Malignant

Malignant ★★★★½

Was halfway expecting this to be some sort of a spin on the Eyes of Laura Mars story, only for this to just go completely bonkers quickly afterwards. Seen a fair amount of peers note that this is essentially James Wan making a film that would find itself along the lines of a giallo film, which I don't think would be enough to prepare any viewer for the craziness coming forth - just as any great horror movie should be. It feels built on James Wan taking a somewhat basic outline, before going all out in the manner that he does and I was hooked from beginning to end.

It's often repeated but here's where I think it's a fitting descriptor, you won't find a movie like this being made by a major studio coming by ever so often anymore. Just all around delightful.
