I'd never heard of The Prodigy until this trailer dropped. But after seeing it, I'm totally on board with whatever's going on in this cold, still James Wan clone. I mean, Colm Feore is basically hypnotizing a ghost out of a little kid's (Jackson Robert Scott) body, which is enough to anoint this movie straight up franchise material.
Take a look for yourself:
Coming from the resurrected Orion Pictures (who also have the rather risky, weird, and overly whimsical zombie musical Anna & The Apocalypse coming later this year), I'm even more intrigued. Could this be a chilly sleeper come the dead months of 2019's first quarter? Lord, I hope so. Or, this could be enthusiasm from my recent Conjuring re-watches talking, too.
Guess we'll find out when The Prodigy hits theaters February 8th, 2019.
