Superman traditionally stands for "truth, justice and the American way". The essay Caitlyn is writing when she's visited by Brandon is "The Decline of Truth and Justice in the Modern World", identifying Brandon as a twisted, dark version of Superman born from the death of the values that the original one embodied.

Young Brandon Breyer (Jackson A. Dunn) is shown in video flashbacks growing up with his adoptive parents. He looks to be about five or six years old when he's helping his father complete a construction project on the farm. Immediately after, the title card reads "Ten Years Later," when Brandon is said to be only twelve years old. Ten years after the last shot of him in the home video, he should be around fifteen or sixteen years old. See more »

I liked this, it was interesting. Something different. A couple of jump scares, but more a threatening presence type of thing. A strong peformance by Jackson A Dunn, the lead, although playing a rather "grey" kid, the menace is well done.
Jenifer Holland otherwise takes the plaudits as strong, loving and rather yummy mummy.
Superman parallels, with traditional horror feels, and a quirky theme. Well done with some interesting cinematography and some well done effects and gore.
The titles exit music by Billie Eilish 'Bad Guy', was a nice touch.
It's no masterpiece but a good 7/10 for me and a worthy watch.
