There are many instances in films where we wonder, if this were to happen in the real world how would we even handle it? What would the real-world ramifications even be? That’s what horror fans are now wondering in the case of James Wan’s most recent movie Malignant.
The psychological horror follows the protagonist Madison as she experiences gruesome visions. Little does she know these aren’t just visions but things that are happening in real life, that she is committing with her own body, though not her own mind. It later comes to light that when she was born she was born with a parasitic twin, Gabriel, who was a part of her body though coming out of her back — think Voldemort and Professor Quirrell in Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone.
