We were first introduced to Esther in the 2009 campy horror underrated classic, Orphan. A young Isabelle Fuhrman played the homicidal child adopted by a wealthy family after their own tragedy. Now, Esther is back in the upcoming prequel, Orphan: First Kill. While we don’t have a trailer yet, we do have a first look at the poster and Fuhrman’s reaction to seeing the trailer.
In Orphan: First Kill:
Leena Klammer (aka Esther) orchestrates a brilliant escape from an Estonian psychiatric facility and travels to America by impersonating the missing daughter of a wealthy family. But Leena’s new life as “Esther” comes with an unexpected wrinkle and pits her against a mother who will protect her family at any cost.
Julia Stiles also stars in the film as the mother who adopts Esther, unaware of her true identity.
Director William Brent Bell (The Boy) took to Instagram to share a first look at the film’s poster:
Fuhrman also took to Instagram stories to tease she just watched the trailer and, according to her, “you guys are gonna freak out”:
An alleged photo also recently leaked of Fuhrman in Orphan: First Kill on Reddit, from user murilofontes1:
No word yet on a release date, but hopefully we’ll get it this year. As always, check back to Dread Central for any updates!
