Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers for Malignant.
Before we dive into the film, let’s talk about trauma. It is a personal topic to many and often very hard for anyone to talk about; nobody wants to bring up something that makes them feel horrible and uncomfortable. Another thing about trauma is that it is impossible to get rid of; you may find ways to cope, but it will always be in your brain. And if you aren’t taught how to cope with what you’ve been through, episodes of extreme anxiety and depression can be brought on. So, it is very important for people with past trauma to learn coping mechanisms and identify their triggers to help make their lives a little easier. Learning to take control is vital.
