January is an odd month at the cinema. On one side there’s space reserved for the serious-minded flicks lusting for awards attention as they open wider and wider across the country. And on the other side is counterprogramming like M3GAN, a thriller about a robot doll that will wreck your life.

Young Cady (Violet McGraw, The Haunting of Hill House) just lost her parents and has moved in with her roboticist aunt (Allison Williams, most known for Get Out and Girls but in this household she is Peter gotdang Pan). To cheer up her recently orphaned niece, Williams brings home a prototype of her latest creation, the “companion” M3GAN (body by Amie Donald, voice by Jenna Davis). If there’s anything we know from any movies ever, the android will either bring a newfound sense of joy into this new familial unit (Disney Channel made a few of these) or start murdering motherf***ers (Disney Channel did not make a few of these).

If you’re the kind of person who was able to lean into the doofy lunacy of 2021’s Malignant (as in, a cool person), please welcome back to the stage some of the same team: a screenplay by Grimm’s Akela Cooper and original story by James Wan, the Australian vulgar auteurist who launched the Saw, Insidious, and Conjuring franchises and directed the hell out of Furious 7 and Death Sentence. Start the year off with some mayhem. It’s cathartic.
