Elizabeth Banks and David Denman star in this sci-fi horror directed by David Yarovesky. In 2006, young couple Tori and Kyle Breyer (Banks and Denman) are desperate for a child but are struggling with infertility. When a spaceship lands near to their farmhouse one night, they discover a baby boy inside and decide to adopt him as their own. 12 years later, the boy, Brandon (Jackson A. Dunn) begins to show signs of disturbing behaviour, stalking a girl at school, slaughtering chickens and levitating above a trap door in the house. When Brandon's violent behaviour gets out of control his parents quickly run out of ways to calm him down.
Brightburn follows Brandon Breyer, a young boy of extraterrestrial origin reared on Earth who realizes he has superpowers. Upon learning of them and being brainwashed by the ship he arrived in, Brandon rejects his humanity and turns to evil, opting to terrorize his hometown, including his parents. This is a surprisingly good Sci-Fi horror better then what I had expected. Recommended. 8 out of 10
