Malignant: A Discussion with What Shannon Watched

This week on The Movie Morlock, James Wan’s new horror thriller is the topic of discussion. The Morlock (James Kent) invites film and horror enthusiast, Shannon, from the Instagram account, whatshannonwatched, to discuss the movie currently playing on HBOMAX. Shannon likes all movies, and give her time she may watch every film ever made, but horror holds a special place in her heart. And that is why listeners of this podcast can trust Shannon’s opinion on this movie, even more than trusting the Morlock. But hint, hint–their opinions are similar.   Get set for some listening enjoyment, and a few laughs along the way.
