Count me as one who thought this was absolute trash. Shockingly bad.


An example of my writing...

Agree, awful film, atrocious script, wooden acting and yet the last 20 mins are still batshit crazy for a mainstream US release... wouldn't have batted an eye if it had have been in a J Horror

What scared me the most about it was that it got 76 on rotton tomatoes.... that beginning? I thought it was going to reveal them filming a badly acted horror scene then get into the real movie, but hell no....

Yeah. RottenTomatoes is a fucking joke now. Just a bunch of spineless shills aiming to please the higher ups.

Agree with everything thatís been said, but that last half an hour was fun. So much so I watched it twice. (The end part that is.) Too many horror movies are the reverse. Start out strong only to fizzle at the end. I thought this was a nice surprise.

Yes, so badly acted!! Me too, I also said that they are showing us that they are filming some slasher. Either that or it resembles Malholand Drive in the way they talk at the very beginning and the very end.


Man, that trash... "You'll always be my sister. And I will always love you" oh man

High energy, stupid, campy, fun story. I liked it well enough. Felt like a bad horror movie from the mid-2000s.

Agree with this. It gave me some Darkness Falls vibes. Awful movie. Lol

So we watched this over the weekend. Let's not beat around the bush... After it was over I went over to Doc Brown's house, climbed in the Delorean and went back in time 111 minutes. I then spent that time slamming my head in a car door. Time well spent. Lol!

Seriously, it's kind of like watching a train crash in slow motion, where it's so terrible and macabre but at the same time you can't look away. But seeing her run around backwards once we knew the twist was legit one of the dumbest visual choices I've seen in some time. It was goofy and immediately took the piss out of the movie. Usually with love/hate films I gravitate towards one end or the other (often the former). Even though some of the CGI was atrocious, the infamous goresoaked (Matrix meets Basket Case) f*ckshow of a climax was still a hoot though.  

It's interesting in that it tried so hard to tow some imaginary line between "Serious Horror Flick" and "Goofball Camp Fest". Trying to have your CAKE and eat it too really did hurt it.

Hang on, I'm probably being unfair. In the interest of full disclosure, I should add I'm not much of a horror movie fan, because I find it's an art form that's truly difficult to do well, with most contemporary offerings falling prey to material that's not especially scary or descending into gore fests aimed at seeing how high the body count can get. With some reshuffling of the deck, this one might have succeeded at doing something distinctly different and genuinely entertaining.

To enjoy Malignant, remove your brain (and place it somewhere safe - you don't want a bloody mess of a film like this permanently lowering your I.Q.), slouch on a sofa, put a kind of 'glazed' expression on your face, sit back and revel in the beautiful daftness of it all.

Call it what you want; Schlock. Trash. Kitsch, but, at the end of the day, as it stands now, this is destined to become a midnight show cult classic that's probably best watched blitzed out of one's mind.
