When he’s not making big-budget superhero blockbusters for the DCEU, you can usually find filmmaker James Wan hanging out in the horror genre. He was the director of the first “Saw” film, the first “Insidious” movie, and of course the first two “Conjuring” films. Now he’s back with “Malignant”, a brand new original horror thriller with all the creepy markings of a James Wan production.
In the new trailer for “Malignant” Annabelle Wallis plays a woman tormented by gruesome dreams of people being murdered. She’s shaken to her core when she discovers that her visions aren’t actually dreams but realities and that both she and the murders are inescapably connected to a malevolent entity known as Gabriel. This is one killer trailer (bad pun shamelessly intended). Wan knows how to ratchet up tension and if the trailer is any indication this could be a real nail-biter.
“Malignant” opens wide September 10th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
