The Prodigy – a dark, foreboding movie

I am not aware of who Taylor Schilling is because I never watched “Orange is the New Black”. I guess that is a good thing because I was unable to lodge a stereotypical role onto anyone acting in this movie. The movie reminded me of that classic horror The Omen but in a much creepier sense. This movie maintain it’s creep factor throughout. I was also relieve to see that the ending did not fall prey to the tidy Hollywood ending that most horror movies tend to go for after following prolonged tension throughout the storyline. Jackson Robert Scott as the tortured Miles Bloom did an amazing job creeping out audiences throughout the movie. Yes, similar stories had been made into  movies many times before, but none as foreboding to watch as this one.
