Critics reviews

A work of relentless mental terrorism, Orphan is one of the more artfully depraved properties to hit the multiplex in ages… Its success rests in no small part on the wholly committed performances of Farmiga and Sarsgaard – neither at that point particularly known for genre slumming – as well as Fuhrman, a mannerly little angel in Victorian ruffles who punches across lines like, “I’ll cut your hairless little prick off before you even figure out what it’s for” with Soviet bloc sang-froid.
