Any movie lead by incredibly creepy children is set to be a great one (note Children Of The Corn, The Exorcist, Orphan, etc). The latest edition of the terrifying kid horror film genre is The Prodigy, a film centered around a child who becomes possessed by an unspeakably evil force.

“His intelligence is very high,” a woman tells the mother played by Taylor Schilling of her prodigious child before the trailer gives a glimpse at just how dangerous the young boy is.

The Prodigy is due in theaters on February 8, 2019.
