Case 39

I didn't really intend on watching Case 39 (2009), but when I saw that Bradley Cooper was in it, I knew I had to watch it. Surely, if Bradley Cooper was in it, the movie would be okay, wouldn't it? Luckily he only had a minor role, because having this movie on his filmography is pretty bad.
Case 39 follows a similar story line to Orphan. Emily (Renee Zellweger) is a child welfare worker who stumbles upon the case of Lillith Sullivan, a young daughter of some mentally insane parents who continue to abuse her. When the parents are finally locked up, Emily petitions to have custody of Lillith. All seems well, but Lillith starts to act really strange. And it's no coincidence when strage things start to happen to the people in Emily's orbit.
One of the reasons I absolutely hated this movie was because of the unscary scares...I mean dying by being attacked by flies, really? Lillith may be one evil little kid, but it's this evilness which makes for some unintentional humour, mainly on her part. Renee Zellweger was terrible, as she was on auto-pilot right throughout the whole thing, only managing to squeeze out a few sceams and heated moments. As for Bradley Cooper, well his role was short-lived and didn't amount to anything special. Really, even if you're a fan of horror, please avoid this crap.

You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
