When 16-year-old Danielle (Blu Hunt) wakes up in a hospital chained to her bed, she learns that she’s now a patient there together with other teenagers who have one thing in common: supernatural powers. This spin-off to the X-Men movies introduces a new bunch of gifted mutants and a different concept. Pitched as ”Stephen King meets John Hughes”, the film has Breakfast Club-style drama (uneasily) combined with horror effects. OK cast, but bogged down by a dull climax involving a demon bear, no less.

2020-U.S. 94 min. Color. Directed by Josh Boone. Comic Book: Chris Claremont, Bob McLeod. Cast: Maisie Williams (Rahne Sinclair), Anya Taylor-Joy (Illyana Rasputin), Blu Hunt (Danielle Moonstar), Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Henry Zaga. Voice of Marilyn Manson.

Trivia: Co-executive produced by Stan Lee. Filmed in 2017.
