Prodigy Star Richard Neil Interview

If you are not familiar with the name Richard Neil, I bet you’ve seen him or at least heard his voice before. A veteran actor with over 70 IMDb credits, Neil has also amassed a number of voice acting jobs for some of the biggest video game franchises around. Neil is fresh off playing psychologist James “Jimmy” Fonda in Prodigy, a low-budget sci-fi thriller that just debuted on Digital, VOD, iTunes, and Amazon. The film is written and directed by Alex Haughey and Brian Vidal and is terrific at building tension thanks to its minimalist approach and cast (read my review of the film here).

Prodigy (2017) movie review

Prodigy
Blu-ray | Digital
Directed Alex Haughey, Brian Vidal
Written by Alex Haughey, Brian Vidal
Starring Savannah Liles, Richard Neil, Jolene Andersen, Emilio Palame, David Linski, Harvey Q. Johnson, Aral Gribble
Release Date: March 13, 2018

Prodigy opens with stock video camera footage of a family throughout the years. The final shot from this recording is a young girl in a park with a book far too large for her age, as she looks up into the camera…it’s a rather haunting image and a good omen of things to come.

Some of my favorite films are contained thrillers, using only one or few locations to turn up the tension and suspense. Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope is a murder mystery all shot in one apartment. Alex Garland’s Ex Machina is almost entirely set in the expansively home of its eccentric billionaire lead character. Even Joel Schumacher’s Phone Booth pulses with intensity despite the bulk of screen time spent in the titular cubicle. Joining the ranks of these is Prodigy, written and directed by Alex Haughey and Brian Vidal. Their film is a contained thriller that spends much of its 75 minute run time on a quiet, yet intense conversation between a therapist and a patient, a young girl in a straitjacket.
