The movie starts with a scene from a treatment facility where a session has gone awry. The patient, Gabriel is rejecting the treatment and seems to having special power of controlling electricity and broadcasting his thoughts via speakers. That particular night, he kills the staff that has been treating him and the head of the project decides that "It is time to cut out the cancer.", presumably, to kill Gabriel.

Twenty-eight years later, Madison, pregnant and tired is having a quarrel with her husband who accuses her of killing all their babies (all the babies were stillborn). Derek smashes Madison's head against the wall, leaving her head bleeding and locking herself in the room, crying herself to sleep. In her sleep, she sees a dark figure kills her husband. When she wakes up from the nightmare, she was shocked to see that her husband is dead and the killer is still in the house. The killer attacks Madison and she was unconscious and was brought to the hospital by the police. Her neighbour hears her screaming and calls the police, thus for the force to find her unconscious.

She wakes up to her sister, Sydney by her side who informs her that her unborn baby did not survive the attack. After being released by the hospital, Madison goes straight to her house. And once again, she dreams of the dark figure killing another person. 

When she wakes up to the story of a murder so similar to what she saw in her dream, she tells Sydney about it, who thinks nothing about her dream. But when Madison dreams another killing of a guy in an apartment, the duo goes straight to the police to have them check out the exact apartment. And the police finds the body of the man killed in his apartment, exactly as Madison has shared. 

But who is killing all these people and what is the connection between the dark figure and Madison?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.6/ 5.0 Wow. I did not see this one coming. I know the word malignant is almost always connected to cancer, but this one is gruesome and horrific. 

Cast: 4.3/ 5.0 Not that these actors are not great, but another cast would have brought a bigger performance, I would say.

Will I Watch It Again: Yes, I would - with my screamer friends!

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
