Madison's visions of murders become terrifying realities in a visually stunning horror film.


Why watch this film?

After 'The Conjuring 2', released in 2016, James Wan is back directing another horror movie. Different from his previous works, 'Saw', 'Scream' and 'Supernatural', 'Malignant' has a different story and influences from classic directors of the genre. Visually speaking, the production is impeccable, the director's creativity in filming from different angles manages to build up the suspenseful atmosphere - which draws from Alfred Hitchcock and Dario Argento, specifically in 'Phenomena', from 1981. The feature also has an excellent soundtrack, which accompanies the tense scenes, and this time, Wan left out the jumpscares - there are very few moments when these "sudden scares" happen. In terms of story, 'Malignant' starts off well, has a solid development, but the ending ends up being a break of expectations for those taking the movie seriously. For those who weren't, it ends up being a quite entertaining change of direction. So watch it more for entertainment than for terror.
