* RootingForTheEmpire: It's easy to root for Esther despite the fact she's batshit insane because A) She's a MagnificentBastard and B) Isabelle Fuhrman's performance. Not to mention most of the protagonists- except for maybe [[CuteMute Max]] come off as whiny and annoying to some.

** [[Film/TheHungerGames Esther moved on to terrorising tributes, and this time she does kill a child.]]

Added DiffLines:

* UncannyValley: The poster for the film, which is a mirrored image of Esther. Pretty much a good example of why faces are meant to be asymmetrical.

** Even extends to her attempt at [[spoiler: seduction.]] [[spoiler: She's in the age range for MyBiologicalClockIsTicking but CantHaveSexEver thanks to [[NotGrowingUpSucks looking like a]] [[{{Lolicon}} 9-year-old]].]] Probably gets a ''little'' frustrating.

Added DiffLines:

** The plaque and incredibly [[{{Glurge}} Glurgy]] poem dedicated to Jessica.


Added DiffLines:

** Sister Abigail's murder. When the police find her body, her face has been reduced to mush.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainHasAPoint: Esther calling out Kate on how she doesn't deserve her family does have merit, considering Max almost died because Kate got piss drunk and drove the car into the lake and how she and Jon pretty much do nothing but spoil Daniel.
* WhatAnIdiot: Kate, Kate, Kate! Yes, when you're already looking suspicious and like a lunatic, why not buy some wine and then try hiding it somewhere obvious? [[SarcasmMode People won't think you're relapsing at all!]] Plus when Jon and the therapist confront Kate, she starts crying and whining that her children are the only reason she's sober and that she wants to kill herself when she thinks about what happened to Max. Jon points out how manipulative this sounds and it only makes her look desperate and crazy.

* 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.
