Malignant ★★½

Suffers from a similar fixation on the nebulous concept of "trauma" that plagues other recent horror films (Candyman, The Night House), something that can be an asset in the right hands but falls flat and insults the genre of the psychological thriller when it's as pronounced as it is here. However, this movie has an edge on both of those by having a bonkers third act playing to James Wan's strengths, though even that's hampered by poor acting. I wanted to like this, but we can't keep saying "the movies are back baybeeeeee" every time we see practical effects.
