This Month’s Highlight


James Wan is delivering yet another original scary story, and considering how his track record includes Saw, The Conjuring, and Insidious, we’re intrigued. Malignant follows a young woman as she realizes the not-so imaginary friend from her past is terrifyingly real and haunting her once again. Sounds like a fun movie-night pick to kick off the fall season.
