10/7/2010 by Ethan GilsdorfIt's a bummer when the audience is smarter than the protagonist.
10/6/2010 by Nick SchagerFrom a bevy of cheesy jolt scares (alarm clock! barking dog!) to the embarrassing sight of Zellweger and Ian McShane treating this Orphan-style B-movie silliness with grave seriousness, the film proves to be one hokey-horror riot.
New York Times
10/5/2010 by Jeannette CatsoulisBy the time the killings start, it's clear that Ray Wright's screenplay is more interested in following formula than in breaking new ground.
10/4/2010 by Frank ScheckThe devil made them do it, but that doesn't mean you have to see it.
Los Angeles Times
10/2/2010 by Robert Abele[Plays] like one more piece of multiplex in-box clutter, ready for the circular file in our moviegoing consciousness.
10/2/2010 by Chris NashawatyAn aggressively inept demon-seed chiller starring a bunch of grown-ups who should've known better.
9/30/2010 by Jordan MintzerThis ludicrous outing from helmer Christian Alvart and scribe Ray Wright takes its psycho-satanic babble much too seriously, and should elicit more laughs than frights.
3/5/2010 by Nigel FloydThis is horror hokum of the cheesiest kind. Rent 'Orphan' instead.

11/5/2009 by Ruth HesseyThis is a nasty and morally repulsive film.

9/9/2017 by Candice FrederickAlmost identical to 2009's Orphan, Case 39 does little keep your attention as its riddled with cliches--menacing music, domino casualties, and predictable horror plotline.
Matt's Movie Reviews
3/5/2014 by Matthew PejkovicA soulless amalgamation of several horror classics, and marks another dud in the career of Renee Zellweger.
We Got This Covered
11/9/2013 by Matt JosephDespite its initial premise showing promise, Case 39 turns out to be boring, predictable and nothing new.
1/29/2013 by Roger MooreThe end of Zellweger as we've known her.
9/23/2012 by Jeff BeckWhile it's able to pull you in at some points with its eerie mood, it needed a lot more originality and better scares than the cheap kind of just having things pop up out of nowhere.
4/4/2011 by Dave White[A] dumb thriller.
Reel Film Reviews
1/30/2011 by David Nusair...a decent little horror flick...
1/26/2011 by Staci Layne WilsonDirected by Christian Alvart (Pandorum) with a less than giddy hand, Case 39 is truly terrible. But at least it scores a few 'so bad it's good' points.
1/16/2011 by R.L. ShafferNot only is Case 39 deplorable and morally off-center, the film is dull to boot.
1/9/2011 by Scott WeinbergWhat starts out as slight and fairly obvious turns into a frequently colorful horror tale.
12/24/2010 by John J. PuccioNeither the the direction acting nor is the problem here. It's the script that does the picture in. (Blu-ray Edition)
