Florence Pugh is a great actress buy you'd be better off watching her in Lady Macbeth. This one was rather boring and unoriginal. I didn't find it particularly scary and instead of it being a creep ghost movie, it sorta turns into an annoying torture-fest by the end. Poorly developed characters and a lack of scares, along with lackluster atmosphere means I'll give it 5/10 stars. It would be lower but I gave it a bonus star just cuz I like Miss Pugh.
Malevolent did not capture my attention at all. Boring and old hat as they come, _Malevolent_ might have been worth my money, (because I watched it on a Netflix account that I don't pay for, so that money was zero) but it was not worth my time, or yours.
_Final rating:★½: - Boring/disappointing. Avoid where possible._
