This is your opportunity to vote for the best Brightburn quotes. This horror movie twists the idea of a superhero origin story into something scary. A spacecraft carrying an alien infant crash-lands in a rural Kansas field. A nice couple, Tori and Kyle Breyer (Elizabeth Banks and David Denman), discovers it. They choose to raise the child as their own son. When he gets a little older, it's revealed that Brandon (Jackson A. Dunn) has special powers, including flight, super-strength, and the ability to shoot laser beams out of his eyes. Any similarity to the origin of Superman is intentional. The difference is that Clark Kent used his powers for good. Brandon, on the other hand, is undeniably evil.

This unnerving and chilling movie was directed by David Yarovesky and produced by James Gunn, best known for writing and directing Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy pictures. The screenplay was written by Gunn's brother Mark Gunn and his cousin Brian Gunn. Reviews for the film have been mostly positive, with critics praising the original spin on superhero cinema, interesting characters, and Banks' emotional performance as a mother who's in denial about her son's wickedness.
