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.




  • Really cool idea

    By Cassmilrya
    Superman gone killer. This was a cool movie.
  • Lame as lame can be…

    By tv com
    This movie fails at its attempt to be original and edgy. It falls flat and is lame as lame can be.
  • Thanks for garbage

    Get good at making movies
  • I liked it.

    By Zen Eyes
    Could it have been better? Yes. Did it set the tone for what could come next? Definitely. I hope they ignore the 1-star ratings and build on the potential sequel material.

  • Um.... Superman vibes over here

    By Nicholas becerra
    Seriously Hollywood do you think you could rip-off one of the greatest superheroes in DC Comics just stupid crap over here. Brightburn is nothing like superman it's boring long and violent loud.

  • Superhero? We talkin' about a Superhero?

    By Busta Cup
    I give this film (director, producers, actors) 3 stars credit for an intertaining, suspenseful and unexpected movie experience. The concept, the idea, the inspiration were really good; it's the execution that nearly failed it's good intentions. The plot was all over the place; I could not determine if it was just me - what was I missing? Or, was it the plot holes? After some thought, it's the latter. There are too many plot points thrown at you to be taken seriously or as a cohesive whole. The ending was abrupt and signaled a potential sequel. Don't get ahead of yourself, I say. The acting by the adoptive parents was second to none - they gave it their all. The kid could have been played better by a CGI alien, it was so dull. Was it grotesque? Only a couple scenes toward the end - that is not why you should not watch it. Watch it to yearn for future reprises that will tighten this genre up.
  • Absolutely horrible

    By Hoingster
    This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. The plot, writing, acting are all subpar. There is no character development and everything just feels forced. Rented this on a $.99 rental and I still feel like I was ripped off. Do not waste your time.
