Malicious – USA, 2018

‘Children are a gift from Hell’

Malicious is a 2018 American horror feature film written and directed by Michael Winnick (Shadow Puppets) about a young college professor and his pregnant wife being haunted by a malicious entity.

Produced by Patrick Rizzotti and Brett Forbes, the movie stars Bojana NovakovicJosh Stewart, Delroy Lindo and Melissa Bolona.


When a young college professor Adam and his pregnant wife Lisa suffer a traumatic event, they find themselves along with Lisa’s sister Becky haunted — and connected — to a malicious entity.

It is only when Adam calls upon Dr. Clark, a professor of parapsychology at the university, that the true horror of what they have encountered becomes clear…


Malicious is a film that plays by the book and ticks all genre clichés. The crazy woman, the worried husband, the mysterious professor and the very cheap country house: check, check and double check! You know exactly what you get. The acting compensates a bit […] Unfortunately that is not enough.” Frank v.d. Ven, Cinemagazine [translated from Dutch]

“There just isn’t anything here that is original, very scary, or hasn’t been done a dozen times before and better. There are a few jump scares, but this movie is both tame and lame. Overall, it’s just dull.” Hampersnow
