Emily was a social worker. she fought to save a girl, Lilly, from her abusive parents. after having Lilly's psychotic parents locked up in prison, she took an interest in the child when Lilly requested to live with her while waiting to be adopted. it got more n more obvious that Lilly was not who she appeared to be. neither were her parents mentally crazy when they intended to destroy her.
tension increased rapidly throughout the film, especially when it reached a point where it was so clear where the story was heading. yet knowing doesn't reduce its edginess at all. some scenes were so creepy it was difficult not to look around ourselves, making sure the kid was nowhere near us. at that point, the psychological taunt presented was awesome. we didn't have too much of a fright, yet enjoyed a good chill down our spine.
