This movie is insane! -in a good way! My friends told me all about this movie but the ending! No spoiler here. Horror/suspense fans this is a MUST! Esther gets my vote as ALL time creepiest kid!!!!! Peter Sarsgaard is amazing as usual. Please watch, and as usual-THIS IS NOT FOR KIDS!

excellent suspensful thriller. the young actress, isabelle fuhrman was phenominal. the parents, played by peter saarsgard and vera farmiga, as well as the two siblings are amazing as well. orphan never has a dull moment and the twist at the end was wicked. good movie for older teens and adults. lots of sex, brief female nudity(shown in a porn magazine) grim violence, frightening scenes, and
