After adding “The last house on the left“to its content offering and before the Taiwanese found footage film”spell” come haunt your nights, Netflix has planned to end the month of June with a final dose of horror. Indeed, the Thursday June 30 next, the streaming platform will inject within its catalog “Brightburn: The Child of Evil“, a diabolical film directed by David Yaroveskyto whom we owe in particular “The pages of anguish” (available on Netflix) and “Guardians of the Galaxy”.
Brightburn: Child of Evil: Horror Superhero
In this film produced by the Gunn brothers, the filmmaker tries an unusual exercise: that of playing on genres and using the myth of the superhero for gory and horrifying purposes. Here, the superhero clearly switches to the dark side of the force!
“He looks like us, but he’s not like us”
This 1h31 feature film takes us to 2006, in the middle of the night when Kyle and Tori Breyer, a couple of farmers without children (and wishing to have one) discover a baby in a space capsule. Baptized Brandon, the child turns out to be a curious, alert and naturally gifted little boy. But as he approaches adolescence, something malevolent takes hold of him, which drives him to commit the worst atrocities and sow chaos in the small, uneventful town.
Who is in the cast?
The cast brings together in the main roles Elizabeth Banks, David Denman and Jackson A. Dunn.
What did internet users think when it was released in theaters?
Released in theaters in 2019, “Brightburn: the child of evil”, due to its iconoclastic character, caused a lot of ink to flow, in this case on Twitter where we collected the divided impressions of Internet users:
Seen Brightburn, the Child of Evil, or, what if Superman had gone wrong and started butting everyone! A very gripping and rather gory horror “superhero” film, even if some visual effects are outdated. A good pickaxe that is out of the ordinary! pic.twitter.com/CHlHYIx9a3

“Brightburn The Evil Child” one of the worst movies I’ve seen. Scenario really not original, special effects but I swear it’s shameful, worthy of a D series and then but the actors, very average but really never watch it.

I would add “Brightburn, the Child of Evil”, a nice proposal in the genre but it’s more “super anti hero film”…

#BrightBurn : L’enfant du Mal is a really not bad film, rather original with horrible and gory scenes.
Now, it must be admitted, it is sorely lacking in explanation, I would have liked to know more, understand the why and how.
