The Prodigy Trailer

"I'm no longer speaking to Miles. I'm speaking to the person who has taken residence inside his body. You came uninvited." Orion has released the first teaser trailer for yet another new horror thriller, arriving in February early next year, titled The Prodigy. The only synopsis available is quite vague, but it's about a child who has some demonic force living inside of him. His mother becomes increasingly concerned about his odd behavior and decides to do something about it, which might just (probably will) make things worse. Jackson Robert Scott stars as Miles, with Taylor Schilling as his mother Sarah, and a cast including Colm Feore, Brittany Allen, Peter Mooney, and Olunike Adeliyi. This is a slick teaser, enough scares to pull you in and make your hair stand up, but without giving away anything else major yet. Check this out.

Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Nicholas McCarthy's The Prodigy, direct from YouTube:

The Prodigy Poster

There’s something wrong with Miles (Jackson Robert Scott). A mother (Taylor Schilling) concerned about her young son's disturbing behavior thinks something supernatural may be affecting him. The Prodigy is directed by American filmmaker Nicholas McCarthy, of the movies The Pact and At the Devil's Door previously, as well as a number of short films. The screenplay is written by Jeff Buhler. This is produced by Tara Farney and Tripp Vinson, for the production company Vinson Films. Orion will release McCarthy's The Prodigy in theaters everywhere starting February 8th, 2019 early next year. First impression? Curious?

That trailer was pretty well done. LOVED seeing the old school Orion logo precede it. But I'm really tired of these little kid possession movies. The Prodigy doesn't make sense for a title either...

I don't know what the final product will be like, but I actually did script coverage on this and was delighted to see it was made into a film! We all had lots of notes, but no clue if the right changes were made. However, the title does make sense when you see what it's actually about, and it's honestly a more interesting twist on the "creepy child" genre. I rolled my eyes when I first started reading it, but there ended up being a lot of potential. I'm both excited and nervous to see if they were able to smooth things out.

Well, I'm glad it wasn't just me! Thanks for the insight on this. It will be interesting indeed =) Here's hoping...

As said, a good trailer. But the narrative is not alluring ...

Cool to see Schilling, but yeah...looks a bit mediocre.
