I finally saw M3GAN this weekend, and the movie was a ton of fun. The vibe was more Deadly Friend than Child’s Play, and it works great. I’ll be following everything screenwriter Akela Cooper does at this point—the balance of humor and horror she strikes in both Malignant and M3GAN are what I always loved about 80s horror. What holds this movie back is the PG-13 rating, as it takes the teeth out of the horror elements. I am sure we will eventually get a rated R cut of this movie, and I cannot wait to see that.
