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?

PROJECT DETAILS:
Producer James Gunn had this to say about the project: "..about a year ago my brother Brian, my cousin Mark, director David Yarovesky, producer Simon Hatt and I started coming up with an idea for a horror film that excited me in a way nothing outside of Guardians has in years - it was personal, and different, and perfectly suited for our times. And, yes, terrifying."
James Gunn produces via his Troll Court Entertainment banner.
Directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive).

It's a bit astounding for Gunn and anybody else behind this to maintain that a 'evil Superman' story is an original idea but, putting that aside, Brightburn works as a horror movie. The ending was actually pretty good because along the way of getting their it seems like the movie would end in a pretty predictable fashion, instead it sets up the potential for a sequel and with a mid-credits scene setting up a bit of universe building for future related stories.
