Malignance is now being edited and will move into the final stages of colour correction and sound mixing before the Summer of 2014 is out. Here is a teaser trailer that you can check out in the meantime:
A lot of hard work has been put into this short film and it showcases a number of Saskatchewan talent and the motivation to those here that love the movie making process.
There is often a dissociation between the opposing forces of the good versus evil representation in the horror genre, where the creature’s motivation to stalk the protagonist is often driven by animalistic tendencies opposed to intellectual ones. The unique aspect of Malignance is that it explores the intimate relationship between good and evil, light and dark, innocent and corrupt. The creature is pure evil through a highly sophisticated understanding of perversion and terror, which is driven by the unyielding desire to devour the illness that plagues the protagonist. The balance of the relationship is exemplified from both perspectives of the situation, which in itself becomes quite terrifying. It is important to create the film in this manner to build a rapport between the division of good and evil. The relationship between them becomes something personable; the menacing act of something stalking you in the night becomes increasingly tense. This thematic interpretation has not yet been explored in other related horror genres.
