Orphan: First Kill Trailer Brings Back Isabelle Fuhrman’s Esther
Published 7 months ago
Orphan came out back in 2009 and instilled a fear of little Russian girls, and though Isabelle Fuhrman is clearly too old to pass for a 9-year-old, they managed to bring her back for the prequel Orphan: First Kill.
Check out the chilling trailer:
The official synopsis reads:
Esther’s terrifying saga continues in this thrilling prequel to the original and shocking horror hit, Orphan. After orchestrating a brilliant escape from an Estonian psychiatric facility, Esther travels to America by impersonating the missing daughter of a wealthy family. Yet, an unexpected twist arises that pits her against a mother who will protect her family from the murderous “child” at any cost.
I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn’t seen the first film yet, but I’m hoping that the movie has another huge twist to reveal besides the one we got about Esther in the original Orphan. If anything, the premise seems just like the first movie—only this time, Esther has found another way to smuggle herself into a family.
While some may think that Fuhrman may be too old to play the role now, some fans have actually pointed out that the uneasiness they get from her appearance in the trailer means that having her reprise the role was the right decision. If you know Esther’s secret, you could even say she looks more accurate to the role as compared to the original where Fuhrman was still an actual child.
Orphan: First Kill premieres on Paramount+ on Aug. 19.
