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.

The only reason I’m giving it two stars is because that little boy carried this movie. Interesting concept, poor execution and zero gratification.

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.
