The long and the short of it is that Orphan is exactly what you expect it to be. All of the cliches are there (the woman with the history of mental illness/alcoholism, the loving husband who is supportive of her through it all until she tries to warn him about an evil little girl, camera angles that imply danger when there is none... until they use the same angle again later on and there is danger).
Orphan is about 40 minutes too long and some aspects of the story don't make sense, but it is generally well acted and directed. If you want to see a serious horror movie there's no reason not to go see Orphan.
