The Prodigy, 2019 - ★★★

Slightly above average "horror" movie that wouldn't have worked as well without a pretty solid child actor. Orange is the New Black's Taylor Schilling is effective as a loving and concerned mother of a "possessed" child Miles. There are some jump scares but this feels more like a serial killer thriller than a traditional horror film. The story is kinda hokey in parts and Peter Mooney (a Chris Evans wannabe) is god awful as Miles' father. You can certainly wait for video on this one.
