Saw, Insidious, Aquaman and Conjuring director James Wan has a new single-word titled horror flick coming out this fall -- it's called Malignant, and he shared the above promotional image today on his Instagram, serving up some seriously sharp giallo vibes. (It's actually making me think of De Palma's Phantom of the Paradise the hardest though, haha.) Anyway alongside Edgar Wright's Last Night in Soho I've got hopes that we might be entering a New Giallo phase of horror this year, which would tickle me purple -- I do love that ridiculous genre so, and it's odd how few get made these days. Here's what Wan had to say on his movie, which stars Annabelle Wallis from Annabelle:
"MALIGNANT comes out September 10th. 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. 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."
