In her much-anticipated foray into the horror-thriller genre, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Taylor Schilling 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 choose between her maternal instinct to love and protect Miles and a desperate need to investigate 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 becomes frighteningly blurry.

We saw this movie with a group of friends and all of us agreed that it was quite an experience. I think the best part of the movie was when we saw the reflection of the hotel's logo on the ground. We all shared a common laugh when that happened. It was also good to see all the celebrity cameos in the movie. I think that Michael Caine was very good at bringing all of the cast together. I would definitely recommend this movie to any fan of the original and to anyone who is looking for a great horror movie.

The Prodigy is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. In fact, it's a great movie that keeps you interested the whole time. The storyline is interesting and the direction of the movie is great. The story is about a group of four friends in middle school who work together to have fun. But what happens when their friends start killing themselves. The movie is great because the characters are great and the characters are believable. It makes you think about what you are doing, what you are doing and how it is affecting your life. I think that the acting of the actors is great because they are all so well known. They have great acting and great chemistry. The characters are all great and each one has their own personality. They are not stereotypical. I like the soundtrack because it is a mix of rock and hip hop. The music also adds to the movie and keeps you on your toes. The Prodigy also has great use of colors and the music in the movie adds to the movie. It is also a nice movie because the film is dark and the movie makes you think. Overall, I think the Prodigy is a great movie because it keeps you on the edge of your seat and it keeps you thinking. It is a great movie and I think it deserves more credit than it is getting.

For anyone who's ever loved a film as much as I have, this is the film for you. Sure, it's nothing like the first film in the series, but it's damn close! Why is the girl playing Charlie so stunningly beautiful? It's so simple. She's beautiful because she's super-cool, and that's why they made her so. The story isn't going to be anything special, but the fact that it's actually a story means that you can't be too critical. Just take it for what it is, and enjoy it!

What is amazing about this film is that it really doesn't follow any of the rules of the horror genre. It's about as conventional as it gets. There is no unnecessary exposition and it actually manages to stay fairly close to the book as far as plot goes. In fact, I can't really find a point in this film to criticize. All of the characters are very well-developed and are fairly well-written, with the exception of Olivia Cooke who I really felt was written to give the worst possible performance in the film. All of the gore was executed very well and was not forced or unnecessary. The acting was very good all around and really helped make the film unique in a bad way. The only thing I felt was a little bit questionable was the ending. While I can understand how they could end the film in this way, it didn't really fit for me and the entire film was lost on me. Overall, I thought this film was pretty good, and would recommend it to fans of horror and gore fans.

This is a great movie and I'm giving it 9 out of 10 stars, although, there are some things I didn't like in the movie. For example, the fact that they went to the zoo and shot the footage in the wrong season. The water in the final scene was way too muddy, I mean, that's just the sort of thing you should expect in the middle of a bad season. This is really a movie about a band of misfits who go on an adventure to recover a tape they stole from a store that's been taken over by a psychopath. But as the title implies, it's not all fun and games, this movie has some dark aspects that are really interesting and unique. The thing I like most about this movie is the characters, they are really likable and unique and make this movie what it is. The only thing I didn't like about this movie was the music. I don't know if it's because I'm a terrible music fan or just because I'm not a huge fan of "inspired" music, but I don't like the music. I liked the music in Dario Argento's other films (Zombi 2, and the Third Reich), but it was also different in this film. Overall, I think this is one of the best movies of the year and I definitely recommend it. Definitely a classic and one of the best of the year.

I think that the best way to describe this movie is that it was an accidental classic. I never read the book but I loved it so much that I became a real fan of the movie. I felt that the movie was an amazing success because the plot was well thought out and the special effects were the best that I have ever seen. If I were to make one change, I would have picked up the ending a little sooner. It was good, but I wanted it to be a little better. It was good, but the ending left me a little disappointed. I wish they had put in some more suspense or tension as well as better dialogue between the characters. The only problem I had with this movie was that the end was a little bit too cliche. It could have been a little more interesting if the end of the movie had a little more drama. Overall, it was an amazing movie and one that I would recommend to anyone who is a fan of horror or suspense. It is the best movie I have ever seen so far this year and I would recommend it to anyone.

The Prodigy is truly a modern horror classic. It is, by far, the best movie I have seen this year, and I've seen a lot of horror movies. The Prodigy is the story of a kid named 'Mac' who is obsessed with video games and spends his spare time at his local video game store playing video games, and being the coolest kid in school. A video game called 'The Last Ninja' is offered to him, and Mac decides to play it. The game gets progressively more and more difficult, until the game is essentially unplayable. As the game gets more and more difficult, Mac's friends begin to die one by one. Each death is horrifying, and shows Mac's mental state. I have no idea how it all happened, but I think that was the entire plot. The game was frightening, and the actors were very good in their roles. You could tell the actors were obsessed with the video game. The performances were very convincing. I think it's important to point out that the actors did their own acting, and it was very different than what you would see in a movie. There is a scene in the movie where Mac is playing a computer game and he tells his girlfriend 'Mom, if you're watching this, you should probably watch the game.' If you've played the game, you might feel the same way. The movie is also very creepy. It is very hard to describe it, but I will try. I think it's probably the creepiest movie I have ever seen. When the game gets more and more difficult, the movie starts to get more and more scary. When Mac says 'I'll be back,' it will be back to hell and back to the video game store. The movie is really scary, and it does have a few disturbing scenes in it. If you've never seen this movie, I think you should see it.

This movie was so good and scary that I want to watch it again and again. My friend and I went to a screening of it and everybody that was in the movie came up to the screen after the screening to say how great it was. It had a great story, the actors were great, the film was really cool, it was a really fun movie to watch. The plot of the movie was good, and the suspense of the movie was good. I loved it. I don't want to give away any of the plot of the movie, because everyone should know what is going on. But I do want to tell you that the film does have a twist at the end. I would say that it is worth watching. It is definitely worth watching. I would give it a 9 out of 10. I would definitely recommend this movie to any horror fans.

The Prodigy is a weird and dark little film. The main character, Jamie, is an average joe with no superpowers. However, he doesn't hesitate to go to extremes to make his life better. After a long day, he sneaks into the city's only drug store and, in the end, destroys all the drugs. He also kills some of the dealers he finds, although not all of them. It's easy to see that this is just a story about one man's journey to escape the ordinary. But it does have a twist, because it makes sense. In the beginning, Jamie says that he can see a ghost, and this is something that is commonly believed in this society. But Jamie says it's not a ghost, it's something else, and it's not even his imagination. Jamie finds himself in a strange place, and it seems that his life is being controlled by something else. This is where the film takes a completely different turn. You can see that Jamie is really out of control, and in control of his life. In this world, things are very very different from what you would expect. Jamie's girlfriend is dying, and she is in the hospital, and when Jamie finds her he is planning to kill her. There is also something that Jamie's mother is telling him, which he can't quite figure out. It's a twist that will definitely give you a bit of a scare, and some different meaning to your life.

I've seen many reviews of this movie, which is a shame, because the movie is so great. First, it has a really great concept, i.e. the search for a new starting point in life and a kid trying to find his path. It's well-written, well-acted, and really creepy. This is a scary movie, one of the few I've seen that has really frightening imagery. The part where they film the kid in the tree, the next scene with him in the back seat of the car, the scary old lady, and the other scary part are all good examples of this, and the actor who plays the boy, who I have only seen in The Last Exorcism, was also great. But I think it's worth noting that the director and the writer of the script actually are the same person, which is the only clue this is a movie by the same guy.

I first saw the film "Redrum" when it was first released. It was very strange, it wasn't in my list of films. But, I finally watched it, and it was a totally different experience. The whole film has some kind of dreamlike quality, and it's completely original, like the other movies of the Saw franchise. It's not the ordinary slasher films you see on TV, it's the films of the best horror films of the last decades, and the film has the most gore and the most dark atmosphere ever. And also, it's really scary. There are some really nasty scenes, and I didn't expect it. But it's just too sad. The whole film is a masterpiece, and I strongly recommend it to all horror fans, but it's very rare to find a good film like this.

I was going to watch this film in the cinema and I was excited. But, I was rather disappointed. What is it about? Is it just because I'm not too familiar with this director's other works? I'm not sure. But I think it was the film itself. It's a really great movie. It has good directing, good actors, good story, and most importantly, it has a well built up mystery, which makes it so scary and dark. I think that the movie deserved more than just 7.7 and I don't understand why they have given it more. Because it is really good, and it's a perfect horror film. I really recommend it to anyone who wants to watch a good horror film. It's not the usual type of film I would recommend but it's a really good movie, that's what makes me think this is a good film. I give it a 9/10

Let me first start off by saying that I have always enjoyed the film by the same name. Not for the content of it but because it was filmed with such flair. This film however had a limited budget and it shows. The same can be said for the CGI used in the film. It is well used and you can tell that they tried. The special effects are used quite well but not as well as in the original film. In this film there are more jump scares that make you jump but not as many as the original. Some of the music is used but only in a few scenes which makes the film feel a little bit shorter. This film could have been much better and there are certain scenes that could have been longer. The ending is good and not predictable like the original. The film does have a decent amount of jump scares but they are mixed in with the normal scares. The acting is decent and all the characters do have a good amount of personality. There is not much gore in this film, and if you are a gore freak then you will probably like it because the gore is so well used. The film has some great music in it that really grabs you. The score is dark, gritty and also very effective and fits the film. This film was always going to be a cult classic for its humour, gore, uniqueness, special effects and great soundtrack. I thought the cast was great, I liked how the film focused on certain characters but also how each character had their own backstory and what makes them different from the other. I like how they showed some older and more experienced criminals in their criminal careers. I also enjoyed the acting of the main character that was played by Aaron Yoo who is an actor that I love. He did a great job. Overall, the film is not perfect but is a very good film that I would recommend to anyone who loves the horror genre. It is a film that you can watch and enjoy over and over again. I rate this film 9/10.

This is an incredibly well made movie, not that much blood, no special effects, but the story is really well written and the acting is great. I also thought the characters were really well developed, and all of the characters are real people. If you like horror movies, you should definitely watch this.

I thought this was an excellent film. The story has been done before but this time it is better. The best part is that the story is well-developed and it doesn't have any really "stupid" parts. The actors are good, especially Sean Bean and Lily James. The music is great, the story is good, and the characters are quite interesting. The actors are good at playing their parts and they are acting very well. The film is very well-done. The ending is good too. Overall, the film is great and it will give you a good scare. The movie has a good story, good actors, and a good ending. It will scare you.

I was a bit apprehensive about going to see this film after seeing the bad reviews from so many people who couldn't understand how this film was even remotely scary. I was wrong. The Prodigy is a film that has the potential to be scary but is actually very entertaining and really quite well acted. The acting was great and the directing was very good. It was well written and the characters were well developed. The plot of the film is something that really grabbed me. I have never read the book so I wasn't sure how it would translate but I really didn't have any problems with it. The actors and actresses were perfect for the roles and the director did a great job of bringing the characters to life. If you're a fan of horror films or even a film fan you'll definitely enjoy this film. It's a great film and if you're looking for something to scare you, I definitely recommend this film. I give it a 9/10 and it deserves it.

I saw this movie back in 2007, on TV, on a rainy day, in the middle of a winter day, when no one else was home. After watching this movie, I was hooked. I was like "This is really amazing!". At the time, I was really impressed with the movie, and thought I might never be able to sit through a movie the same way again. I am SO glad that I did! It's definitely a movie that people who like a good thriller/horror will not be able to miss! The script, acting, and suspense are all top notch. I cannot stress enough how amazing this movie is. Not only is it a very good movie, but it is also a very creepy movie. I have not seen anything this good since Nightmare on Elm Street. The "Halloween" movie, "Saw", "Carrie", "The Conjuring", "It", "The Ring", "Hostel", "Scream", "Dawn of the Dead", "It's Alive", and many more. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of these movies or just like good thrillers!

As a huge horror fan, I must say this is my favorite one. It is really creepy, suspenseful, and has an amazing plot and ending. The girl dies in the end and the film is one of the best horror films I have ever seen. Also, I love the fact that it's just like a modern day slasher flick. I will see this movie over and over again and have it on my list of movies to watch. You will see what I mean when you see this movie. It's a great one to see in the theater.

I don't want to give anything away but this movie was amazing and did a great job. I got to see it last night and i can say that it was a great movie and i will be buying it when it comes out on DVD. The acting was superb and the storyline was intriguing and scary. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good movie with a twist. My Rating: 9/10
