A musical show is a chance for the untrained, untried, untested Richard Howel, son of one of the misguided backers, to get into show business.

When airline pilot David Race has to leave home on a long haul flight he contacts a house-sitting agency who sends along one of their newest recruits, Mary Haig. She seems a nice enough girl and Race leaves her to it. "Hope it doesn't get too boring for you", are the pilot's last words before setting off for the airport. For Mary Haig boredom will be the least of her problems... Set in and around an isolated country cottage, surrounded by acres of woodland Malevolence examines the nature and symptoms of guilt following what should have been the perfect crime. Perfect but for one inherent weakness; Mary Haig’s inability to cope with the enormity of the experience.

A vortex of lust, corruption, murder, sex and death - based on the original story by Thomas Middleton and William Rowley.
Marcus Thompson's radical adaptation shot in Alicante and Pinewood Studios, brings to life the play's sardonic realism with a flamboyance of contemporary style. Startling visual imagery combined with sumptuous sets, and costumes by Elizabeth Emanuel, are underlined by a haunting soundtrack by Brian Gray and Gary Moore, which transforms the work into a powerful and electrifying cinema experience. The final outcome is a compelling and obsessive film - the story of two damned souls, Beatrice and De Flores - that culminates in an orgy of madness, sex and death.
