Cody’s review published on Letterboxd:
Malignant simply is James Wan having a good time. It seems he sought out to do whatever he wanted to do, with Warner Bros. willing to finance whatever he decided to do with it. What we ended up getting what a wholly original film, playing off of giallo and grindhouse, to create an epic, and truly unforgettable, film. It’s absolutely bonkers in the best way possible, and is one of the most fun theatrical experiences I’ve had in a very long time. Malignant isn’t going to be for everybody, but for those willing to give it a chance and step into this wacky world, they are in for one sweet treat. I honestly can’t wait to give this film another watch, since I had such a good time with it.
