Brightburn

What if Superman was evil? 

This is a question that was poorly teased in the instantly forgettable Superman 3 (not Richard Pryor’s finest hour), but is answered in a suitably creepy fashion in our last film in January, Brightburn.

Brightburn tells the story of a mid-western farming couple who find a baby after his spaceship crashes by their farm, sound familiar?

That is where the similarities end as any connection to the all-American apple pie goodness of Superman are deftly swept away by the actions of the increasingly murderous 12 year-old sociopath with a cape, an invulnerability to bullets and killer stare, literally… and oh yeah, he flies.
