He's Not Here To Save The World
What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.
- “This film draws its strength in part from its willingness to be a more humbly scaled operation than the tentpoles weighted down by mandates for billion-dollar grosses.” – Little White Lies
- “It leans heavily on jump scares and creeps before engaging with its premise, but when it does it's as chilling as Superman's freezing breath.” – Time Out
- “A cure for superhero movie fatigue, this lean, gory horror film…has a coherent narrative and pays off with a bang.” – Chicago Reader
