If you like the suspense tomorrow, the film Maligno is released, a horror thriller that will give you some scares.
The genre of psychological terror tomorrow opens a new cinematic proposal with the film Malignus, by director Nicholas McCarthy, who brings together the young actor Jackson Robert Scott to give him his first big lead, who joins Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black ) to bring us a film that speaks of the supernatural, but this time more than demons are spirits that reincarnate.
With an aura of mysticism and paranormal touch, the film Maligno is a suspenseful film, which presents a scary story that starts well, but stagnates as the story unfolds, diluting all its potential to stay in a strange movie, without essence, that simply seeks to frighten us without success.
Now, I think my biggest complaints with the film Maligno is the development of the story, I do not know, at some point it seems that they just wanted to tell a story of possessions without demons, it’s like wanting to have an ice cream, without using ice cream, it ends up being something I miss that he never manages to take off.
But, on the other hand, photography, the soundtrack and the rhythm of the sequences, work well to achieve frights and frights from time to time; but, this horror movie, lacks the basics, TERROR.
In addition, I think that, how the development of the mystery is handled, leaves much to be desired, and this is not the first film that speaks of reincarnations, and for example in the indie film Origenes, the approach that emerges from life is more interesting after death and the return of the soul to the physical body; However, in the film Maligno, how we are presented with the facts of the reincarnation of evil itself, ends up being strange, not very credible, added to rare dialogues lacking in logic.
So, if you ask me if I like it, the truth is a resounding no, although it has everything a thriller needs, technically speaking, the story ends up disapproving what could have been a good, but, above all, different horror story.
Synopsis of the movie Maligno
What is it about? On the eve of the birth of Miles (Jackson Robert Scott), a terrible psychopath dies linking those two souls to the same body, this makes Miles look like a super-developed baby, or a prodigy, because he knows, understands and is capable of having knowledge that A child of such a young age can not, that happens, because the murderous psychopath continues to have his conscience and is able to take control of the child’s body.
This makes Miles amazingly clever, but with an evil essence, hurting everyone who is close to him; this will make his mother Sarah (Taylor Schilling) who perceives that something bad is happening will look for the answers to end the one that surrounds her little son.
The cast of the evil Maligno
Usually children actors tend to be very bad with very mediocre performances, but, Jackson Robert Scott manages to offer us a good performance, despite the flaws of the logic of the story, and another good element on screen is Taylor Schilling, who truly mind on paper.
However, the good performances of these protagonists do not save the story in general, and the lack of logic in the plot avoids that connection with the tape.
