Netflix announced the other day that Malevolent will be arriving on their streaming service this coming Friday, October 5th.
Florence Pugh plays a young woman who runs a ghostbusting racket with her sibling. When the pair investigates a haunted foster home where a sadistic killer used to operate, they uncover a far more terrifying supernatural force.
In this exclusive clip, the team comes across writing under some shredded wallpaper. Were they lead there by a ghost?
“Brother and sister team Angela (Pugh) and Jackson (Ben Lloyd-Hughes) are nothing more than scam artists. Preying on the grief-stricken and the vulnerable, they convince the bereaved that Angela has the ability to contact the dead. It’s a simple con, until Mrs. Green (Celia Imrie) summons the pair to her home — the orphanage that was once stage to a string of murders of young girls — and Angela grows less and less certain of what’s actually real. The fake paranormal investigators suffer the ultimate reality check when they are confronted by the true horrors and terrifying past that lie hidden within the haunted orphanage.”
Iceland’s Olaf de Fleur directs and Sigma’s Brian Coffey and Thruline’s Danny Sherman produce. Coffey produced The Legend Of Barney Thomson and Citadel. Ben Ketai (The Forest, The Strangers: Prey at Night) adapted the screenplay from a novella by EM Blomqvist.
