Chris Scott’s review published on Letterboxd:
Just truly could not get into this at all. The first half or two-thirds is so awkward and goofy I felt like James Wan and I were speaking different languages. The only thing I could liken it to was one time when I dropped acid in high school and then had to interact with my friend’s family like I was normal while fully convinced that they had conspired to fuck with me. After Malignant finally gets to its big, ridiculous twist — a windup that no shit takes like 45 minutes of people driving somewhere and discovering videotapes over and over — I just did not care anymore. There’s a 60% chance I’ll watch this again in 5 years and totally love it. But this time fucking sucked.
