I watched this a little while ago and whilst it wasn't the greatest of thrillers, it was easy enough to watch for a quiet night in snuggled under the duvet. Case 39 was directed by Christian Alvart, who has worked on a few things but Case 39 seems to be the first direction role title I recognise...

It turned out to be my second "evil kid" flick in the space of a week, but while it had its moments it wasn't nearly as good as the other one, "Orphan". In fact, when I...

ProA good horror watch with a great cast!

Consmake sure your in the mood for a horror!

A chilling film that in my opinion is a combination of 'The Ring' with an angle of 'One Missed Call' that certainly gives you the creeps about our advance in technology mixed with the wrath of a disturbed mind. The film plays cleverly on the tender topic of child abuse and incorporates the human...

Excellent

ProAmazing acting and great plot and setup.

ConsVery similar to "The Orphan" and "The Omen".

Case 39 was an AMAZING movie. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I definitely recommend this movie. The actors in the movie were very good. The story is also shocking at some point. It was very suspeneful. I went to see this movie late at night and I was very tired for some reason...
