Malignant ★★★½

Incredibly dumb. 
But is this not one of the most inventive, stylish, and balls to the wall studio horror films since fuckinnnnn “????????” 

For a majority of the film I wasn’t too thrilled. Interesting ideas were in place (the melting house effect was killer) but the procedural detective stuff felt incredibly stale, which took up a good portion of the film. I was trying my best to ride along with the structure and melodramatic campiness by my enjoyment can only go so far.

Then Wan says, “Watch this.” And CRANKS it UP to 11. 
I don’t want to spoil anything, but things get gnarly, and to a satisfying degree.

Overall it’s very silly and dumb, but no one does it like Wan and you either vibe with it or you don’t.
