James Wan moved into the big leagues in the last few years. After making his name with low-budget horror flicks, he later helmed $1 billion blockbusters like Furious 7 and Aquaman. But before he started work on the sequel to the latter, he went back to his scary roots to make Malignant.
Annabelle Wallis stars as Madison, who has grisly visions of murders before they happen. They all revolve around an evil entity named Gabriel, who Madison learns she had a past connection to. This is pretty familiar territory for horror movies and TV, Wan remains one of the genre's top craftsmen. While he's is generally known for his in-camera tricks, this seems to feature much more CGI than usual. (Though it's probably nowhere near as much as Furious 7 and Aquaman.)
Malignant opens in theaters on September 10. It will also be available on HBO Max for one month.
