This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The elevator pitch is “Superman meets The Omen” and it doesn’t really color outside those lines.
Highlights: Some horrifying kills, with “dare you to keep looking” camerawork straight out of Lucio Fulci film academy. Excellent casting (the parents are as loving and relatable as you could want). Some successful placement of Chekhov’s guns, in ways that pay off unexpectedly.
Lowlights: Takes a long while to get going and cops out on the kid’s motivations.
There’s a joke in the closing…
