Director James Wan is currently shooting his Aquaman sequel, Aquaman & The Lost Kingdom, in Watford, England and we finally have a brand new trailer for his upcoming horror film Malignant at New Line Cinema. The film is an original concept and is said to homage the Italian horror sub-genre Giallo, most nobly created by Italian filmmakers Mario Brava and Dario Agento.
Madison is paralyzed by shocking visions of grisly murders, and her torment worsens as she discovers that these waking dreams are in fact terrifying realities.
The horror film’s cast consists of Jacqueline McKenzie, Maddie Hasson, Jake Abel, Michole Briana White, Annabelle Wallis, Ingrid Bisu, and Mckenna Grace.
Malignant will hit theaters and HBO Max on September 10.
