What ‘Malignant’ Is About
Malignant tells of Maddie who lives in an abusive relationship in a big old house with plenty of winding corridors and banging screen doors. After the horrific death of her husband, Derek, Maddie starts hearing the voice of Gabriel. At the beginning of the film, where many years ago, three doctors, Weaver, Fields and Gregory were trying to restrain a patient named Gabriel who apparently has the power to control electricity among other things.
In the present, after the death of her husband, Maddie seems to be able to see murders even as they are happening. Detectives Shaw and Moss find it difficult to believe Maddie even as her sister, Sydney tries to convince them. There is also a tour guide who has been kidnapped and is being kept captive. As Maddie digs into her past, things become clearer and bloodier.
