Hello, Readers! Malignant is a 2021 American horror film directed by James Wan, based on an original tale by Wan, Ingrid Bisu, and Cooper and written by Akela Cooper. Writer-director James Wan is a one-man horror franchise factory, having released the Saw, Insidious, and Conjuring universes on an unknowing and more unsettled globe.
Malignant was released in theatres in the United States by Warner Bros. Pictures under the New Line Cinema label, and it will be available for one month on HBO Max. Critics gave the film mixed reviews, calling it “either painfully ordinary or bloodily spectacular.”
The film has a 75 percent approval rating on review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes, based on 71 reviews with an average rating of 6.1/10. The film received a weighted average score of 51 out of 100 from 18 reviewers on Metacritic, signifying “mixed or mediocre reviews.”
CinemaScore scored the picture a “C” on a scale of A+ to F, while PostTrak claimed that 59 percent of audience members gave it a positive rating, with 38 percent indicating they would certainly recommend it.
#Malignant is easily one of the craziest movies I have ever seen… James Wan is the master of horror in my opinion and he continues to prove why. This is definitely not for everyone, it 100% embraces the campy and cheesy vibes, but what a awesome slasher flick! Crazyness. pic.twitter.com/lPJ5Qr4JlC
