    So, "Malignant" Is Finally Out And The Internet Is Losing Their Minds Over It

    "Oh, y'all wanted a twist?!" —James Wan, apparently.

    Y'all — James Wan's latest horror movie, Malignant*, is finally out and...it's bonkers. IDK how else to put that. It's just positively wild from beginning to end.

    The film's story follows Madison (Annabelle Wallis), a woman with an unfortunate condition: She sees "shocking visions of grisly murders." However, as Madison learns more and more about her past, it quickly becomes apparent that she's being haunted by more than just "visions" — and that's all I'm going to tell you, because, seriously, you wouldn't believe me anyway, so just watch it.

    And you already KNOW the internet had some hilarious reactions to the movie, so we took to the depths of Twitter and Tumblr to round up just a few of the very best for your viewing pleasure! Ready? Here we go:

    Also, WARNING: There will be some SPOILERS ahead for Malignant, so please bookmark this and come back if you haven't seen it yet!

    2. This fair question:

    why is this an appropriate parking spot???? #Malignant

    3. This apt summation:

    Many people will hate Malignant, and that's okay. The criticisms will wash over me like a refreshing spring rain. It was made for a very specific group of people; those who enjoy wild cheesy shit (me). I feel very catered to right now.

    9. This plot summary:

    malignant is about trauma, i guess, sort of? but it’s more about a bunch of fucked up shit happening, and that’s what matters

    10. This shot that's definitely in the movie:

    11. This pure flex:

    #Malignant is just one giant fucking flex of a movie. And the craziest thing is...? He didnt have to. He WANTED to. Un-fucking-real. James Wan reminding us he is the fucking man up in this piece. God bless you sir, you fucking lunatic.

    12. This A+ metaphor:

    MALIGNANT feels like a movie James Wan made bc he realized no one at WB could tell him shit after AQUAMAN made a $ Billion worldwide and he turned THE CONJURING into a franchise. It’s like he stole the boss’ credit card and threw a big rager with it

    13. This bass drop:

    Me everytime the bass dropped in #Malignant

    Twitter: @RenGeekness

    14. This food for thought:

    Is MALIGNANT the most insane follow up from a director whose last film grossed over a billion dollars?

    Twitter: @JimJarmuschHair

    15. This Aquaman comparison:

    You can definitely tell James Wan directed MALIGNANT because just like AQUAMAN, there are about a *million* horror films in this bizarre splatterfest. It’s ridiculous & excessive but super fun. This would be a perfect Halloween movie.

    16. And finally, this simple statement:

    I cannot believe Malignant exists in the current Hollywood landscape. ❤️❤️
