The Prodigy didn't make a big impact at the box office, even in this horror-obsessed era we're in. Still, the tiny-budgeted frightener turned a tidy profit for Orion Pictures, which is still in the midst of re-branding as a genre hub. Taylor Schilling stars as the mother of a gifted boy (Jackson Robert Scott) who soon becomes violent.
The film will soon be available for digital rental and Blu-ray and DVD purchase, letting it scare the crap out of you in the comfort of your own home, where you can pause it and change your pants. Special features include commentary by director Nicholas McCarthy and some behind-the-scenes featurettes. You can buy the Blu-ray or DVD on May 7, but if you need your horror fix sooner, the film will be available for digital rental and purchase on April 23.
