Malignant: Release date and plot

After originally being scheduled to release in August 2020, James Wan’s Malignant finally hits our screens in September 2021.

Specifically, September 10th in the US and UK while release dates differ depending on the country in question.

The film tells the story of Madison, a woman who is paralysed by shocking nightly visions of grisly murders.

As her torment mounts, Madison learns the terrible truth that the murderous events she witnesses are taking place in real life and could well be linked to Gabriel, an ‘imaginary friend’ she had as a child.
