James Wan’s ‘Malignant’ Trailer is the Stuff of Nightmares

Gabriel is coming…

In the new James Wan horror thriller Malignant, strange forces are plaguing Madison’s (Annabelle Wallis) mind as she has shocking visions of grisly murders, and her torment worsens when she discovers these visions are real.

Written by Akela Cooper, Ingrid Bisu, and Wan, the film also stars Maddie Hasson, George Young, Michole Briana White, Jacqueline McKenzie, Jake Abel, and Bisu. It is set to release on September 10, 2021 in theaters nationwide and on HBO Max for 31 days. 

The trailer looks pretty gruesome and filled with jump-scares as we see the visions completely overpower Madison at times. We also find out that this Gabriel entity has been with her for many years. We just don’t know why and how. We can expect a lot of mystery and plot twists from the mind of James Wan, who created The Conjuring Universe and the Saw films. The film is also Rated-R for its strong horror violence, gruesome images, and language.
