In Ohio, police officers kill the serial-killer Edward Scarka (Paul Fauteux), when one of his victims flees from him and discloses his hideout in a farmhouse. Fifteen minutes later in Pennsylvania, Sarah Blume (Taylor Schilling) delivers her son Miles Blume (Jackson Robert Scott). Soon Miles becomes the pride and joy of Sarah and her husband John Blume (Peter Mooney) with his intelligence. When Miles is eight years old, his parents note his aggressive behavior and Sarah records his words during a nightmare. She brings Miles to the psychiatrist Dr. Elaine Strasser (Paula Boudreau) that shows the tape to Dr. Arthur Jacobson (Colm Feore), who is specialist in reincarnation. Soon he concludes that Miles is possessed by an evil entity and may lose his soul. What will Sarah and John do?<br/><br/>"The Prodigy" is a predictable horror movie with a story of a child possessed by an evil reincarnation. Despite the well-known theme, the screenplay is not bad and keep the attention of the viewer. Therefore, it is worthwhile watching this film with lower expectation and the viewer may have a surprise. My vote is six.<br/><br/>Title (Brazil): "Maligno" ("Malign")

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.
