“Evil has found its superhero,” in the upcoming horror flick Brightburn which is set to release in theaters this weekend. The film released its final trailer before its theatrical debut, and this time, the trailer turns up the horror to the max.
Set in a quiet rural town, Brightburn explores what would have happened if a Superman-like being was sent to Earth and turned evil. In the film follows an orphaned alien child and his loving adoptive family. As the child grows, he discovers he has extraordinary powers which he can’t control. Instead of using his powers for good, things take a horrific turn, and he begins wreaking havoc on the town and doing evil and horrible things to those who live there.
While each trailer so far has been dark and creepy, the final trailer is by far the most horror-filled look at the film yet. Check out the terrifying trailer below.
