Would horror lovers enjoy this film?
Orphan is not a very scary horror film. However, the film itself was made well, but with a massive Hollywood budget then that is what you would expect. This film screams “Hollywood horror film” and was definitely not a horror film that horror addicts will enjoy very much. The jump scares are cheap, and the story line just is not scary. The orphan herself is just a bit psycho, and that is basically the films horror. Simply her behaviour getting worse and worse, more and more violent until an eventual plot twist. Which admittedly is pretty creepy, in the sense that if it happened in real life it would be pretty scary. This film is entertaining though, and if you are new to watching horror films you might get pretty scared, but not a good horror film overall to watch if you are a horror addict.
