The Prodigy is a 2019 Orion Pictures,Vinson Films is scheduled to be released on February 8, 2019.
Throughout the history of horror movies, there have been few children who were able to freeze our blood, from the little Gage in Pet Sematary (1989) to the infants of Children of the Corn (1984) and Village of The Damned (1995), have made it clear that evil comes in all presentations and of all sizes. Now, next year will be the turn of Miles, who promises to be a new icon of the genre thanks to The Prodigy, by director Nicholas McCarthy.
When Miles (Jackson Robert Scott), a boy of just eight years of age begins to have rather strange behaviors, his mother Sarah (Taylor Schilling) suspects that he has been possessed by malignant presences. Because of this the woman asks for help from a hypnotist to discover who or what is inside her son, although far from helping him, maybe this fact can unleash the real horror.
After directing The Pact (2012) and At the Devil's Door (2014), McCarthy returns to horror with this film whose script was in charge of Jeff Buhler, who was responsible for writing the next version of Pet Sematary (2019). In addition, as a producer he has Tripp Vinson, who was already involved in The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005), so the possessions and sinister children are guaranteed in The Prodigy.
