Here’s our review for James Wan’s latest horror film “Malignant” as the Rewind of the Living Dead podcast takes a deep dive to see if this movie is worth your time…
In the era of modern horror films, few directors are as revered as James Wan after he terrified audiences with films such as “Saw” and “Insidious” and eventually creating a massive franchise based around “The Conjuring.”
Of course, Wan’s talent eventually landed him blockbuster movie credentials after he directed the first “Aquaman” movie but as he was preparing to shoot the sequel, he decided he wanted to return to his horror roots and create an entirely different kind of film.
Inspired by the Giallo movies in Italian cinema along with Dario Argento and Brian DePalma, Wan had a desire to pay homage to the films from the late 1980s and early 1990s that were such a huge part of his experience growing up where he would scavenge the very back wall of the horror section and look for the most interesting VHS cover available.
What resulted was a movie about a woman haunted by visions of a vicious killer, who is drawing nearer and nearer to her with every dead body that surfaces.
In the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we’re going to check for bleeding on the back our heads and look for clues to solve a murder as we review the 2021 horror film “Malignant”…
