evil children

The word "prodigy" is defined typically as a person, especially a young one, endowed with exceptional qualities or abilities. Cinema is filled to the brim with these types of stories, so Alex Haughey and Brian Vidal's feature is already humming a familiar tune. But this time the prodigy in question is a red headed demon child with a dangerous superiority complex. What follows is essentially 80 minutes of a psychologist attempting to make a 9-year old girl cry.

Kate (Vera Farmiga) is one damaged mommy. She battles alcoholism -- a disease which nearly cost her the life of her young daughter -- and she recently gave birth to a still-born baby girl. She's out of work, and her mother-in-law is a hateful pain in the ass. Things could be going better.
