IN STORES NOW

After Kate (Vera Farmiga) and John (Peter Sarsgaard) adopt 9-year-old Esther (Isabelle Fuhrman), bad things happen: A schoolmate shatters her ankle, and a nun meets a bloody end. Is Kate imagining things or is the girl evil? There are some gaping plot holes and moments when sane folks would dial 911, but the thriller layers on the scares, Farmiga aces the hip mom-in-peril and the final twist delivers. (Warner Home Video, $29)
