James Wan Malignant Horror Movie Trailer

Can’t wait to see this one between my fingers!

Look, I’m a simple woman: if I see a new horror movie hitting theaters, I’m going to throw my money straight at it.

So you can probably imagine how quickly I started warming up my money thrower arm when I saw the brand new trailer for Smart that fell today! No, seriously, just … check out the trailer:

This Nightmare in Movie Form is the latest from iconic horror director / writer James Wan. If you know, you know. And if you don’t, he’s the ~ twisted ~ mind behind some of the most beloved horror franchises of the past two decades, including Saw, Insidious, and Conspiracy.

Warner Bros.

He also directed Aquaman (2018), which I was told was NOT a horror movie, despite my enraged thalassophobia.

Either way, this new story follows Madison (Annabelle Wallis), a woman with an unhappy condition: she sees “shocking visions of gruesome murders”.

Warner Bros.

Wan takes your “I see people dead” and brings up a “I see people dying”.

However, Madison still becomes Following distressed when she realizes that her “visions” are not only in her mind, but are actually occurring in reality.

AND as she learns more and more about her past, it quickly becomes apparent that she is haunted by more than just “visions.” She discovers that as a little girl she started talking at random to an “invisible friend” named Gabriel, who certainly had something to do with it all.

Warner Bros.

Gabriel is a 100% demon. Absolutely not.

The whole thing is classic Wan, giving off all the “No Thanks” vibes we’ve come to expect, fused with beautiful light and sound design, wacky shooting choices *, and also a lot of “Oh no, someone. ‘one is standing near you but you don’t see them right away! ” jumping is scary.

Warner Bros.

* For example, there’s this one-time shot in an ad that I keep seeing and it’s amazing!

So, uh, yeah … there you go! Make sure to check Smart when it hits theaters and on HBO Max on September 10! Until then – if you happen to catch me looking behind me to make sure no one is standing right there – mind your own business, please and thank you.
