Malevolent

Iceland’s Olaf de Fleur Johannesson directs a talented line-up of British actors - Florence Pugh, Celia Imrie, Ben Lloyd-Hughes - in a heady horror that utilises the tropes of the genre to genuinely terrifying effect. Isolated haunted house? Check. Creepy orphans? Check. Slow-build tension that something awful is afoot? Absolutely check.

Synopsis
