Movie: The Prodigy Plot
During a police raid on Edward Scarka’s farmhouse in rural Ohio on August 22, 2010, the serial killer was fatally shot. Miles, the son of Sarah and John, is born during the time of Edward’s death in Pennsylvania, where the married couple lives. As a baby, Miles is full of wisdom and intelligence and can communicate effectively before he is even old enough to walk. Behavioral changes begin to emerge in Miles when he reaches the age of eight in 2018. A prank that he pulls on his babysitter Zoe leaves her in critical condition, but he denies any knowledge of what transpired. Wrench-wielding classmate:
he attacks him in the hallways of school As part of Sarah’s visit to Elaine Strasser, a psychiatrist, she provides a tape of Miles speaking incoherently while sleeping. A rebirth and reincarnation expert colleague of Elaine’s, Arthur Jacobson, receives the recording. Upon further investigation, Arthur finds that Miles’ gibberish is in reality a rare Hungarian dialect and that the phrases mean “I’ll rip your eyeballs out and watch you die.”
When Arthur claims that a troubled spirit wants to take possession of the boy’s body, Sarah refuses to believe him. Miles has been secretly filming the couple’s bedroom with a baby monitor while the family’s dog is gone, and John is enraged. In the meantime, John has gone to stay with his brother, leaving Sarah and Miles alone together. Later, Sarah discovers a swarm of flies in the house and the dismembered dog of the family in the basement. Miles apologizes, saying that he needs to “make room” for someone disturbing his dreams every night.
