Case 39

6/10
Thriller . Mystery . Horror
 

In her many years as a social worker, Emily Jenkins believes she has seen it all, until she meets 10-year-old Lilith and the girl's cruel parents. Emily's worst fears are confirmed when the parents try to harm the child, and so Emily assumes custody of Lilith while she looks for a foster family. However, Emily soon finds that dark forces surround the seemingly innocent girl, and the more she tries to protect Lilith, the more horrors she encounters.

  • Michelle Orange

    There is enough lurid, ludicrous subtext in the material to keep fans of such things happy. As trash, this is top of the line.

  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    Radiating a distinctly retro vibe, this throwaway thriller from the German director Christian Alvart tosses a bone to Renée Zellweger, who chews it to a nub as Emily Jenkins, a harried social worker.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Ian Nathan

    Manages to be both very silly and highly forgettable. Only for those who collect killer-children films.

    Empire Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It's only a movie, and not a remotely effective one. And for Zellweger, whose "Miss Potter" and "Appaloosa" were barely seen, with "Leatherheads" and "New in Town" further deflating her A-list clout, that's the real shame here.

  • Ethan Gilsdorf

    Introduce the supernatural, and anything goes. Here, everything does. And that's a problem no one can solve. At least it wasn't called "Case 666."

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Jordan Mintzer

    This ludicrous outing from helmer Christian Alvart ("Pandorum") and scribe Ray Wright ("The Crazies") takes its psycho-satanic babble much too seriously, and should elicit more laughs than frights.

    Variety Full Review
  • Pam Grady

    A mess of a horror movie that spent several years sitting on a shelf and should have remained there living up to its fullest potential as a dust magnet.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    One can't help experiencing the same dread about the exhausting flood of lackluster horror films that swamp our screens and, as Case 39 unfolds, realizing we're enduring one more.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    Director Christian Alvart ("Pandorum") is unable to invest much stylization into the proceedings, and Ray Wright's by-the-book screenplay only serves as a reminder of the innumerable demon-child movies that have preceded this one.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Chuck Wilson

    Has there ever been a more inept trio of big-city caseworkers? Go ahead, Lilith. Unleash the hounds.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Zellweger has come an awful long way since Matthew McConaughey terrorized her in "Texas Chainsaw Masscare": The Next Generation, but not quite as far as she might like to imagine.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    From a bevy of cheesy jolt scares (alarm clock! barking dog!) to the embarrassing sight of Zellweger and Ian McShane treating this Orphan-style B-movie silliness with grave seriousness, the film proves to be one hokey-horror riot.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Neither so awful as to be enjoyable nor eerily artful enough to be anything other than a snoozy also-ran in the perpetually poor plotting machine that is the demon-child cinematic subgenre.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    An aggressively inept demon-seed chiller starring a bunch of grown-ups who should've known better.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Leigh Paatsch

    This movie is so self- combustingly bad it could never be good. But it's damn great fun to watch the thing go up in flames anyway.
