Malignant Movie (2021) Review
The movie is not like a typical horror, it was entertaining and have a unique storyline that reminded us M. Night Shyamalan did in Split better way than Wan. However, it seems that Wan is aware that most of the target audience has watched Split and that’s why he takes care of the audience in a much better way. The music, special effects, wardrobe choices, vehicles were all amazing and we were entertained. Some scenes were humorous that makes us laugh instead of scaring but that seems intentionally funny as Evil Dead cartoon monsters.
Overall, the movie was entertaining with lots of thriller and adventure. So, we give this movie a rating of 7/10.
