The award-winning Orphan films.

Oscar buzz is building around queer pop icon, Esther, and the long awaited sequel to Orphan, O2phan (official title).

It was made available to stream on Peacock on the US this past week. It's coming to the UK in the next two weeks.

Surely the franchise will just continue to grow and expand at an incredible pace due to the fervent reception that the first two, heart-wrenching films have received.

Join Esther as she exposes the perils, lies and manipulation of the foster care system. She bravely challenges patriarchal family structures and, most importantly, makes us question society's ageist views.

Also she's a sociopath.
 
Vera Farmiga and Julia Stiles as your adopted mothers? The other Orphans could neva.

When I went to see the first film in a packed screening, the cinema's air conditioning broke, so as the film ramped up and up, the theatre got warmer and warmer.
By the end everyone was having a hot, sweaty, great time watching a new camp classic before them

(And we got a free ticket for next time)

I've been meaning to share my two cents about this since I saw the prequel but the thing that keeps coming back to me was how the director cared so much to make sure the angle and shots were from a distance or helpful enough to hide the girl who plays Esther's height but then in the third act, he was like fuck it, you should know by now she's not an actual child!
 
O2phan was a goddamn delight. You won’t find a more enjoyable cinematic experience. Esther cements herself alongside Michael, Freddy, Debbie Salt, Gabriel, Jason, Brenda Bates and Ma as one of the defining icons of the horror genre. Shockingly, Julia Stiles truly holds her own in this and serves as a perfect foil to Mama E. The twist had me gooped, and despite the final act feeling a bit anti-climatic, I was incredibly entertained from start to finish. You won’t laugh harder in 2022 than you will seeing O2phan: First Foster Family Takedown (but also, not really because it’s made clear that Esther has done this before).
 
LOVED THIS! I was living through it all but that twist was *chef kiss* never saw it coming, but then after the movie I suddenly remembered a Netflix documentary about a kid doing the same, probably where they took the idea from.

The kid lied about being the missing child only to find out the brother killed him and the family was covering it up, so they all went with it

However this was executed to perfection, they played it out great, making you think you know where things are going. I'm also living for Isabelle who looks like was having a blast on set and so happy to return, you can feel the love in this silly movie.

Honestly they should make 3 more movies back to back and cement Ester as the killer icon she already is! I would be there on premiere day.
 
Yeah, this was pretty great, in all its assumed campy glory. I laughed a bit too much, kept thinking about this post:

Esther jamming to Maniac and smoking while driving just made my day.

No way. The Imposter, based on my Googling? If so, absolutely will watch.

I loved the second movie. Julia Stiles made me feel very "I say that's my baby and I'm proud dot gif." What a HOOT.
