The bloody revenge story MALIGNANT. After a murderous rampage, a patient named Gabriel is brought under control at Simion Research Hospital. Let’s fast-forward 28 years. As a married lady, Madison has unfortunately experienced the loss of multiple pregnancies. During an incident, her abusive spouse slams her head against the wall, knocking her out.
However, the awakening of evil results in the brutal death of her husband. Madison starts to witness actual killings as they occur. She enlists her sister and two homicide detectives to help her figure out the meaning of her visions and catch the ruthless killer.
When it comes to violence, MALIGNANT is a total carnage. The cinematography in this film produces eye-catching, original, and inventive images. Unlike previous slasher films, MALIGNANT features a compelling, albeit bleak, storyline with an unexpected twist. Despite the fact that the film’s characters are doing their best to stop the cruel killer, they also show a variety of horrific new methods of murder.
The closing 30 minutes of the film feature what may be a record for gore and violence in a movie’s final act. The amount of needless profanity in MALIGNANT is equally extreme.

Fast Forward 28 Years
Let’s fast forward 28 years. The husband of a pregnant nurse, Madison, attacks her. Something horrible is unleashed after he bashes her skull against the wall. Madison’s husband is brutally murdered, and she ends up in the hospital with a concussion and the loss of her unborn child.
After being cared for by her loving sister Sydney, Madison recovers and insists on going back to the house. She soon realises that the intruders aren’t done with them. The malevolent creature occasionally pursues her, resulting in a number of “jump scares” for the viewers. Madison also starts having vivid nightmares about brutal murders. The violent acts she has seen in her visions are reported on in the news afterward.
Madison investigates with Sydney’s cooperation and that of two homicide detectives. All of the victims are doctors with ties to Simion Research Hospital, the same facility where Gabriel committed his murderous rampage and where Madison was treated before she was adopted when she was eight years old. The key to understanding Gabriel, how he feeds off of Madison, and why he seeks revenge is to uncover her lost background as a patient at Simion Research Hospital.
When it comes to violence, MALIGNANT is a total carnage. Innovative camerawork in this film makes for some captivating images. Another aspect that separates MALIGNANT from other slasher films is its reasonably interesting, albeit very grim, storyline and its shocking twist.
Despite the fact that the movie’s protagonists are doing their best to stop the crazed murderer, they also show a variety of terrifying new ways to kill people. As an added bonus, the final 30 minutes feature what may be a record for the most gory deaths in a single conclusion. A number of severe profanities and the letter “f” are used gratuitously throughout MALIGNANT.
