Malicious: trailer, poster, and release date revealed for John Fallon’s thriller starring Kevin Interdonato

Malicious, a thriller from director John “The Arrow” Fallon, gets a new trailer, poster, and an October release date!

The latest film from director John Fallon, the founder of the Arrow in the Head horror section of JoBlo, is a hardcore thriller that was originally announced under the title Braek – and while it will still have that title in some territories, in others it’s now known as Malicious. That’s the title it will have when 4 Digital Media gives it a VOD release in North America on October 10th… and with that date just a couple months away, a new trailer and poster for the film have arrived online! You can watch the trailer in the embed above. Our friends at Coming Soon got the first look at the poster, which can now be seen at the bottom of this article.

Malicious will also be reaching VOD in the UK and Ireland on October 16th.


Fallon directed from a script he wrote with Kevin Interdonato of City on a Hill and the indie hit Bad Frank (review here), who also stars as the film’s nemesis Jesse. Nick Baillie (Taken) stars alongside Interdonato and they are both joined by Melissa Anschutz (Best Years Gone), Alix Lane (Black Pumpkin) Danilo Rocha (Sick Minded), and Fallon himself.

The story centers on: The McCabe family’s weekend getaway was never meant to be a life-changing experience. Governor William McCabe (Baillie), a respected politician, was looking forward to some rest and relaxation. His beautiful wife Lauren (Anschutz) and distant stepdaughter Erin (Lane) strain to enjoy their time together, as the facade of the trophy family has worn dangerously thin. Things take a severe turn for the worse when a charismatic stranger (Interdonato) knocks on their door and triggers an unexpected chain of events.

Interdonato, Fallon and Baillie Produced the film. Braek was Executive Produced by Igor Princ of Princ Films. Samuel Pinault was the film’s Director of Photography. Rurik Sallé composed the score and Michael Nouryeh edited the picture.
