James Wan’s ‘Malignant’ is all over the place

“Malignant” has a lot going on. I don’t want to say too much since it is a horror movie that is driven by twists, turns, and misdirections, but at any given point in the movie you can expect it to be either gruesome, horrific or surprisingly goofy. 

The movie is directed by James Wan, who directed “Saw,” “Conjuring 2,” “Fast and the Furious 7” and “Aquaman,” which honestly checks out here. There is a lot of early 2000s in “Malignant,” with playful camera angles, punchy foley sequences, and a straight-out-of-“CSI” industrial crime driven soundtrack. 


It certainly gives a lot, but at least one of us found that it gave us nothing. 

There is a lot to talk about with “Malignant.”
