A Must Watch

After the death of his wife, a grieving man becomes the victim of a horrific experiment to cure his addiction.

I don't give super reviews willy nilly.

I noted that this movie got one great review, one good review and one bad review.

It definitely deserves a good review.

Yes, there are some silly parts, but it kept my attention and I was interested in how it turned out.

Some scenes defy logic but it's a movie. And for that matter, a movie with a $2 mil budget.

What does Brad Doriff get? $200k? So he gets 10% of the funds?

It does a lot with a minuscule amount of money. The original title was way better. The ending is anti-climatic so it gets a 7.

A treatment worse than the disease

Malignant (original title: "Black Butterflies") is a cautionary tale about the nature of addiction and the technology to control our behavior that is rapidly becoming reality. This story makes use of the same technology as Michael Crichton's "The Terminal Man," but here focuses on the forced relationship between the patient with the moral weakness and the Machiavellian mad scientist willing to cross ethical and legal boundaries to perform his experiments.

The lead actors are worth mentioning: Gary Cairns as Allex plays sorrow very well, making the audience feel his loss, motivating his addiction. He and the script do a nice job portraying the bewilderment of a man being forced unwillingly into an experiment and learning with horror of the consequences. Sienna Farall's character brings a couple of rare moments of joy into the story, illustrating Allex's sorrow. I'd like to see Farall in more movies. Nick Nicotera's chad is written well as a nerd's nerd and the source of technology Allex uses rather cleverly to explore his predicament, but Nicotera's portrayal was rather wooden; maybe his character needed more back story. And Brad Dourif is the star of the show as the mad scientist. When the interactions between him and Allex kick into high gear, some of Dourif's performance seems a bit forced. Maybe his character needed more motivation or maybe the budget necessitated rushing the shooting schedule.

The story flows smoothly, with the characters having motivation for what they do and the story showing those motivations to the audience. The horror is just the right amount of graphic. Kudos to one scene near the end that shows exactly the horror of what's going on; great effects. Without spoiling too much of the plot: It's a good mix of action, violence, and social commentary, well filmed and tense to watch.

THE BLACK BUTTERFLIES

Allex (sic) makes friends with Jim Beam after the death of his wife. An experimental brain doctor (Brad Dourif) decides to help Allex with his drinking problem with an implant that triggers violent actions when Allex gets drunk and passes out. As dead people pile up, Allex gets a bit concerned and wants out of this experiment, he never wanted to do in the first place.

This is another control film. It has a small cast, and was done well for what it was, but lacked dark comedy entertainment value which is what make us enjoy these features. I never felt for any of the characters. We had a drunk who feels sorry for himself and an evil scientist.

"13 Sins" a slightly different type of film has a better intensity factor. I recommend it over this one.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. Brief sex scene. No nudity.
