Format: DVD
Although this film starts off slowly, it soon develops into a great horror film mid way, and really cranks up the tension by the end. Yes this story line has been done many times in the past, but for me this was one of the better versions of this Omen style demonic horror tale. Renee Zellweger (Bridget Jones's Diary) was very strong as the lead, and didn't need to carry the whole film on her shoulders here thanks to the good supporting cast. Of note 15 year old co star Jodelle Ferland, who also voices the little sisters in the PC game Bioshock, was top notch as the Damien style character, she brought across the sweet innocence of a child & could turn into her alter ego superbly well at a drop of a hat, an actress to keep an eye on for sure. Ian McShane (Deadwood) , Bradley Cooper (The A-Team) & Adrian Lester (Hustle) add gravitas in support.

In conclusion, I liked the film allot to be fair, as i say, for me this was a nice, well presented/plot twist film considering the somewhat predictable story line. Obviously those who watch allot of horror films or have a high threshold for horror, wont flinch too much when the scary stuff starts to kick off, but those who don't will probably be sleeping with the lights on(and door bolted ?) ;0) Recommended.

My friends and I do film nights and I chose this film. None of us, including me, knew what to expect. We found it scary and had a good few screams along the way. We all agreed at the end that it was the best film we had watched in a long time. We loved the story and thought Zellweger was brilliant. We were also pleased to note that the priest wasn't called in, which sets it apart from other films of this genre. To be fair, we don't watch gory horror so if that is your thing then this would probably seem mild, but if you like a good story, good acting and some scary moments, then this is a great film.

This is a great movie the acting is fantastic. The bathroom scene where hornets come out of Bradley Cooper's character's ear is so scarey I could bearly watch. There is no blood and guts, so if you like slasher porn this is not for you, just good old fashioned horror at its best. Good buy!!!

Format: DVD
Case 39 is directed by Christian Alvart and written by Ray Wright. It stars Renee Zellwegger, Jodelle Ferland, Ian McShane and Bradley Cooper. Music is by Michl Britsch and cinematography by Hagen Bodanski.

Another in the long line of demonic/psycho children films, Case 39 sat on the shelf for a few years before finally seeing the light of day around 2009. Met with a whole bunch of negative reviews it is somewhat pleasing to find that while it’s not a misunderstood classic or anything, it actually works well within this sub-genre of horror.

Story in short order form has Zellwegger as Emily Jenkins, a social worker who after rescuing young Lilly Sullivan from crazed parents, takes her in on a temporary foster basis and soon comes to regret it.

Offering up a more supernatural slant than many other films of a similar ilk, German director Alvart does still follow the familiar formula for crazed child movies. Lillith (unsubtle name or what?!) serenely ingratiates herself into Emily’s world and that of the people around her, then of course things start happening, bad things. Having taken his time to build it up during the first half, Alvart then revels in unleashing demonic chaos, with young Ferland giving an unnervingly superb performance as Lilly. The shocks and psychological torments are tidily crafted, and it all builds to a suitably daft and frenetic finale.

It’s too long at nearly two hours in length, it’s sometimes silly and it’s cliché heavy. However, some striking scenes, a mightily strong child performance and the decent chiller thriller fun factor, lifts this just above average status. 6/10

Format: DVD
I liked very much the first 20 minutes of "Case 39" and if the rest of the movie could be as good, I would rate it five stars without hesitations. But in my purely personal opinion, the scenarist greatly blundered by revealing the main secret before even we wathed one third of the film - and the rest of the plot is simply quite predictable and frequently borrowed from other horror movies. Towards the end I simply grew bored.

That being said, "Case 39" is not devoided of qualities. Although not a big fan of Renee Zellweger, I must admit that I loved her performance in this one (the only time before when she impressed me was in the "Cold mountain") and even when the plot started to bore me, it was still a pleasure to watch her acting - especially in a role which is definitely not of her usual kind... also, I really would like that all the social workers have her devotion and courage.

But the real star of "Case 39" is of course Jodelle Ferland who plays Lily, the endangered child. I was already charmed by her performance as Bree Tanner in "Eclipse", but in this movie she showed an IMPRESSIVE talent! She is definitely somebody to watch with great attention, because we may very well have the next Natalie Portman here. And also it is almost impossible to believe, that this cute little girl is in fact 17...

Interaction between Renee Zellweger and Jodelle Ferland is a great show - they both gave the maximum and the result is very entertaining.

So to conclude, I think it is possible to watch "Case 39" and enjoy it, at the only condition that you are prepared that there will be a display of excellent acting by two very talented women, but with a storyline of which, after the first 20 minutes, you will be able to anticipate all the developments, because we all have seen them on the screen dozens of time before.
