Its only sins are a story that could stand some tightening and aspirations to be too many different things. "Malignant" is a splendidly icky monstrosity and the perfect way to kick off the Halloween season.

Malignant reminds me of another horror film that a lot of people like a lot better than I did, but was ruined because I figured out the twist too early and it kind of made the rest of the film fall flat. That would be The Others from 2001 - and like that film, I figured out what was happening in Malignant and by the time the big twist reveal happened in the third act, I already knew where it was going and so it just didn't do much for me.

James Wan is an amazing horror director - with Saw, The Conjuring and Insidious all under his belt. With Malignant he has stated that the film was inspired by the Giallo Italian horror style - and I can see the inspiration on screen. The direction is not necessarily the issue here - it's probably the why I didn't score the film lower - but I just …
