Terrifying official trailer of James Wan's 'Malignant' talks about waking nightmares and the demons that haunt within

The official trailer of the much-awaited horror film of the season, Malignant was released by Warner Bros. Directed by James Wan who will be returning to his original roots of horror and thriller after Aquaman and Fast and Furious, the film will be released on HBO Max and in theatres on September 10. 

Malignant is about Madison who suffers from night visions or a type of sleep paralysis in which she sees an entity murder people. She soon comes to the horrifying realization that the murders taking place in her "dreams" are actually happening in reality and she is somehow connected to this. Digging deeper into her own past she finds out about her "imaginary friend" Gabriel who is the supernatural entity haunting her in her sleep. 

The film stars Annabelle Wallis (“Annabelle,” “The Mummy”), Maddie Hasson (YouTube’s “Impulse,” TV’s “Mr. Mercedes”), George Young (TV’s “Containment”), Michole Briana White (TV’s “Black Mafia Family,” “Dead to Me”), Jacqueline McKenzie (“Palm Beach,” TV’s “Reckoning”), Jake Abel (TV’s “Supernatural,” the “Percy Jackson” films) and Ingrid Bisu (“The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It,” “The Nun”). 

The brainchild of Wan, Bisu and Cooper, the screenplay of Malignant has been penned by Akela Cooper. The film was produced by Wan and Michael Clear, with Eric McLeod, Judson Scott, Bisu, Peter Luo, Cheng Yang, Mandy Yu and Lei Han serving as executive producers. 

 

Behind the scenes, Wan was joined by his frequent collaborators, director of photography Don Burgess and editor Kirk Morri (“Aquaman,” “The Conjuring 2”), production designer Desma Murphy (art director, “Aquaman,” “Furious 7”), as well as costume designer Lisa Norcia (“Insidious: The Last Key”). The music is by Joseph Bishara, who has composed the score for all seven films in “The Conjuring” Universe, among many others.
