Movie Review: The Prodigy

The Prodigy (2019)

Rated R


Time: 1hr 31 mins.

It is hard to make a good scary movie nowadays. With that being said, “The Prodigy” lived up to the little hype it received prior to its release. The film is about a young couple whose son is possessed by a serial killer’s soul. The mother, played by Taylor Schilling, seeks professional help from Dr. Jacobson, played by Colm Feore, to help save the soul of her eight year old son. Throughout the plot of the film, it is revealed that the serial killer is possessing the boy so he can carry out his mission to kill one of his former victims that manage to escape from his torture. This movie had some jump scares and certain horror film stereotypes but overall I would say this film definitely delivered some creepy vibes. While I liked this film, I left the theater feeling unresolved as the movie ended on a cliffhanger. But, that’s something you will have to check out for yourself!
