The last story I posted about this film was that it was being re-edited because preview audiences were screaming so much. Now at last, following a teaser a few months ago, is the full trailer for Nicholas McCarthy’s new horror The Prodigy. Films about evil children are plentiful, but if The Pact was anything to go by, than McCarthy will put a fresh spin on the idea.
In her much-anticipated foray into the horror-thriller genre, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Taylor Schilling stars as Sarah, a mother whose young son Miles’ disturbing behavior signals that an evil, possibly supernatural force has overtaken him. Fearing for her family’s safety, Sarah must choose between her maternal instinct to love and protect Miles and a desperate need to investigate what or who is causing his dark turn. She is forced to look for answers in the past, taking the audience on a wild ride; one where the line between perception and reality becomes frighteningly blurry.
Jeff Buhler writes, and Taylor Schilling, Jackson Robert Scott, Brittany Allen, Colm Feore and Peter Mooney star. The release date is February 8, 2019.
