James Wan is all about haunting stuff. He haunts homes in The Conjuring, kids in Insidious, the ocean in Aquaman, and automobiles in Livid 7. Now, the acclaimed horror director has returned with a brand new authentic horror movie, Malignant — and it appears to be like prefer it’s all about haunting desires.
With a narrative by Wan, Ingrid Bisu, and Akela Cooper and a screenplay by Cooper, the movie’s premise appears to be like easy and horrifying: Madison (Annabelle Wallis) retains having horrible visions that depict murders, which solely get extra horrible when she discovers that the murders she sees are actually occurring. The twist, nevertheless, makes it look like the killing is completed by Madison’s childhood imaginary good friend.
It’s form of like that Disney Channel Unique Film Don’t Look Below the Mattress, which can be a few baby’s imaginary good friend returning of their grownup life to horrifying outcomes that I received’t spoil right here, as a result of that film is bonkers. James Wan would do a killer remake, in all probability. Perhaps that’s the place the concept for Malignant got here from.
Malignant premieres in theaters and on HBO Max on September 10.
