Orion Pictures has released the new trailer for The Prodigy, the supernatural horror thriller directed by Nicholas McCarthy (The Pact, At Devil’s Door) and opening in theaters on February 8, 2019. If you missed the teaser trailer, you can still watch it here.
In her much-anticipated foray into the horror-thriller genre, Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black) stars in The Prodigy as Sarah, a mother whose young son Miles’ disturbing behavior signals that an evil, possibly supernatural force has overtaken him. Fearing for her family’s safety, Sarah must grapple with her maternal instinct to love and protect Miles in favor of investigating what – or who – is causing his dark turn. She is forced to look for answers in the past, taking the audience on a wild ride; one where the line between perception and reality remains blurry.
The film also stars Jackson Robert Scott (It, Fear the Walking Dead), Peter Mooney (Burden of Truth, Rookie Blue), and Colm Feore (Thor, Pearl Harbor).
The film was written by Jeff Buhler (The Midnight Meat Train, Pet Sematary) and produced by Tripp Vinson (The Rite, The Exorcism of Emily Rose).
