Arriving on Digital April 23rd and on Blu-ray and DVD May 7th
MARCH 26th, 2019 (LOS ANGELES) – THE PRODIGY arrives on Digital April 23rd and Blu-ray and DVD May 7th. In her much-anticipated foray into the horror-thriller genre, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Taylor Schilling stars in THE PRODIGY as Sarah, a mother whose young son Miles’ disturbing behavior signals that an evil, possibly supernatural force has overtaken him. Fearing for her family’s safety, Sarah must choose between her maternal instinct to love and protect Miles and a desperate need to investigate what — or who — is causing his dark turn. She is forced to look for answers in the past, taking the audience on a wild ride; one where the line between perception and reality becomes frighteningly blurry.
