Thanks to one Mr. Jon Schnaars the entire podcast team will be heading out to the theaters this weekend to watch “Orphan”. I have to say when I first saw the trailer before “Drag Me To Hell” this past May I groaned loud enough for the people in the next theater to hear me. But with the film's release coming today we’re seeing a lot of decent reviews popping up. Even the bad ones are saying the film is pretty entertaining. Not to mention the controversy the film has caused with countless adoption groups, even sparking an "I Am Boycotting Warner Bros. Orphan Movie" group on Facebook that currently has over 4,000 members.
You can’t help but compare the film to the 1993 Macaulay Culkin flick “The Good Son”. The biggestg difference is that Isabelle Fuhrman is a hell of a lot creepier looking than Mr. Home Alone ever was. So this one might turn out to be a hit for the crew. We’ll find out next week. At the very least there is no way it can be worse then Mark’s pick of “Shriek Of the Mutilated”.
