After escaping from a psychiatric facility in Estonia, 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 at any cost.
Orphan: First Kill is a 2022 American psychological horror film directed by William Brent Bell, from a screenplay by David Coggeshall, and a story by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick and Alex Mace. It is a prequel to the 2009 film Orphan. The film stars Isabelle Fuhrman, Julia Stiles and Rossif Sutherland.
The first film featured a then 11-year old Fuhrman as Esther, a 9-year-old Russian girl adopted by Kate and John Coleman (Vera Farmiga and Peter Saarsgard).
Initially seeming like a polite and well-mannered child, Esther quickly displays disturbing and violent behavior, as well as knowledge of culture, sex and philosophy well beyond the capacity of a regular adolescent child.
The prequel we’re assuming, dives into the origins of Esther.
Orphan: First Kill hits theaters August 19.
