Malignant Blu-ray, DVD release set for November

Released to theatres and the HBO Max streaming service back in September, director James Wan’s latest horror film Malignant will be available for Premium Digital Ownership (including Movies Anywhere) on October 22nd, and then a Blu-ray and DVD release will follow on November 30th. Amazon is already taking pre-orders for the physical media release, so you can secure a copy of Malignant at THIS LINK.

Scripted by Akela Cooper from a story that Wan, Cooper, and Ingrid Bisu crafted together, this movie shows what happens when

Madison is paralyzed by shocking visions of grisly murders, and her torment worsens as she discovers that these waking dreams are in fact terrifying realities.

Wan has said that Malignant is his

take on that particular ’80s trope of storytelling where a victim starts seeing through the vision of a killer. There was a period where there were a lot of movies like that, and I’m a big fan of that particular sub-genre. Movies like The Eyes of Laura Mars. I wanted to do my own version, crossed with my love of [Brian] De Palma and [Dario] Argento and [Mario] Bava.”

The film stars Annabelle Wallis, who previously worked with Wan when he produced and she starred in Annabelle, a spin-off from his film The Conjuring. Wallis is joined in the cast by Maddie Hasson (We Summon the Darkness), George Young (Containment), Michole Briana White (Dead to Me), Jacqueline McKenzie (Palm Beach), Jake Abel (Supernatural), and Ingrid Bisu (The Nun).

Wan produced Malignant with Michael Clear, while Eric McLeod, Judson Scott, Bisu, Peter Luo, Cheng Yang, Mandy Yu, and Lei Han served as executive producers.

Malignant is an over-the-top, insane movie, which has resulted in it being surprisingly divisive. Our own JimmyO gave it an 8/10 review you can read HERE, and I would rate it highly myself, as I really appreciated how crazy it got.

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of special features on the DVD or Blu-ray, just this:
