If there was one thing Hollywood ever needed more of it’s horror films about creepy, overly aggressive and violent children.
Seriously though, it seems rather lazy to just throw together a horror film about a child with murderous tendencies. Yes, the idea that you are actually raising something that will one day kill you is a chilling concept. It’s almost like you’re Dr. Frankenstein and you’re raising the monster that will terrorize the villagers, but first it wants to destroy you.
That really is a bothersome thought, but do we really need another film based on this idea? Apparently, according to Hollywood, the answer is a resounding yes.
“The Prodigy” starring Taylor Schilling, hits theaters on Feb. 8.
