* HilariousInHindsight: An episode of DrKatzProfessionalTherapist had Dr. Katz and his son [[spoiler: humorously discuss horror movies where the killers were midgets. Titles (to the best of my memory) included "I'm Short, But You're Dead" and "Don't Step On My Toes, Or I'll Kill You!"]]

Added DiffLines:

* UnfortunateImplication: The film was severely [[http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2009/07/15/demon-orphan.html criticized]] for its stereotypical portrayal of older adopted children, calling it cliche for portraying them as violent and cruel.

* CompleteMonster: [[TheFakeCutie Esther]] is adopted by the Coleman family after their newest child is stillborn. Esther pushes a bully off a slide causing her to break her ankle, tries to play RussianRoulette with the [[WouldHurtAChild young daughter Max]], [[DropTheHammer kills a nun who is suspicious of her]], threatens to [[GroinAttack castrate the family's son Daniel]] if he tells anyone about what he saw, [[KickTheDog reads a page describing how the mother Kate's latest child was stillborn to her out loud (and presents Kate with the stillborn kid's dedication bouquet as a "gift")]], and tries to cause a rift in Kate's marriage with John. When Daniel attempts to retrieve evidence proving Esther killed the nun, Esther sets the place on fire to try and kill him, and [[SickbedSlaying later tries to smother him at the hospital]]. It's later revealed that Esther is a [[spoiler:dwarf posing as a child, is really named Leena Klammer]], and killed two previous families that adopted her after failing to seduce the father, and was planning to kill the rest of the family to have John to herself. When John refuses her advances, she kills him and attempts to kill Max when she sees this. When Kate and Esther fall into a frozen lake and Kate manages to pull herself out, Esther [[VillainsWantMercy begs Kate to save her]] yet has a knife behind her back [[UngratefulBastard clearly intending to murder Kate if she decided to rescue her]].
