    It ticks all of the evil child clichés and practically every bad thing Esther does is foreshadowed so massively there's barely a surprise in the whole film... well, maybe apart from one... but it really works, mostly thanks to a decent script and some great performances by Vera Farmiga and Isabelle Fuhrman, as well as partially deaf Aryana Engineer who plays the youngest daughter Max. It's genuinely creepy, and the tension builds extremely well thanks to the kids' performances and Farmiga's increasing desperation and loss of control - it's just a shame that the final showdown between mother and adopted daughter is so silly and formulaic, with the script suddenly losing all of it's originality. spoiler. Still, ending aside, it's much smarter than your average modern horror movie. 7 years 4 months ago
