Fans of the 90’s electronica group, The Prodigy, will be disappointed to learn that today’s new trailer for The Prodigy doesn’t feature any spiky multi-colored hair or face piercings. Instead, the new Orion Pictures film tells the story of a homicidal baby genius who- like a live action Stewie from Family Guy– becomes more dangerous and threatening towards his parents as he grows more intelligent. In the new clip, Miles’ parents take him to a psychological specialist (one who The Prodigy might suggest is used to dealing with the “psychosomatic, addict, insane!”) with little signs of success. The trailer ends with Miles asking his mom, “Will you always love me, no matter what I do?” Based on the kind of horror movies which typically hit theaters in January and February, how could anyone possibly answer that question affirmatively? For all we know, his next line just might be, “I’m a firestata! Twisted firestata!”
While many of you may have seen the trailer as it accompanied the latest Halloween feature, today Orion Pictures officially released the trailer for The Prodigy. If you enjoy creepy kids, this movie could be right up your alley. While the preview doesn’t give us too much, we get a glimpse into the life of Miles, a young boy who is seemingly inhabited by some sort of demon.
The Prodigy is directed by Nicholas McCarthy (The Pact) and stars Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black), Jackson Robert Scott (IT), Colm Feore (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) and Peter Mooney. read more
