The film shows through psychology to understand the Oedipus complex, a lot of issues of this kind to establish the concept of the Oedipus complex.. The love for his mother, followed by hatred for his father.
While it has moments of dark humor and the requisite scares, Orphan fails to build on its interesting premise and degenerates into a formulaic, sleazy horror/thriller.
