Malignant

Malignant ★★★★★

Malignant is James Wan's latest original horror film and one of the best slasher love letters that I've ever seen. Annabelle Wallis leads this supernatural giallo-inspired thrill-ride with one of my favorite performances of the year, and I think that the divide between viewers who loved and hated this will work to highlight the real genre fans. So many chilling sequences that genuinely left my jaw dropped and a very disturbing mash-up of psychological and body horror altogether, with some brutal kills and impressive character dynamics that make it all worth it. I wouldn't be surprised if this got a sequel or few. Really great seeing Wan return to form like Sam Raimi did with Drag Me to Hell, and this again proves that we're living through one of the most ambitious and creative decades of horror yet.
