Storyline

Nothing can quite prepare for such an unorthodox film as Malady, a bold and dreamlike tale of unconventional romance, long-buried secrets, and the possessive intensity of familial bonds. To fulfill the last wish of her deceased mother, grieving Holly seeks out love and finds it in Matthew; their relationship swiftly becomes very close and all-encompassing. After receiving the news of Matthew's ailing mother, both arrive to provide care in her final days, only to be faced with a nightmarish reality spiraling out of control. Giving a whole new meaning to the proverbial "keeping it in the family," Jack James' debut feature is as haunting as it is brilliant - a piece of cinematic art exhibiting sheer audacity and singularity of vision, bound to move and provoke.

One of the best Horror Mystery films of the year!
25 July 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wow I don't even know where to start talking about this film that is more something you experience rather than talk about. This is so far from mainstream filmmaking that you can get.

There is very little dialogue but what's said means so much and this film is not only disturbing and off putting but it is oozing atmosphere. The film feels like it's constantly shot in closeup so it feels so intimate but also claustrophobic at the same time. The score here is absolutely fantastic and to me it's what makes this film as powerful as it is.

Holly played by Roxy Bugler is dealing with the death of her mother who's dying wish is that she finds love. She quickly connects with Matthew played by Kemal Yildirim who she meets at a restaurant. Eventually they become close but Matthew receives a call about his own Mother and that's when things begin to spiral out of control.

There are strange happenings throughout the film and not once does the film tell you what they mean. There is no spoon feeding of information or exposition. When the film ends you will be frustrated beyond belief at not getting any answers but if you think about what you've seen hard enough all the answers are there. If you love slow burn films that lean more to the art-house side of things there is so much to enjoy and discover. 4.5/5 stars.
