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. This marks director James Wan’s return to his roots with this new original horror thriller.

Based on a story by Wan and Ingrid Bisu, Malignant is directed by James Wan from a screenplay written by Akela Cooper, who is also currently writing the script to The Nun 2. The film was produced by Wan and Michael Clear, with Eric McLeod, Judson Scott, Bisu, Peter Luo, Cheng Yang, Mandy Yu, and Lei Han serving as executive producers. The music is by Joseph Bishara, who has composed the score for all seven films in “The Conjuring” Universe.
