    It's a luscious mix of words and tricks
    That let us bet when you know we should fold
    On rocks I dreamt of where we'd stepped
    And of the whole mess of roads we're now on

    The fight scenes in that movie are ridiculous. I love how you can also tell what is going on during them which is great.

    I like your thinking. Fire up the black and white version if you can.

    They could have said 'best since the third'.

    Still have yet to see Dead Silence. Almost pulled the trigger on it a few times. Now I HAVE to watch it.

    I like Dead Silence just fine, but no.

    Malignant is bloody brilliant.

    I bought this and it finally shipped to me yesterday:



    I watched and liked all of the movies thanks to Shudder and then I discovered that Vinegar Syndrome had them in a cool box set on sale. Beyond Dream's Door is probably the best but Winterbeast is my favorite. Fatal Exam was merely decent but the last act is goofy fun. All of them were DTV movies and took years to make which goes to show you should never give up on your dreams, I guess.

    Respectfully disagree. Malignant is never scary for a second, the twist is obvious a mile away, and then once the twist arrives, it suddenly turns into a generic superhero-style fighting movie, which is really, really boring and seems to go on forever,

    Compare to Dead Silence, which is (a) actually scary in places and (b) has a equally bananas story beat that is treated in exactly the right way.

    Both have ropy first acts where dodgy actors investigate violence against their domestic partner with a (poorly acted) detective in tow, so that is a wash.

    Huh, but Last Night in Soho actually does reference Repulsion directly - with the arms coming out of the walls scene.

    I didn't feel Malignant was trying very hard to be scary. It is a giant love letter to Italian horrors and giallo of the 70s and 80s - style over anything and everything. The plot is suitably nonsensical, with phantasmagorical lighting and odd camera work taking what is a flat out stupid movie and elevating it to something memorable.

    It knows how ludicrous it all is, and revels in it.

    Being an enormous fan of the movies it references and apes, it all just worked for me.
