The Orphan Killer (2011/Reelgore Blu-ray w/DVD)

Picture: B/C+ Sound: B/C+ Extras: C Film: C

Matt Farnsworth's low budget horror flick introduces a new slasher villain into the fold (who is apparently quite popular on social media platforms) - The Orphan Killer (2011). Wearing a creepy mask akin to Jason or Michael Myers, he also talks a lot like Freddy, with some ridiculous puns muttered during torture scenes - he's also an 'urban legend' much like Mr. Krueger as well.

The film stars Diane Foster, David Bachaus, Karen Young, James McCaffrey, Charlotte Maier, Dana DeVestern, and John Savage.

The Orphan Killer has no emotion and no remorse towards the poor orphans that cross his path. Hellbent on killing his sister, The Orphan Killer soon finds that she is a formidable match to him as the two cross the line of murder and death.

This Blu-ray combo pack features the film in sharp 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and a nice sounding, lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 mix (DTS-HD 2.0 also included on the disc). For being an independent film, the transfer isn't half bad with primarily natural tones throughout and an almost greenish tint to the day scenes. Also included is the standard definition DVD with an anamorphic widescreen aspect ratio of 2.35:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track.

Special Features include...

Reel Gore Girls insert card

The Orphan Killer checks off the list of slasher film necessities with gore, torture, and some nudity, but ultimately doesn't craft an experience that stands on its own but is more an inspiration of films to which we are already familiar.
