What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Prodigy is a "possessed child" horror movie. In the film, Sarah (Taylor Schilling) starts to worry about her young son, Miles' (Jackson Robert Scott), disturbing behavior. Although Miles is a child prodigy, Sarah starts seeing signs that he's possessed by an evil, supernatural force. Although the movie is about a child, this definitely isn't for kids. Expect plenty of disturbing imagery, jump scares, and bloody violence, as well as graphic nudity.
