Orphan First Kill is prequal of the movie Orphan from 2009. We see more of back story of Esther. After orchestrating a brilliant escape from an Estonian psychiatric facility, Esther travels to America by impersonating the missing daughter of a wealthy family. Yet, an unexpected twist arises that pits her against a mother who will protect her family from the murderous “child” at any cost.
Ending Explained (Spoiler Alert!)
First Orphan movie was one big set up for big surprises at the end of the movie. The surprise was that Esther wasn’t a child but old woman with mental disorder. I was glad to see that Orphan First Kill also has big surprise that reveals towards end of the movie.
In Orphan First Kill, Esther pretend to be a missing child and re-united with a wealthy family in America. The surprise is that the son of the family accidently killed his sister and the mother covered it up. Meanwhile, the dad is completely out of the loop of what was going on . So Esther being there, the mother knew right away that she was imposter. So she tried to kill Esther. So in a away, Esther become a victim instead of villain.
By the way, Esther looks lot older than the first movie. It didn’t make sense because she supposed to be younger version of Esther from first movie. But I digress.
The story of older kid pretending to be a missing child and re-united with family isn’t a new concept. There is a documentary movie called “Imposter”, had pretty much exactly same story that happened in real life.
Of course, we know how the movie ends. Esther can’t be murdered because her story continues in first movie. At the end, Esther was able to escape from them by killing the whole family.
