Some cases should never be opened.
In her many years as a social worker, Emily Jenkins believes she has seen it all, until she meets 10-year-old Lilith and the girl's cruel parents. Emily's worst fears are confirmed when the parents try to harm the child, and so Emily assumes custody of Lilith while she looks for a foster family. However, Emily soon finds that dark forces surround the seemingly innocent girl, and the more she tries to protect Lilith, the more horrors she encounters.
Not a lot of scares, essentially ripping off many a film before itself. All about a child who is actually a demon and starts killing people, youve seen it a hundred times before. The child actress was pretty good, i dont really enjoy Renee Zellweger as an actress, so i didnt really care about what happened to anyone in the film. I wont be watching it again.
Mediocre horror at best. It's hard to say anything about this movie without spilling the beans on plot twists, even though it's completely apparent in the first five minutes. I will give credit to the baddie. When they want to be scary they do a good job. Sadly, Zellweger does not complete me or my need for entertainment on this night.
It’s a Psychological horror with confusion between reality and imagination.
Nice style of naming a movie, by the case number of children service, i.e. Case 39. Lily is the girls’ name who is facing a psychological disorder and hallucinations that her parents are not behaving properly with her. By the way the Girl really acted awesome, she really freaked me out when she is taking interview of Bradley Cooper. After that incident brad gets furiously dead, by Honey bees. Towards the end many people were dead. And the climax looked like predictable.
The movie reminded me to the movie with the same plot, i.e. Orphan.
Rating 2.5 out of 5
Another PSA on the dangers of adopting children with dark hair and pale skin. But I liked this one.
"Some cases should never be opened", OMG, it's true!
Predictable, rote, and ultimately forgettable, yet I still found it very compelling to unfold, largely aided by one of Zellweger's best performances and great supporting roles from Bradley Cooper and Ian McShane.
Good but not great. Some good actors give mediocre performances. There are a few intense moments but they are few and far between.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Not worthy... especially because of Zellweger, really not credible in this role.
The story itself is not that bad, but main actress void facial expression and flat performance makes this movie a pain to be seen
An alright movie, fairly boring plot, but Jodelle Ferland is excellent as the little girl.
