Producer James Gunn gives the Superman story a bloody jab in the eye in this mash-up of slasher film, superhero origin story and evil child flick.
An infertile couple (Elizabeth Banks and David Denman) receive a gift from the heavens, literally, when a spacecraft containing a seemingly human baby boy crashes in the woods behind their farmhouse. Fast forward 12 years and the boy, Brandon (Jackson A. Dunn), is a sweet and quiet kid, until the onset of puberty and a strange summons from the spacecraft hidden in his parents’ barn unleashes his true nature as a super-powered psychopath. Tapping parental nightmares and sending superhero tropes to hell, this modest shocker is a lean and mean genre experiment that’s more indebted to The Omen than Superman: The Movie.
