In horror movies, karma for con artists can be a…well, you know.

Such is the case with Malevolent, a new Netflix film starring Florence Pugh and Ben Lloyd-Hughes as sibling scammers.

The two Americans go to England where they convince unsuspecting grieving clientele that Pugh’s character can commune with their deceased loved ones – for a price.

Payback comes when a client asks the brother and sister to her home, a former orphanage where the murder of young girls once occurred. Frightening things begin to happen, causing the would-be flimflammers to wonder if there’s an afterworld after all.
