James Wan's first film since 2018, Malignant was a trip. Featuring a woman who has visions of people getting murdered only to realise they are happening in real life, Malignant is one of the weirdest and the most original horror film I have seen in a while. This is my favorite horror flick from this year and please do yourself a favor and watch it.
