Netflix is helping to get viewers into the Halloween spirit with the release of a new trailer for Malevolent. The film follows a woman who fakes being able to contact the dead. The trailer indicates she’ll be learning her lesson not to mess with ghosts after she enters an orphanage that could give any non-believer the creeps.
The 2018 horror film’s based on the book Hush by Eva Konstantopoulos. Konstantopoulos adapted her novel for the screen with Ben Katai (The Strangers: Prey at Night, creator of the TV series Chosen).
The cast includes Florence Pugh (The Little Drummer Girl), Ben Lloyd-Hughes (War & Peace), and Celia Imrie (Better Things).
Olaf de Fleur (Borgríki, Borgriki 2) directs and Brian Coffey, Danny Sherman, and Celia Imrie served as producers.
Netflix will premiere Malevolent on October 5, 2018.
The Malevolent Plot:
“Brother and sister team Angela (Florence 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.”
