Another Creepy Kid Horror Flick
I’ll say this for Renee Zellwegger, at least: She bounces around in a lot of genres. She does dramas (One True Thing), westerns (Appaloosa), period pieces (Cinderella Man, The Hours), romantic comedies (Bridget Jones), romantic-comedy period pieces (Leatherheads), musicals (Chicago), and now she’s even doing a horror flick, this one of the creepy kid variety.
In Case 39, Zellwegger plays a social worker who fights to save a little girl from her abusive parents, only it turns out that it’s the little girl who is the abusive one. It gets all paranormal horror-y, and Bradley Cooper bites it bee-vomit style. Ian McShane also stars, as a cop, cause cop’s are awesome against demon children. It’s been in post-production for three years (which probably explains why Bradley Cooper would take a smaller role),and that’s a particularly good omen (ha! *groan*) for the flick. It comes from German director Christian Alvart.
