Case 39

Hello Horror lovers, today i will be reviewing a movie directed by Christian Alvart called Case 39. The movie is about a social worker played by Renee Zellweger who decides to to take in an abused little girl called Lily(Jodelle Ferland) after she catches Lily's parent trying to kill her by shoving  her in an oven. So after taking in the little girl a couple of days later things start to get a little awry, which i think was to be expected. In anycase as the movie goes on people all of a sudden start to die including Zellwegers love interest played by Bradly Cooper who predictably dies after little Lily threatens him..

So as more and more bodies start to pile up and Zellweger realises the girl she took in is a demon, she decides to take matters into her own hands and kill the lil devil. Honestly this movie kind off sucked, i found myself losing concentration and found it pretty predictable. I also couldnt help but compare it to the movie Orphan, which i think delivered a lil more pazazz than this one. There where some disturbingly good scenes like the ways in which  Bradly Coopers character and Lily's parents die. I think this movie is almost totally saved by Jodelle Ferland's excellent acting skills and the way she embodied her character definately did give me some chills.

Its a good light-hearted movie and reminds us to always do extensive back-up research before you do anything drastic like adopting a child (insert Orphan) and hey if any of you find that you may have mistakenly adopted a demon child, remember that Fed-Ex is there for a reason...RE: RETURN TO SENDER!!!

Rating: 6/10


  1. Haha I agree this horror movie ended up being a good light hearted movie thanks to Rennee's survival and Jodelle Ferland did an awesome job at acting, she definitely has the makings of good actor.

  2. hahaha true aint nothing scarier than a demon baby lol come to think of it how would you even get rid of a demon baby if u got one back home, i mean honestly no one wud help you people would think its because you a voodoo priestess or watevs lol
