After a difficult struggle with fertility, Tori’s dreams of motherhood come true with the arrival of a mysterious baby boy. Brandon appears to be everything Tori and her husband Kyle ever wanted-bright, talented, curious about the world. But as Brandon nears puberty, a powerful darkness seems to manifest within him, and Tori becomes consumed by terrible doubts about her son. Once Brandon begins to act on his twisted urges, those closest to him find themselves in grave danger, as the miracle child transforms into a vicious predatos unleashed on an unsuspecting Kansas town. With BrightBurn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and The Belko Experiment presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.
