This year has been full of some truly treacherous new horror flicks. From John Krasinski’s haunting film A Quiet Place all the way to the mind-boggling thriller Hereditary, how can any movie top what we’ve seen in 2018?
The great minds from Orion Pictures who released such films as The Belko Experiment (2017) and the iconic The Silence Of The Lambs (1991) introduced their new film The Prodigy.
The movie stars Taylor Schilling (Orange Is The New Black) as Sarah, mother to Miles, played by Jackson Robert Scott. Scott is most well-known as Georgie from 2017’s horror-hit It.
He’s trading his yellow raincoat, red balloon and boat in for horrifying skeleton face makeup reminiscent of Tate Langdon from American Horror Story.
The plot follows Sarah as she sees her son Miles demonstrate some behaviors that are anything but normal. Evil may be lurking in her son, but Sarah’s motherly instincts cannot be stopped.
The teaser depicts Miles in a therapist’s office who’s speaking in a soothing voice to the sound of a metronome. Who knew a simple ticking sound could make your hair stand up?
Only those brave enough should proceed and watch what happens next. Hold your popcorn tight. The end of The Prodigy trailer might send it flying.
This film will be in theaters everywhere Feb. 8, 2019.
For horror fans, make sure to keep your eyes out for the trailer playing exclusively before the new Halloween movie out right now.

Halloween had a fantastic opening weekend, and already broke several records.
Only costing $10 million to produce, Halloween has earned an estimated $77.5 million its opening weekend, making it the second biggest October opening ever. It fell just short of Tom Hardy’s superhero film Venom, which had a $80.2 million opening a few weeks ago.
Halloween also had the tenth best opening for an R-rated movie of any genre.
Now that’s something to scream about.
