Atom User Reviews for The Prodigy
this movie was an edge of your seat creepy and also a few good jump scenes ....
Where’s the horror? Not what was expected, waste of money. 🤷🏾♀️
Don't spend your money
Movie was better then I thought it would be! Definitely go see this movie!
Not a satisfying ending
The only reason I’m giving it two stars is because that little boy carried this movie. Interesting concept, poor execution and zero gratification.
I hope a second part comes out.
I seriously did not expect this movie to be as good as it was I loved it
Went into this movie with rather low expectations. Tbh we expected it to suck but it was actually so good, scary and completely cringe-worthy. Definitely a must see!
All in all, this was a good movie. It was definitely theater worthy in my opinion although it was highly predictable. To me it was anyway.
I enjoyed this movie, it was very suspenseful.
I liked it more than I thought I would. Typical jump scares. The kid actor did a great job of being creepy and really pulled it off. The "twist" at the end wasn't that surprising. It was a little heartbreaking, but again not that surprising. It was like The Omen and Orphan mixed together.
The plot is not scary but it will feel creepy
Great movie! towards the beginning it was a little boring but middle and last parts were great. the creepiness/scare/ suspense was a C+, could've been a little better. but overall okay movie
Didnt like how it ended but it was good
Not the best ending
The ending was predictable
The movie plot was very slow. I was expecting it to be scary but it wasn’t. But one thing is, the cliff hanger left me wanting to see part two when it comes out in a few years.
I loved it!!!
Okay ! Let’s start by saying this movie is SCARY ! as a scary movie fan. Their haven’t been a lot of scary movie lately it’s like scary movie was lost. But this is actually scary and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I was jumping the whole movie almost slipped my slushy almost 😉 5 out of 5 !
It is cring worthly in the aspect of what the child goes through. But otherwise no charcter development, 2 -3 scary scenes and a lot of unanswered questions if you dont understand certain things.
starts slow but picks up.
It wasn't the best, but it wasn't the worst.
Kept me up!!
It had two.scenes that made me jump. The ending sets up a sequel. I saw it using a free ticket on the Atom app so-no complaints.
Definitely Netflix worthy
Good movie just not scary at all! The kid was creepy as heck....
What if your kid’s body was taken over by a murderer? Well don’t worry because that can’t really happen. Or can it?!
I liked the fact it wasn't too predictable. It was a little creepy.
no dull moment
Remarkably cliche. The moms last line, the super dramatic “nnno...nnnnnnoooo...” was some of the worst acting I’ve ever seen. I mean it literally tells you what’s going on, and why...but doesn’t explain the killer and his urges nearly enough. Just confusing, cheesy, and all around stupid.
First half was a little slow but picked up in the second.
Rated it a five because although most horror movies involve kids the plot was original and the guy sitting next to us made it quite funny other than that pretty good !!
This movie is actively horrific 💗💗💗
It was amazing
On the edge of my seat
could have been more intense
I liked that it wasn't the typical exorcist type possession. Great for thinkers. Little boy needs a spanking for sure.
this movie was a waste of time and money
it was okay...could have been way better. should have been pg-13.
Sorryyyyyyy! Honestly you can wait til it come out on redbox.
Be warned, It is not a scary movie. The actors made some very stupid decisions in the movie, that normal real life people just won't make. By the way, the ending sucked, looked like it's leaving room for a sequel.
The movie wasnt that good. Alot of awkward acting moments and decisions
Don’t like this kind of ending....
some parts of the movie could have been better.
I Personally did not like the ending very much!
Enjoyed the movie, very creepy!
The other people in the theater made it boring by making stupid comments continuously
awesome movie, had me on my toes the entire time.
sadly, not scary
Really liked it. The movie was much better than the preview for it.
For an hour and a half, it was something of a slow burn. But yeah, that kid was creepy as hell, he was great.
Actually ended up leaving, moving made no sense.
Movie was okay. Definitely wasn’t intense enough.
Don’t waste your money/time. Third time in my life I walked out of a movie! Would love a refund! Terribly boring!
Another stroke of casting fortune was landing Scott as the disturbing Miles. I hesitate to applaud any business decision that encourages a kid to channel the spirit of a rapist and murderer, but the young actor accomplishes what I can only assume The Prodigy set out to do: make you reconsider parenthood, and just how much paprika you should stock.
The film’s cardinal sin isn’t so much that it’s unoriginal as that it’s so uninvolving it almost assures attention deficit will set in early.
The Prodigy may offer some shocks to those susceptible to this genre, or who have never seen it before, but to horror fans it will probably seem unremarkable and even bland.
