Case 39 (2009) Review

Case 39 was totally underrated and deserved a little more shine. We have a kind woman who works in cases of domestic abuse towards children. She has 38 cases currently that she is working on when she gets Case 39. She visits the family and gets a weird feeling from the parents. The child calls her, and she finds the family about to do terrible things to her. The parents get committed to prison and psyche wards. The child is then adopted, but weird things start to happen. People start dying and when she visits the father. She gets the chiller dialogue below… creepy. This scary movie tries to touch on the realism of horrors committed to children and then entangles you in a great plot involving demons.

Case 39 has a great quote when Edward Sullivan says:

They say when you’re born you’re given your eternal soul. The part of you that lives on, lives again. Whatever evil she is, didn’t come from us. It was already there. From the moment she came into being, she brought something with her. Something older, destructive. Soul of a demon.
