In my review for the James Gunn-produced Brightburn, I declared that the film will be the bar that all future superhero horror movies would be measured against. Brightburn adds legitimacy to a burgeoning subgenre of horror, and the vignette embedded at the top of the article explains why.

Brightburn is now playing in theaters nationwide. Check out the synopsis and trailer below.

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.

David Yarovesky directs Brightburn from a screenplay penned by Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn; the film stars Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, and Matt Jones.
