What the Critics say
Ilan Preskovsky What can be said, though, is that for all that there’s nothing extraordinary about the Prodigy, it does successfully counter some of its lack of ingenuity and its over-reliance of horror tropes with a willingness to be, by turns, nasty, smart and humane, depending on what the narrative calls for at any particular moment.
Michael Ordona Graphic violence, language in “bad seed” horror movie.
