Details around Malignant’s plot and possible connections to other Wan movies have been kept under wraps. But we do know that Malignant is an R-rated horror film that homages the Italian slasher murder mystery genre Giallo. It’s rated R for “Strong horror violence, gruesome images, and for language”.
While Wan is the filmmaker who launched the blood-filled Saw franchise, most of his horror movies haven’t been abundantly gory, so it sounds like he’s got something special cooked up for horror fans here.
‘Malignant (2021)’ Release date
Malignant (2021) was previously scheduled to be released in the United States on August 14, 2020, by Warner Bros. Pictures, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the film was removed from the release schedule in March 2020.
In January, Wan announced on his Instagram that Malignant would be released in theaters and HBO Max on September 10, 2021. He also shared an ominous new image from the movie.
The image shows a gloved hand holding a knife with golden wings at the blade. It’s unclear what this knife is for or how it will figure into Malignant’s plot (which we still know nothing about but do know Wallis is the lead).
While Wan did not provide any plot details or explanation about the knife, he did offer up a little caption about his new movie.
He shared, “I finally wrapped it last week. This was supposed to be my ‘little horror thriller’ I do between the big ones, but the pandemic pushed it as long the big ones.”
Wan continued, “I’m super excited for this film. I don’t even know how to describe it. I wanted to do something original and genre-bending, and different to my other work, but still in the spirit of the horror-thrillers I grew up with. More to come.”
