The TV spot, which you can check out below, showcases a tour through a pretty spooky house.

In Malignant, Madison (Annabelle Wallis) is paralyzed by shocking visions of grisly murders, and her torment worsens as she discovers that these waking dreams are in fact terrifying realities.
"There's been a bit of speculation as to what my next project is… all I'll say is, I'm super excited to go back to my indie roots with this hard-R thriller," Wan said of the project in 2019. "An original horror idea (not a reboot/remake or anything based on existing IP) with old school, practical effects and no giant, blue screen sets."
In addition to Wallis, Malignant will star Maddie Hasson, George Young, Michole Briana White, Jake Abel, Jacqueline McKenzie, Ingrid Bisu and McKenna Grace. Bisu co-wrote and executive produced the film with Wan, and other producers include Wan's Atomic Monster partner Michael Clear.
"Oh yes! Oh my god. I mean, I think we have something very special," Wallis revealed in an interview last year. "I think it's genre-bending. I think it's so brave. It's so original. I just haven't read anything like it. And you know, again, I'm at a place in my life and my career where it's time to be brave. It's time to push. And James Wan, we worked together on Annabelle, which was the first time I ever came to America. And then, he watched The Loudest Voice, and he said he loved my work. So, he was like, 'I wrote this part for you, Annabelle. Let's collaborate.' I think I've found in him such a wonderful collaborator, and I know that we will continue working together for years to come. He's kind, and he's so good at what he does."
"And I think it's really going to be something that audiences are pretty wowed by because it's a real passion project for him," Wallis continued. "So, I'm very excited. Yeah, let's see! That's what good art and good cinema is. You kind of throw it out there, and then you don't know how people are going to react. That's the exciting thing, you know."
