Case 39 (2009)

Overall, I like this one. It’s not too graphic (though I’d hesitate to recommend it if you’re squeamish around bugs) and it’s well acted with an interesting story. Not the most original of stories, but an interesting one nonetheless.

Jodelle Ferland plays the creepy little girl just so damn well. But let’s be honest — if you name your daughter Lilith, you’re kind of asking for evil demon trouble, aren’t you? I can never tell if I like Renée Zellweger or not and this one definitely didn’t make the decision for me. She was okay, but I just wasn’t feeling it — I have to assume it’s partly because her character is kind of an idiot in this.

It was nice to see Bradley Cooper in this as well! He’s always a delight (yes, that’s what I said). Oh, and Ian McShane, who looks vaguely familiar but not familiar enough for me to look him up, is also in this as Detective Mike Barron, who may be my favorite character of the film.

It’s not perfect — there are some pacing issues and the music gets a bit much — but it’s a pretty good scary movie!
