“Conjuring” universe architect, James Wan, returns to his roots with this original horror thriller, Malignant. Malaysians can stream Malignant exclusively on HBO GO from 11 November 2021 for as low as RM23.30 a month. “The Conjuring” and “The Conjuring 2” which were also directed by James Wan, are both available on HBO GO.
In “Malignant”, 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.
Wan, who directed, produced and wrote the film, said, “I love the gritty horror-thriller genre, and after many years away from it, I felt it was time to return to my indie roots, to the harder-hitting horror-thrillers of “Saw” and “Death Sentence.” After “Aquaman” and between the “Conjuring” Universe movies and the “Insidious” films, I felt like I needed to cleanse my palate and step outside of the superhero and ghostly arenas to try something different. This was very important for me. To do something original. Something bold. “Malignant” is very much inspired by the kind of movies that I grew up loving. One that is a loving throwback to the ’80s and early ’90s style of horror-thrillers.”
Malignant stars Annabelle Wallis, Maddie Hasson, George Young, Michole Briana White, Jacqueline McKenzie, Jake Abel and Ingrid Bisu.
Behind the scenes, Wan was joined by his frequent collaborators, director of photography Michael Burgess and editor Kirk Morri, production designer Desma Murphy, as well as costume designer Lisa Norcia. The music is by Joseph Bishara, who has composed the score for all seven films in “The Conjuring” Universe, among many others.
Wan directed from a screenplay by Akela Cooper, story by Wan & Ingrid Bisu and Cooper. The film was produced by Wan and Michael Clear through Wan’s production company Atomic Monster, with Eric McLeod, Judson Scott, Ingrid Bisu, Peter Luo, Cheng Yang, Mandy Yu and Lei Han serving as executive producers.
Besides “Malignant”, George Young is also in the HBO Asia Original horror min-series “Grace” on HBO GO. In the mood for more horror movies?
