Orphan (2009) is the flick (of recent releases) I've most wanted to see that I should've seen in the theater. Hot damn is this a ball of crazy and wrong. Isabelle Fuhrman, the "orphan" in the story, is absolutely amazing. No way of really discussing the insanity of this flick without spoiling it but let's just say that this is a strong contender my best of 2009 list. So, so, so look forward to spinning this on a future movie night. So. Fucked. Up.
And in the other corner comes The Uninvited (2009) a less inspired horror flick and remake of the much better K-horror thriller, Tale of Two Sisters. This isn't to say that this was a terrible film but it misses far more often than hits unfortunately.
