Stranger with my Face
While Orphan got all the hoopla because it was on the big screen, this is also a film about a dangerous, homicidal adoptee.
After the death of her father Laurie is haunted. then her mother suddenly tells her: She was a twin and they only adopted her and left her twin sister. That's who's haunting her!
It goes on with outer body soul travel and gives new meaning to "good adoptee/bad adoptee" or the classic good twin/bad twin archetype.
Adoption - though central to the plot - is made almost non-existent as an issue, with no one addressing whether her "sister" was likewise adopted! A really dumb movie!
