For ‘Malignant,’ James Wan Wanted To Turn His Filmmaking Clock Back

Director/Producer JAMES WAN and ANNABELLE WALLIS on the set of New Line Cinema, Starlight Media Inc. and My Entertainment Inc.’s original horror thriller MALIGNANT, an Atomic Monster production, a Warner Bros Pictures release.

Malignant is a throwback to the old days of Hollywood horror movies. Instead of relying on computer animation to augment the world he’d created on the screen, producer/writer/director James Wan looked at Malignant as an opportunity to return to his roots. So Wan, who initiated both the Saw and the Conjuring series, told us he approached the story and the script in a way that would let him shoot as many old-school practical effects as he possibly could.
