If you've seen any of the trailers or posters for Paramount's long overdue 'Case 39,' then you may think that it's just another thriller about an innocent adult who lets a not-so-innocent little kid into their home. I assure you it is not. Much as director Christian Alvert's most recent film, 'Pandorum,' looked like just another horror film set on a spaceship, there's actually much more than expected going on underneath 'Case 39's' surface.
If you need some empirical evidence to back up that claim, Moviefone has been given an exclusive (and very cool) clip from the film to debut. But first, a synopsis:
"Prompted to rescue ten-year-old Lillith Sullivan (Jodelle Ferland) from her parents after allegations of abuse suggest that the child is not safe in her own home, kind-hearted social worker Emily Jenkins (Renée Zellweger) discovers to her horror that the situation is far deadlier than she ever suspected. Ian McShane and Bradley Cooper also star in the thriller from Antibodies director Christian Alvart."
