Malignant ★½

Just because a movie pays homage to vastly superior genre classics doesn't give Malignant or its makers any credibility. Please spare me saving the outlandish horror for the final half of the bloated running time, lean full into unbelievable bullshit by amping up the gore and surreal horror or lean into the boring fucking cop & family drama and imbue your characters with personalities, flaws, quirks, souls. I prefer horror to evoke an emotional response that isn't me sighing & rolling my eyes for two god damn hours. Drab, ugly, predictable, exactly what I expect from new horror and why I avoid it.
