Confessions of a Film Junkie: A review of “Daddy’s Girl”
By: Brian Cotnoir
The 1996 Horror movie “Daddy’s Girl” is one of the worst attempts I have seen of someone trying to make a film. The synopsis of the film is something totally unoriginal and it is something that we have seen in other horror films before; a loving suburban family adopts a seemingly sweet, innocent, and harmless orphan girl to raise as their own. The child appears to be absolutely perfect, but then something in them snaps and the child starts the slow ascent into the “Electra complex” and starts killing people who try to take their father away from them, while at the same time trying to show off their childlike innocence and charm in public.

I’ve seen this kind of story done in other films before and I’ve even seen a few of them done well, but “Daddy’s Girl” doesn’t even come close being a good film; this film makes “Case 39” look like “Silence of the Lambs” it’s that bad. This film could have had potential but instead it to remain as a speck on the excrements of what is a truly awful horror film.
