When the Evil Boy of Steel Throws a Tantrum

This week on the podcast Brian is joined by friend of the show Darryl Jasper, and they are talking about the newest James Gunn produced superhero horror movie Brightburn!

Brightburn (2019)

Brightburn is a 2019 American superhero horror film directed by David Yarovesky and produced by James Gunn and Kenneth Huang. It stars Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn, Matt Jones, and Meredith Hagner, and follows a young alien boy raised on Earth who realizes he has superpowers, soon using them to terrorize his town. The film is produced and financed by Screen Gems, Stage 6 Films, Troll Court Entertainment, and The H Collective.


In 2006, Tori and Kyle Breyer are a young couple living on a farm in Brightburn, Kansas. One night, a spaceship falls from the sky near their farm with a baby boy inside. The couple adopt him as their own, naming him Brandon. Twelve years later, Brandon discovers that he has superhuman strength and then a significant degree of invulnerability after hearing strange voices in his head. Later, Brandon sleepwalks to the barn, trying to open a trapdoor which contains the spaceship while chanting in an alien language. Tori intervenes and wakes him.
