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?

Critics Consensus: Although Brightburn doesn't fully deliver on the pitch-black promise of its setup, it's still enough to offer a diverting subversion of the superhero genre.

"Superpowered monster child" plot gives way to blood, gore.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Brightburn, produced by Guardians of the Galaxy's James Gunn, is a gory horror movie crossed with a superhero story. It's about a child with Superman-like powers who decides to act selfishly and without remorse instead of for good/others. Expect extreme, bloody violence, including several brutal killings, dead bodies, and shock effects (a shard of glass in an eye, a torn-off jaw, gurgling and choking on blood, etc.). Characters have and use guns: A 12-year-old boy is presented with a rifle as a present. There are also jump scares, creepy sounds, a nightmare sequence, and more. Language is strong, with many uses of "f--k," "s--t," and more. A married couple kisses and talks about having sex and getting pregnant. Characters socialize in a bar, and drinking and drunk driving are discussed. Elizabeth Banks and David Denman co-star.
