Exclusive: The Cast and Crew of BRIGHTBURN Pick Their Favorite Cinematic Creepy Kids
Tomorrow sees the home video release of Sony’s Brightburn, the horror-infused superhero film that follows a young boy in rural America and what happens when he decides to be a lot less wholesome than Clark Kent.
To celebrate tomorrow’s release, we’ve got an exclusive clip that was shot at a junket in which the cast and crew talk about their favorite creepy kids from cinema history. It may come as no surprise but there’s a lot of love for The Shining. That being said, there are a few other movies named, so make sure to watch the above clip!
“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?“
David Yarovesky directs Brightburn from a screenplay penned by Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn; the film stars Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, and Matt Jones. James Gunn acts as producer.
