    One of the Most Impressive One
    As for my rules in watching horror films, I first watch the first film and then it's sequel. I watched the Orphan and I liked it and the sequel -oh boy- it is flaming with one of the most badass origin story. I also just love how it has one of the best kills I have ever seen. It leaves some effects on you.

    I must say that the film also has that mystery in the first film but also implies some topics like you shouldn't really believe at a stranger, no matter what. It couldn't have been better. I also can say that this film has a thing that gives me creeps. I guess it is the lighting of Esther or her expressions. However, there is still much going on with these sequels.

    Impressive follow-up to the original
    I'll start by saying no, this movie isn't better or as good as the original. But, that doesn't make it bad. I feel like a lot of these reviews are holding the movie to unfairly high standards, instead of trying to appreciate it for what it is. And what it is is an entertaining horror thriller that definitely holds it own, and serves as a great prequel to the original.

    If you've watched Orphan, you'll notice this movie has a ton of similarities to the first one. However, it also manages to be different. It does a great job of balancing those two sides; in other words, it honors what made the original great, but also offers its own flair.

    The only thing that kind of threw me off is that the main actor is very obviously older, despite this being a prequel. But that's not a huge deal. If you liked the first movie, I'd definitely watch this one.
