Siblings, Jackson (Ben Lloyd-Hughes) and Angela (Florence Pugh) run a profitable ghost-busting racket; swindling the bereaved with fake detection equipment and Angela's paranormal 'visions.'
Hired to investigate a haunted old foster home, the team uncover its terrifying past — young girls brutally slaughtered, mouths stitched shut, silenced by a sadistic killer. Angela's on the edge, sleepless, strung out and losing her mind, no longer certain what's actually real; convinced she hears the girls crying out to her from the darkness...
But supernatural terrors are the least of their problems when they discover the very real evil lurking in the isolated house.
Starring Florence Pugh, Celia Imrie and Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Malevolent is produced by Sigma Films and was shot in Glasgow, with funding support from Creative Scotland.
