Netflix debuts chilling new trailer for Malevolent
Amidst a handful of trailers released in one day, Netflix has premiered the first look at the upcoming new horror film Malevolent from Icelandic director Olaf de Fleur, which can be viewed in the player below!
Brother and sister team Angela (Florence Pugh, The Commuter) and Jackson (Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Me Before You) are nothing more than scam artists, preying on the grief stricken and the vulnerable. Their con of convincing people Angela can convince the dead works well until a Mrs. Green (Celia Imrie, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) invites them to her home — a former orphanage where a string of murders of young girls occurred in the past.
As the two continue their investigation, Angela grows less sure of what’s real, with the two suffering a reality check when they are confronted by the true horrors and terrifying past that lie within the actually haunted orphanage.
The film, based on the novel “Hush” by Eva Konstantopoulos, is co-written by her and Ben Ketai (The Strangers: Prey At Night) and was shot on location in an Old Victoria in Glasgow.
Malevolent will be hitting Netflix on October 5.
