This was so boring I kept hoping the sky would fucking explode although watching them try to destroy the asteroid was beautiful.
Demonia has always been one of my least favorites from Fulci, the gore is sublime, the death sequences both cruel and over-the-top but everything else feels like a quickly slapped together rehash of seances, a woman named Liza, a useless kid with a name that is a variant of Robert, fucked up Catholics and a cast full of the usual Fulci suspects. Maybe this would have benefited from less plot and more dreamy confusion offset by gore.
Watching the boys wander around the "Johnson" Space Center in 1998 sent me through a fuckin black hole back to 1999 when I worked at the Space Center for the summer in Houston, I was also an idiotic horny teenager who couldn't even name all of the planets in our solar system.
This was really cute, I love Beavis.
Just because a movie pays homage to vastly superior genre classics doesn't give Malignant or its makers any credibility. Please spare me saving the outlandish horror for the final half of the bloated running time, lean full into unbelievable bullshit by amping up the gore and surreal horror or lean into the boring fucking cop & family drama and imbue your characters with personalities, flaws, quirks, souls. I prefer horror to evoke an emotional response that isn't me sighing & rolling my eyes for two god damn hours. Drab, ugly, predictable, exactly what I expect from new horror and why I avoid it.
