      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Prodigy doesn't take the bad seed genre to any truly new places, but for horror fans in search of an evil child to fear, it might still be worth a watch.

      Claudia Puig FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) There are a couple moments when it works... [but] I would say go back and watch The Omen or The Bad Seed [instead]. Sep 18, 2019 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) Not even an amiable central performance from Taylor Schilling...and some early atmospheric mood-setting can save this "demon child" knock-off from its ineptitude. Rated: 2/5 Mar 15, 2019 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian It's an unscary scary movie that quickly abandons the very thing that might have made it interesting... Rated: 1/5 Mar 14, 2019 Full Review Kate Boyle InSession Film I recommend it to fans of the genre who are just looking for something new to watch, but it’s nothing super special or memorable. Rated: C Mar 8, 2023 Full Review Danilo Castro Next Best Picture It’s a competent watch, but don’t expect to remember it by the time you get to your car. Rated: 4/10 May 17, 2022 Full Review Nicolás Delgadillo Discussing Film Patience is rewarded time and time again by genuinely scary scenes. Rated: 3 / 5 Jun 25, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      chocoptamo c The only horror about this film was that someone actually created it Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/17/23 Full Review Emilliano S Its like a direct rip off of The Omen but it has promising jump scares worth the watch Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/17/23 Full Review Wolfgang G The Prodigy ist ein Horrorfilm von Nicholas McCarthy (Regie) und das Drehbuch schrieb Jeff Buhler. The Prodigy bringt das Bad-Seed-Genre ins Spiel, ein gut inszenierter Horrorfilm. Jackson Robert Scott in der Rolle von Miles Blume hat eine tolle Leistung gezeigt. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/27/22 Full Review Audience Member I really liked it. Don't read into the bad reviews. Kept me guessing Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member While it doesn’t go as far as it could’ve, The Prodigy has an interesting concept, great acting and even some dark humor that make for an unexpected gem. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/11/21 Full Review Audience Member just ok. a little boring but its a interesting story with no much different journey Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews
