The first thing to bear in mind is that there are (like in Hitchcock's "family plot",there the comparison ends)TWO distinct plots :
-The threesome Baldwin/Pullman/Kidman and the ominous plans of some of them.
-And then a serial killer who hangs about the campus ,in the college where Andy works.
There's a very thin ,very thin connection between the two stories,and it's a question of ...well I will not write a spoiler.
The screenplay is far-fetched,but has enough unexpected twists to sustain the interest till the very end (yes,even the very last sequence contains a "revelation") But the real meat lies in one sequence.A bewildered Andy pays a visit to an old alcoholic shrew ,played by Mrs Bancroft.Had she had a more important part,she 'd have stolen the show hands down.Every minute of this sequence is a lesson young actresses should pay attention to.Dig the way she delivers the line :"welcome to the club".
"Malice" is fun to watch,after a hard day's labor.Not much food for thought,but entertaining throughout
