ORPHAN (2009) Ending Explained

**No idea what is up with the comments. Seems like an error. Sorry folks**

In Orphan, after suffering a loss a couple decides to adopt a daughter - the seemingly innocent Esther. But it soon becomes clear as troubling dangerous events start occurring, Esther harbors a dark secret. We're breaking down the story, including just what is wrong with Esther, also with more backstory cut from the film, explaining the ending, and looking at what we know about the upcoming prequel Orphan: First Kill.

  • MushroomFiction

    Honestly I wasn’t all that sad when the dad died, he was dumb to me. I was 15 when I first saw the movie and it hasn’t changed.

    Love it how he suddenly crap movies made nowadays especially prequel‘s and how he became more skeptical when he heard that they were making another one which was a prequel and they were going to use CGI to enhance her looking younger since the actress is older now.

    So did they ever make this damn prequel? Double F seemed to know alot about it so where is it? Oh well, horror sequels mostly suck but every now and again there's a good #2(haha) in the series.

  • damnryn

    I remember seeing posters for this in Blockbuster when I was little. Creeped me tf out.

  • ChannelUmptyThree

    I suspect that Esther was also a savant given her skill in painting, playing piano, and the rapidity with which she learned sign language.

  • Cecil Benderman

    yall can rip on the husband all u want but who would u believe more? the wife u kno has endangered her children before and is a known alcoholic or the "child" uve never seen do anything wrong? plus the son had been uncomfortable with Esther from the beginning just bc he didnt want an adopted sibling, if he doesnt tell John the truth of why hes uncomfortable with her now, its perfectly reasonable for John to assume its just his son's general dislike of Esther, same with Max who was friends with Esther nd never expressed her discomfort to anyone, even when prompted. John's not an idiot for believing that the person he thinks is A Literal Child over the woman he knows struggles with alcoholism nd anger. we just think he is bc we kno that Esther really is evil bc the movie is from the mom's pov

    The biggest problem I have with this movie is how useless John is. He doesn't pick up on any clues, he can't stop a 9 year old from stabbing him over and over. It's just so unreal. There's stupid in horror, then there's John from Orphan.

    You made a mistake: It is clearly shown that when Kate kicked Esther in the face, she also snapped Esther’s neck, killing her.

    I watched the movie and skipped to the last part just for the satisfaction of it

    The husband got on my nerves I feel bad for Max and Daniel his wife is the only one in this movie who knows that Esther is not what she seems if he had just listen to her heck even the kids are too scared of her

    • John B aka Smooth Hot Chocolate
      John B aka Smooth Hot Chocolate

      Well when you think about it, the husband kind of deserved to be killed off only because of his blatant inability to put two and two together. And if Esther coming on to him STILL didn't get him to get the message, then you already knew that he was as good as dead when it was all over.

  • Marie Avril

    The movie is great but Esther's backstory is pretty messed up understandable how she turns the way she is right now

    I never really understood what was wrong with Esther like I think I kind of wish they explained more of what was wrong with Esther I hope they explain it more in a prequel

    I almost feel for Esther.. sort of. I have scoliosis that I was born with and I essentially stopped growing at 9. I’m very short snd young and I even sound young. It’s hard to feel like an adult woman when you look like a child. Like any decent man would not be attracted to a young child like looking human, it’s creepy. My mother who is my primary caregiver has even let it slip that she worries I would end up with a pedophile. Also her being small , and older than she looks would give her practice to learn how to use other people’s strength against them and overcome her own weaknesses to reach her goals.. of killing them.

    • Hex

      The orphan wasn’t based on that situation that happened way after the movie came out and besides the girl turned out to be 16 and it also turned out the parents made the whole thing up.

  • Mahailea Cartwright
    Mahailea Cartwright

    I think esther is physoctic but i think it her rare condition that adds on to that because she would never be seen as attractive to men except pedophiles so she was probably very angry at life and killed the men she couldn't seduce because she looked like a child.but she is really 33

  • Abhijit Majee

    One thing that triggers me the most in horror movies is the deliberate miscommunication from all parties. Like what the fuck happened to your love and understanding showed at the beginning of the movie. Just sit and talk clearly ffs and with proof! How hard can that be!

  • Abhijit Majee

    And the fact that there was actually a girl like Esther who was adopted by many families but later realized her adult-like mannerisms! How scary that is!

  • King Mojo

    I thought the orphan was okay but I don't know if they left stuff on The Cutting Room floor but they made the mother too unsympathetic she was just too unlikable for me. And I really felt they had Kate jump the gun too quickly in being suspicious of Esther. Kate didn't trust Esther even when they were at the orphanage so it makes you ask "why did they even pick her?" I think the movie would have been better is if the only person that knew that Esther was evil was the little girl until all hell broke loose at the end. And I think the movie would have ended better if Esther had killed everyone in the family except for the little deaf girl and The Little Death girl is the one to actually kill Esther.

    The lucky thing with Isabelle is that she still does look very young and is very petite. I still think there is a lot of room for it to look bad, but I'm not as concerned as I might normally be.

    My cousin was adopted from Russia, sadly though she wasnt an orphan. She was the 9th child in a russian family living in poverty and they left her at an orphanage . The bright side is her life now is WAY better than the lifestyle she would have had.
