A social assistant, Emily (Zellweger), rescues of a conflicting home to the small Lilith (Jodelle Ferland), after their parents tried to assassinate it. It only seems to be another lamentable case of familiar violence. But, certain attitudes of the girl, cause that Emily suspects that there is something sinister when, not less, diabolic in his traumatized psiquis; something supernatural that terrifies its parents and damages to all that one whom it is crossed in his way, even, to that they try to want it.
The German Christian Alvart (Pandorum) makes debut like director in Hollywood with this tape of suspension, realized rather well, but that does not surpass the average of this type of products and he is located below recent (and enough superior) “the orphan?.

The best thing: Jodelle Ferland, a serious promise.
The worse thing: that eternal face gesture of Zellweger, type: “I am becoming lean a lemon?.

Qualification: PASSABLE
