Critic Reviews for Malignant

All Critics (164) | Top Critics (19)

Wan cheerfully draws on the extreme work of horror film aficionados such as David Cronenberg and Dario Argento as he piles on the bloody violence.

October 22, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Malignant is the type of movie that requires viewers to strap in and shut up from the onset.

September 17, 2021 | Full Review…

Malignant isn't a good movie, but the bones of its giallo salute are just outlandish enough to make one wonder if the obtuse moments are purposeful.

September 17, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

There's no way to watch this deranged follow-up and not conclude that Wan's back where he belongs.

Top Critic

Wan's final twist is so maniacal and so (and this is a compliment) deeply and thoroughly stupid that it more than makes up for the minor missteps along the way.

September 11, 2021 | Full Review…

James Wan swings for the fences and it pays off big time. Malignant is a bonkers and bloody delight that showcases a multitude of different skills and styles Wan's honed through his horror films over the years.
