The Daisy Chain (V) release date April 13 2010 studio ContentFilm Intl director Aisling Walsh writer Lauren MacKenzie starring Samantha Morton, Steven Mackintoish, Eva Birthistle Official Score: Average User Rating: ADD A USER REVIEW 2 comments Posted By MattSlash on April 17, 2010 @ 4:04 am Log in to Reply ★☆☆☆☆ A poor man’s Orphan in a way without the scares, violent kills and brilliant twist. The Daisy Chain started out pretty intriguing with a couple dealing with the loss of their newborn and two years later they’re expecting again and decide to move away from the city and to the husbands childhood home and things start to get strange and freaky after they meet a troubled, autistic child named Daisy who may or may not be a changeling. The movie was just very generic and a knockoff with weak, lackluster acting, uninspired filming, it was boring!!! All of the answers to my questions at the end of the movie were thrown out the window and makes us figure it out which makes me despise it and what the heck does the cover art for this film have anything to do with it, very misleading because it makes it look like it’s going to be a horror movie but it’s not it’s more psychological bore! The movie is completely unnecessary and a waste of time and it also reminds me of another movie called Dorothy Mills and even that movie manages to outshine this one. Overall this is nothing near fresh and riveting though it did have a tiny bit of potential somewhere in it but it’s pretty much dead on arrival. Skip it!

In fact it’s insulting to compare it to the brilliance of Orphan! It has terrible acting and some really annoying characters, especially the mum! Somewhere in the middle things quickly turn into nonsense with the orphan being alluded to that of a fairy. I thought fairies were nice!? The film could’ve only slightly revived itself in the way of a great reveal, but nothing is revealed and were all none the wiser. Ambiguity can be great when it’s done right (Calvaire) but otherwise it just looks like lazy writing (which it is). The worse thing about it, is that it’s not even entertaining. It’s boring and I wouldn’t bother wasting time on it! Seek out Orphan instead!
