Malignant - Review
Where Is My Mind? 4.5 / 5
Directed by James Wan.
Madison is paralyzed by shocking visions of grisly murders, and her torment worsens as she discovers that these waking dreams are in fact terrifying realities.
Malignant slipped under the radar with its mid-September release but ended up becoming one of the biggest surprises of the year, starting as a solid horror before unveiling one of the most insane final acts that has ever graced the big screen.
James Wan returns to his horror roots but with a few box office successes under his belt creates a wondrously wacky B-Movie that astonishes with sheer confidence in its outrageous plot that becomes so ludicrous that it somehow wraps back around to being fantastic.
This great satire of horror continuously subverts expectations that Wan had previously set in stone with his other modern horror staples. It deserves to be experienced as blind as possible, my only wish is that I could have experienced it with a larger audience just for the reactions.
It takes talent to make something this entertaining and ridiculous but Malignant went above and beyond any expectations I could have had.
