for one creepy ass girl name Esther? Well you best be ready, cause she’s coming…

The tragic loss of their unborn child has devastated Kate and John, taking a toll on both their marriage and Kate’s fragile psyche as she is plagued by nightmares and haunted by demons from her past. Struggling to regain some semblance of normalcy in their lives, the couple decides to adopt another child. At the local orphanage, both John and Kate find themselves strangely drawn to a young girl named Esther. Almost as soon as they welcome Esther into their home, however, an alarming series of events begins to unfold, leading Kate to believe that there’s something wrong with Esther-this seemingly angelic little girl is not what she appears to be. Concerned for the safety of her family, Kate tries to get John and others to see past Esther’s sweet facade. But her warnings go unheeded until it may be too late…for everyone.

Starring Vera Farmiga, Peter Sarsgaard, Isabelle Fuhrman, CCH Pounder, Jimmy Bennett, Aryana Engineer, and Lorry Ayers. Jaume Collet-Serra (“House of Wax”) directs.

Stay away from the orphanage July 24.

      (Remember: This first part is all told in flashback at the end of the movie so we don’t actually see this happen in real time)

      Esther is a little girl who was taken away by social services after she witnesses her mother murder her father in a really gruesome way. She is put in foster care for a while until she is caught trying to re-enact the murder scene with a little girl in her foster home. She is then put into an asylum. when she is there she struggles so much with her straightjacket it leaves marks on her neck and wrist which is why they r always covered with ribbons.
      So, here’s the good part: One night she escapes from the asylum and knocks on a woman’s door saying her father dropped her at the edge of the nearby river and left. The woman lets her stay the night and promises to take her to the orphanage the next morning. The next day they drive to the orphanage where the woman and the orphanage director speak (We don’t hear this conversation). Then, the family comes and decides to adopt her after their first choice mysteriously is no longer up for adoption (we later find out she killed him). So, Esther basically wreaks havoc on the mother because her mother killed her father. She and her father were very close so she holds a soft spot for John and wants him all to herself.

      crazy hmm?
