Highly Suspect Reviews: The Prodigy

It may have taken director Nicholas McCarthy awhile to get going on his directorial career, but at age 40 he released the low-budget, but much beloved The Pact. Now, on his third film, Nic takes on the ‘demon seed’ genre of horror films, telling the story of Miles, a genius child. Also, a child who might be possessed by something evil, or that’s what his mom (Taylor Schilling) thinks. Things go bump in the playpen and our critics, Patience, JC, and Miguel, think that’s kinda ok. Listen to their review right here.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
